Eva Mendes has insisted she is not pregnant, saying baby rumours started because she didn't want to go through an airport scanner.
There has been speculation that the Place Beyond The Pines actress and her heartthrob boyfriend Ryan Gosling are expecting their first child together.
But Eva told Ellen DeGeneres on her US chat show that the claims aren't true.
"It all started because I didn't want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know, those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy," said the 39-year-old.
"They basically see you naked, right? And not only that, but there's a radiation aspect to it, so I always opt out. I always ask for a personal pat-down. I don't mean in person, I meant in private because they can take you.
"Ladies, I want you to know that they can take you in private, they can take you into an area."
Eva also seemed to refer to rumours that she and Ryan had split.
The couple have been dating since 2011, but they haven't been seen together in some time and there have been rumours that they have called time on their romance.
Asked what she was planning to do on Valentine's Day, Eva laughed: "I'm not a big Valentine's Day person. I'll probably just order a deep dish and watch The Notebook or something," referring to the romantic movie which Ryan starred in with his former flame Rachel McAdams.
