    Attention ladies -- Robert Pattinson is not dating Kristin Stewart.

    Tweens, rejoice -- You’ve still got a shot with Robert Pattinson.

    The 23-year-old British heartthrob has finally put to bed longstanding rumors that his relationship with "New Moon" co-star Kristen Stewart goes far beyond hand-holding.

    "I am single ... almost everything that came out about my private life is false," Pattinson tells Italian Vanity Fair in a cover story.

    "I think it happens because, really, there is not much to say about what I’m doing," he added, the New York Daily News first reported.

    In the past, Pattinson has playfully dodged rumors that he and Stewart were dating.

    In an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer last month, the "Today Show" host tried to tease out a definitive answer on the topic from Pattinson, but he demurred.

    "You’re dating your co-star: Her name rhymes with 'Tristan Blewart,'" Lauer said then.

    "Umm ... there was a Liston Hewitt last year! That would be true, yes," Pattinson replied.

    In reality, Pattinson said he usually sequesters himself "like a recluse" when he’s filming.

    "I come out only to work, and sometimes to go out for dinner," he tells Vogue. "But, if you read the magazines, it seems that I have a frantic high life."
