E! News reports that Kate went on to tell Marie Claire U.K. that she and Leo never had anything romantic going on.

“I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing,” Kate said.

“It’s so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did,” she continued.

“He always saw me as one of the boys; I’ve never really been a girly-girl. We needed each other to lean on because we were very young and working all kinds of crazy bloody hours and it was a shock to the system.”
