Keanu Reeves has denied reports he is engaged to actress Claire Forlani. The Matrix star was said to have popped the question to the stunning Meet Joe Black actress after secretly dating her for three years. It was reported Keanu had got down on one knee during dinner at top Hollywood restaurant Cut.

However, the 41-year-old actor has now quashed the engagement rumors and insists the pair have never even dated. He said: "We're just good friends, nothing more."

Despite denying he is engaged, Keanu recently admitted he does want to get married - one day. The actor - who admits he has never got over the deaths of his stillborn daughter and the baby's mother, Jennifer Syme, in a car crash in 2001 - says he wants to settle down because he is lonely.

He said: "When the people you love are gone, you're alone. I miss being a part of their lives and them being a part of mine. I wonder what the present would be like if they were here - what we might have done together. I miss all the great things that will never be. It's not fair."
