Scarlett Johansson has hit out at rumours she is dating baseball superstar Derek Jeter.

The reports emerged after pictures were published of her kissing boyfriend Jared Leto while he paid no attention, checking messages on his cellphone.

Johansson says, "Recently I read I was dating Derek Jeter. We were at a mutual friend's party, and no, we are not dating."

She adds of the pictures of her and Leto, who she's been dating since the summer (04), "It was creepy, horrible. As long as people keep buying tabloids, they'll keep harassing people in the public eye. They'll make up stories."
