Despite MARK WAHLBERG saying he is not dating WINONA RYDER, he was spotted snogging her at the after party for the premiere of PLANET OF THE APES (2001).
The BOOGIE NIGHTS (1997) actor had previously said Winona's break up with Talented Mr. Ripley, The (1999) star MATT DAMON had nothing to do with him.
He said he and the HEATHERS (1989) beauty had simply met up a few times to talk about doing a movie together after the pair were seen dining together and called the reports "ridiculous. "
But the pair were talking and smooching together for hours at London's world famous MINISTRY of SOUND nightclub in the early hours of Wednesday (15AUG01) and Mark admits he finds the raven- haired actress "dangerously cute. " He says, "I'm totally single but it's great news that Winona's here. She's totally sexy. " (BRC/WNTSU/ES)
