The Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner is squashing a report that he recently made the moves on singer Jessica Simpson.

People.com reported that at a recent cocktail party for his movie at the L.A. home of Madonna's manager Guy Oseary, Renner, 39, "spent the night hitting on Jessica like crazy. They were really flirting up a storm."

But that doesn't mean he's a Hollywood player.

"I'm not a ladies man!" Renner told Us. "I'm a working man! That's all."
