Michael Cera and Charlyne YiYesterday, fans of Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera uttered a collective "Noooooooo!" when Star magazine "reported" that Cera had dumped Yi after three years of dating because he wanted to sow his wild oats (maybe with a girl named Maeby?). There's just one problem: According to Yi, who's best known for her role as a stoner in 'Knocked Up,' she and Cera have never, ever dated. Get the scoop after the jump. Michael Cera and Charlyne YiYesterday, fans of Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera uttered a collective "Noooooooo!" when Star magazine "reported" that Cera had dumped Yi after three years of dating because he wanted to sow his wild oats (maybe with a girl named Maeby?). There's just one problem: According to Yi, who's best known for her role as a stoner in 'Knocked Up,' she and Cera have never, ever dated.

That's right -- Moviefone caught up with Yi this morning -- and, through bursts of laughter, she had this to say about Cera, who plays her fictional (repeat: fictional) boyfriend in the upcoming documentary-narrative hybrid 'Paper Heart': "We weren't dating at the time [laughs] ... or ever. I also heard that we broke up [laughs]. Someone sent me an article that said I was really sad. It says that I'm sad that we're touring together. But he's actually in Toronto right now filming a movie called 'Scott Pilgrim.' So that's interesting [laughs]."

Perhaps we couldn't hear the sound of Yi's heart breaking over all her laughter, but she sure didn't seem like someone pining for a lost love. While we can't condone the gossip rag's breakup story, we'll give them a pass for thinking the two were an item in the first place. With Cera and Yi playing versions of themselves who fall in love in 'Paper Heart,' it's easy to see how they got confused. -- By Tom DiChiara
