Julia Stiles claims that they are just 'good friends,' but Michael was seen checking out her butt!
It looks like Michael C. Hall isn't wasting any time grieving over the end of his marriage. Although it was only publicly announced a few days ago that he and wife Jennifer Carpenter have filed for divorce, the actor has been spotted strolling around LA without his wedding ring on, which we guess means that they definitely won't be reconciling.
Even more interesting are the have been rumors floating around that Michael left Jennifer, an actress whom he met while working on his TV show Dexter, for another actress on the show, Julia Stiles. Although Julia vehemently denies the rumors to People Magazine, we think she protests a bit too much:
"I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer," said Julia in a statement. "We are good friends and enjoyed working together. This is a personal matter between them, and we should respect their privacy...Although I too prefer to keep my private life, private – I felt compelled to dispel the rumors I was somehow the cause for this matter."

Hmmm...Sort of reminds you of when Angelina Jolie told reporters that she would never sleep with a married man, doesn't it?
Anyway, according to Celebitchy.com, Michael has been "checking out Julia's butt" recently, so it's possible that there may be some chemistry between the two, but only time (or the National Enquirer) will tell if there is actually more to their relationship than just friendship.
Either way, we hope Jennifer Carpenter moves on and doesn't give any "poor me" interviews like Jennifer Aniston did. Falling in love with your co-stars seems to be an occupational hazard in Hollywood, for both men and women, so if Michael and Julia did have a relationship, it wouldn't exactly be shocking news.
