Sophia Bush Denies Dating Topher Grace

Is Sophia Bush dating Topher Grace? The One Tree Hill actress says no – though she can’t blame people having their suspicions.

Bush and Grace were papped together last Friday, grabbing coffee at West Hollywood’s Coffee Commissary.

It’s not the first that the 30-year-old actress, newly single after going separate ways with boyfriend of six years Austin Nichols in February, has been seen with Grace, 34. Grace himself is probably best known for his portrayal of Eric Forman on That ’70s Show, Eddie Brock/Venom in the Sam Raimi film Spider-Man 3, or Edwin in the 2010 film Predators.

Speaking to Us Weekly at a TCA press event on Sunday for her new series Partners, the actress was in full-on denial mode:

“Topher has been one of my dearest friends for six years. We have coffee all the time and he is actually a great sounding board for me with sort of how to be prepared with all things sitcom.”

So there we go – they’re just good pals.

Before her six-year relationship with Nichols, Bush was married to One Tree Hill‘s Chad Michael Murray in 2005 and dated James Lafferty, also from the same show.

Meanwhile, Grace dated Ivanka Trump in 2006 and his Take Me Home Tonight co-star Teresa Palmer in mid-to-late 2007. The couple got back together in 2009, after she broke up with Russell Brand.
