Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis insist they are still single.

However, new photos of the pair holding hands after a romantic Bali vacation suggest otherwise.

But they aren’t the only superstars who have adamantly denied a romantic relationship only to confirm their hook up down the line.

So who else has been part of the ‘just friends’ phenomenon?

Before Justin Bieber, 18, and Selena Gomez, 20, became the ultimate tween couple they told anyone who would listen that they were simply BFF’s.

But the pop sensation didn’t make a “belieber” out of his fans, who had their suspicions confirmed when they cozily walked the Oscar 2011 red carpet together.

Inside they posed for more intimate photos and have been inseparable ever since.

Brad Pitt, 48, and Angelina Jolie, 37, still to this day insist they did not hook up until he had divorced his wife of more than four years, Jennifer Aniston, 43.

The pair got intimate on set playing Mr & Mrs. Smith but claim it wasn’t romantic until much later. They now have six children together and are engaged to be married.

Considering their very recent, very public break up Twilight’s Kristen Stewart, 22, and Robert Pattinson, 26, should have remained “just friends”.

Throughout nearly their entire four-year romance – which recently ended after the actress cheated with married director, Rupert Sanders – they refused to confirm they were an item.

Stewart finally let slip last October when she called her co-star, her “boyfriend” in an interview with British GQ magazine.

They also bought a dog and a house together which they were living in until just a few weeks ago when Stewart did the dirty and they both moved out.

Even Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, 40, tried playing the “just friends” card, as did Kim Kardashian, 31, and Kanye West, 35.
