The Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner is squashing a report that he recently made the moves on singer Jessica Simpson. 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 Renner - who brought his mom to the Oscars Sunday - told Sunday at the Governor's Ball that he only met Simpson, 29, for "three minutes."

"Her hair stylist [Ken Paves] did my mom's hair so we were talking about that -- and then all of a sudden we're dating!" he told Us.

Asked if he's seeing anyone, he told Us, "I’m single -- and looking!"

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."
