Sara Paxton: Just Say Nico Tortorella and I Are ‘Super-close Friends’

She may be the next Daryl Hannah, but Sara Paxton doesn’t quite yet have a handle on how to put the media off the scent of her romantic exploits.

Interviewed on WZAP Radio, the 21-year-old actress – who made a splash as a mermaid opposite Emma Roberts in the 2006 flick Aquamarine – gets flustered when the subject of Nico Tortorella comes up.

And who might Nico be?

One of her three hunky co-stars in the upcoming CW series The Beautiful Life.

“I found out that you have a piece of man candy. His name is Nico,” says host Zachary Sang, referring to a June 4 JustJaredJr.com report that, the evening before in Hollywood, “the darling duo were spotted holding hands, but once the cameras were spotted, they let go.”

Sara’s response?

“Ahm… well… you knowww… We – everyone on the show, all the cast members, have become really, really close,” she says.

“We all went on vacation together – to Miami. We do everything together. So, I mean, we’re all just really close,” she continues.

“I’m looking at pictures right now: Hands caressing each other. Was he helping you cross the street?” asks Zach.

“Just, like, say ‘super-close friends,'” suggests Sara.

Later in the show, she offers a little insight into her inability to improv.

“I’m the queen of talking to myself. I’ll be in the shower and I’ll have full conversations with myself,” says Sara.

“Like the things that you wish you could say to people. I like to talk the talk, but when I get into a real situation, I’ll be a little coward and back down and I won’t stand up for myself.

“So you’re in the shower and you’re like, ‘What, punk? You lookin’ at me? You givin’ me the eye. You starin’ me down?’

“That’s how I wish I could be.”

The Beautiful Life, which is executive produced by Ashton Kutcher, debuts September 16.
