Ashley Greene isn't into older dudes. Sorry, Gerard Butler!

Ashley Greene didn't date Gerard Butler

Hold on a minute, Ashley Greene fans: she hasn't dated Scottish hunk Gerard Butler -- he's just too old!

"He's extremely attractive, but I think he's a little too old for me," Greene, 24, said in a new Allure interview. "Don't print that I called Gerard Butler old, I feel bad."

The two were first linked in June, when the duo was reportedly spotted exchanging a little PDA in New York City.

"He had a hand on her shoulder and leaned in to her," a source told US Weekly of Butler, 41. "He really turned on the charm." The cheeky ladies' man even put his hands on her butt, according to the spy.

Not so, said Greene. She added that her mom wouldn't allow it.

"She was like, 'Get yo' [expletive] home!'" she joked.

We wouldn't be surprised if Butler put his hand on the actress' assets, regardless of their dating status. He's a ladies' man -- and that's how he rolls.

Ashley Greene on Joe Jonas

Greene wasn't afraid to dish on her past relationship with Joe Jonas. She broke up with the newly solo singer earlier this year.

"There are certain people who are really great at keeping their private lives private. I'm not good at that," she said, referring to the constant tabloid pressure on their relationship.

She also said that she doesn't hold anything against Jonas' other ex, Demi Lovato.

"I'm really happy that she's doing well. She and I never had a problem with each other, but, you know, it doesn't go away. ... Jen Aniston still gets asked about Angelina Jolie," she said.

These days, Greene is focusing on acting -- like in the upcoming Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 -- and avoiding another nude photo scandal.

"One of my family members said to me, 'Ashley, everyone does it. You're just famous,'" she said.

Oh, one other thing she's going to do in the future: "avoid nightclubs and making out in public."
