The Best Man Holiday star Sanaa Lathan is laughing off rumors that she's dating NFL star Colin Kaepernick. After posting a photo with Kaepernick on her Instagram page in September, Lathan says she was inundated with questions about her dating status.

"That night I was just at a dinner and I took a picture with him. And he's a cutie pie," she tells ESSENCE. "All of a sudden the rumors are out there."

"No, it's not happening with Colin Kaepernick," she adds.

Lathan also dishes on her on-screen chemistry with Best Man Holiday co-star Taye Diggs and shares details of her next project, Repentance, opposite Anthony Mackie and Forest Whitaker.
