This rumored couple is really not making it easy on us.

Ryan Phillippe, who has been seen vacationing and holding hands with "Red Riding Hood" star Amanda Seyfried, sat down with Ellen Degeneres for an interview that airs Friday. As she is contractually required to do, Degeneres asked about Phillippe's dating life -- not that he was giving much up.

"I'm dating. Not nearly as voraciously as the magazines like to make out, but I am dating," Phillippe quasi-confirmed. And when asked what kind of women he likes -- perhaps blondes that wear red hoods? -- Phillippe said funny and strong. Well that helps.

Not that Seyfried has been much more helpful. In a new issue of Elle Magazine, she was asked about her alleged relationship with Phillippe, she simply said, "Um, yeah. I've been 'seen' with him."

Well that clears it up.

Phillippe did mention one interesting item -- his mom follows all the gossip online (so she must be frustrated!) and was curious why fans called him a DILF. He explained -- and it's certainly worth watching him do that.
