Glee's Cory Monteith plays coy when asked about dating Taylor Swift on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to air Tuesday.

"We're just friends," says Monteith, 28, who stars as Finn on the hit Fox show. "I don't know where the time is to date these days."

DeGeneres shows Monteith a photo of him with the singer and teases, "It doesn't seem like friends there!" (Us Weekly has reported the two got cozy on a group date at  a bowling alley in March, and at a Grammy party in January.)

"It's cute," Monteith says.

Says DeGeneres, 52, "It's really cute. You'd be a cute couple… maybe."

"She's lovely," says Monteith, who admitted to back in November that Swift was his celebrity crush. "I think talent is attractive," he told Us.

Swift, 20, split from her Valentine's Day co-star Taylor Lautner in December after three months of dating, but were spotted having lunch together in March.
