Julia Stiles had 'nothing to do' with 'Dexter' split

“Dexter” stars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter have called it quits, but it’s not because Hall had eyes for someone else on set.

After the two actors announced earlier this week that they were filing for divorce, rumors began to spread that it was because Hall, 39, had been getting cozy with a different “Dexter” co-star: Julia Stiles.

But the 29-year-old actress said in a statement to Us Weekly that people shouldn't believe everything they hear.

"I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer. We are good friends and enjoyed working together," Stiles said. "This is a personal matter between them, and we should respect their privacy.”

And even though she, too, would rather stay mum on her private life, she said she “felt compelled to dispel the rumors [that] I was somehow the cause for this matter."

In a joint statement Monday, Hall and Carpenter, 31, revealed that they were headed for a divorce after nearly two years of marriage, and have actually been separated for some time. Reps for the stars described the split as amicable.

    I hope M C Hall comes out the closet and declares his undying love and devotion for Keith (six feet under). I was heart broken when I learnt he was "acting" in Six feet under.

    This season of Dexter was ewww because of Julia Stiles. She ruined "OMEN" too waa :'(

    I am really sorry for Ms Carpenter. She is an amazing actress and her flaws make her acting more endearing.

    Well, apparently "ugly" people can act too. No reason to slam Julia Stiles or Jennifer Carpenter if they aren't the most idealistic women. I would really hope a majority of people would be above slinging nasty remarks about physical attributes. So long as Dexter continues without issues, I'm a happy viewer. Their personal business is none of my business.

    Julia Sitles looked like she has been hit in the face with a frying pan and has the dullest expression on her face. If any guy eneded hi marriage for her, then he is obviously gay and uses her a his beard

    No way did she have anything to do with it. She's not even hot! Well, neither is Jennifer. That's my opinion though. Me? Some random commenter =P
