There’s nothing like a new Hollywood romance to get fans excited and the media preparing a nickname combining the couple’s names. But don’t start calling Jason Segel and Katie Holmes JasKat anytime soon.
OK magazine reported the pair had started dating recently. The two met on the set of Segel’s now-concluded sitcom How I Met Your Mother when Holmes appeared on an episode in 2011.
“They’re having a great time together… she thinks he could be The One,” said a source to Star Magazine.
It seems that “source” was wrong.
Holmes’ rep Leslie Sloane told Us Weekly, “The story is completely untrue. The two have not spoken since she appeared on How I Met Your Mother.”
One fan didn’t realize she wanted Holmes and Segel to be a couple until she found out they weren’t a couple.

Another fan hopes the rumor isn’t true, she’s obviously not a fan of Holmes.
@PerezHilton No way!!! Jason Segel deserves soooo much better.

Segel previously dated Holmes’ Dawson’s Creek co-star Michelle Williams for a year before breaking up in February 2013.
While Segel may have a bit more time on his hands since HIMYM ended, Holmes may be a bit busy for a relationship right now. The actress and mother of 7-year-old Suri is currently working on an untitled “high society drama” TV show where she will play a “well-bred and educated woman.” Holmes will also be making the media rounds soon when she promotes The Giver, coming out August 15, starring Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, and Taylor Swift.
Segel will next appear in the movie Sex Tape with Cameron Diaz. The film will hit theaters July 25.
