She told Britain's Elle magazine, "I am totally single... Listen, we hang out. We've known each other for 15 years. We have mutual friends. We're comfortable with one another. That's it! There's no crazy love story, nothing more."
The actress split from longterm boyfriend Macaulay Culkin in 2010, and it's been difficult dating ever since.
She explained, "Is a guy going to come up to me and ask if he can take me out on a date? Where can I go and have this date? I can't go anywhere! My house, his house... So what do you do? I'm trying to be like a normal girl and a single girl... but the concept of being single and in my position is just not workable. I couldn't even go on a date if I wanted to!"
She added, "I don't go out because when I do, everybody sees me. It's not like I'm having illicit rendezvous because there's no such thing as secret in my life."
However, the actress is open to online dating. "If I didn't do what I do, I would do internet dating instead of going out to bars. In two seconds I would. It makes so much more sense," she told recently told Glamour magazine.
