Selena Gomez and Taylor Lautner: Just Friends?

Taylor Lautner and Selena Gomez sure make a cute couple, but are they really going out?

While the pictures of them on a date last weekend point to the contrary, Selena’s Wizards of Waverly Place co-star Jennifer Stone says that the teens are “just friends.”

As she explained to E! at the Catch Boutique and Operation Smile and Hope Event last night, “Just because they’re hanging out together doesn’t mean they’re dating, you know. A lot of girls have guy friends.”

While Stone says that she has yet to meet the boy in question, she’s a huge Twilight buff. “I’m a big Robert Pattinson fan, which I know if I met Taylor, he would not be a fan of me not saying he’s my favorite, but I really do love Rob.”

Celebuzz readers, have your say in the comments section: Do you think Stone knows what she’s talking about, or do you believe that Taylor and Selena are the real deal?
