Despite rumors of a romance, Katie Holmes is still on the market.

Just two months after finalizing her divorce from Tom Cruise, Holmes has fallen for fellow actor Alex Schemmer, according to Woman’s Day. But the actress’ rep is shooting down the speculative report, confirming there are no sparks flying in Holmes’ love life.

“She isn’t dating anyone,” Leslie Sloane told Celebuzz.

Schemmer is a little-known thespian who has appeared on the small screen in shows like Cougar Town, Weeds, Big Love, and House, and even popped up on the silver screen for a role in Ben Affleck’s blockbuster hit, Argo.

But now he has picked up the pen, helming the script for Holmes’ upcoming romantic comedy, Responsible Adults, in which she stars alongside Gossip Girl hunk Chace Crawford.

“They started off having a quick phone chat about the film and they just really hit it off,” a source told Woman’s Day. “Katie has a massive crush on Alex. It’s pretty adorable how much she likes him.”

But for now, Holmes — who filed for divorce from Cruise after five years of marriage on June 29 — is embracing her single status. While her dating life sits on the back burner, Holmes is concentrating on her career. Not only is she racking up acting roles — on Broadway in Dead Accounts and on the big-screen in Responsible Adults and Molly — but she also debuted her first collection, Holmes & Yang, at New York Fashion Week last month.
