Eva Mendes has laughed off rumours of a romance with her WE OWN THE NIGHT co-star Joaquin Phoenix - after they dined together after work. The Latina actress has been dating director GEORGE GARGUREVICH for the past five years, but is constantly reported to be romantically entwined with her leading men. She says, "God, we went out to dinner together. We were working together so, of course, you'd go out and have a meal after work. Why wouldn't you? "I'm a grown woman! Do you think I'd be making out with somebody? I stopped doing that when I was 14. Yuck!"
