Has Charlize Theron already replaced her Irish boyfriend Stuart Townsend?

Though the long-term couple split in January after nine years, Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner of "The Hurt Locker" denies that he’s taken up with the South African stunner.

"We're just friends. We're crazy about each other. I can go hang out with her and play her piano and sip Scotch,” Renner told People magazine recently.
