Reports of a steamy romance between Penelope Cruz and MATTHEW McCONAUGHY
are hotting up - they've been touring Texas together.
The couple - who met on the set of upcoming adventure SAHARA - continue to
deny they are dating but were seen taking in the sites of McConaughy's home
state last weekend (02-05JUL04).
McConaughy and the stunning Spanish actress drove round Texas in an
identical Airstream trailer to the one SIMPLE LIFE socialites Nicole Richie and
Paris Hilton crossed America in.
And according to onlookers, the duo - who set up camp at the BIG OAK RIVER
CAMP in Texas - did nothing to play down rumours they are now a couple.
A fellow camper says, "They looked very cozy together."
