Could Orlando Bloom have a new leading lady?

The actor, who split from wife Miranda Kerr last fall after three years of marriage, has been spending time with British model Laura Paine. The two were spotted out with friends in West London over the weekend and at one point were walking arm in arm.

Bloom, 37, and Paine had drinks and dinner with their friends at Little House in Mayfair before jumping in a taxi to see a late showing at Vue cinema in Westfield Shopping Centre, according to the Daily Mail.

But a source tells PEOPLE – and Kerr agrees – that her ex has not moved on, and that Bloom and Paine are, in fact, “just friends.”

“They’ve been friends for years,” she told The Mail on Sunday. “We spoke about it, we speak every day. It’s fine. People try to put me together with people I’ve been friends with for years.”

Paine – who, like Bloom, is from Oxfordshire – has modeled for H&M and You magazine.

Since his split from Kerr, Bloom – who recently appeared on Broadway in a revival of Romeo and Juliet – has been linked to Selena Gomez and French actress Nora Arnezeder.

A rep for the actor has not commented.
