GLEE star Cory Monteith is remaining coy over rumours of a romance with country superstar Taylor Swift, dodging the speculation by insisting she is "a great friend".
The stars sparked reports they were dating earlier this year (10) when they were spotted together at a Grammy Awards afterparty.
Speculation mounted last month (Mar10) when Swift was snapped embracing the Canadian actor during a night of bowling in Los Angeles, and Monteith is refusing to confirm or deny they are a couple.
Speaking to CMT Radio Live's Cody Alan, he says, "(She's) a great friend of mine. She's pretty fantastic."
However, Monteith does admit to losing at bowling to the Love Story hitmaker, who he admits "kicked (his) a**".
He adds: "I'm not gonna deny this (losing). I was just an unco-ordinated mess that day and I couldn't put the ball into the pins. I couldn't do it. It was bad.
"She just brought the A-game. And I brought the B-game."
