We weren't loving Jessica's look as she walked the red carpet for the premiere of Employee of the Month, so we were thrilled to see her looking much better at the after party. Rumors spread quickly that Jess was hooking up with her co-star Dane Cook while filming the new movie, but both continue to deny anything ever happened. Dane attended the premiere with his girlfriend and spoke a bit about being linked to Jessica. Here's more:

Costar Cook, who attended the premiere with girlfriend Racquel Houghton, was linked to Simpson during filming, but told reporters of the gossip, "We laugh about it."

Cook is in movies with the three hottest Jessicas out there: Besides Simpson, whom he says is a "breath of fresh air – I had no idea she was so funny," he'll appear in Good Luck Chuck with Jessica Alba ("a brilliant physical comedian") and London with Jessica Biel ("amazing actress").

Did he kiss them all? "I did not kiss Biel," he said. "I kissed her ass in the movie. And then Simpson and Alba, very sweet. I'll give them that. Two lips up."
