Joseph Cross moves in with Anna Friel reports say

She has insisted that they are nothing more than good friends.

Still, Anna Friel hasn't done herself any favours by moving her Breakfast At Tiffany's co-star Joseph Cross into her Los Angeles home.

And with her long-term boyfriend David Thewlis thousands of miles away filming in Europe, her cosy arrangement with Cross is only going to fuel the rumour mill even further.

Just good housemates: Cross earns his keep with the chore of bringing in the empty rubbish bins

The 33-year-old actress was snapped arriving back at her Hollywood home yesterday afternoon shortly after Cross, 23, was seen bringing two huge plastic bins in from the street.

And they have been enjoying each other's company a lot, having been seen out clubbing and for lunch together in Los Angeles over the past few weeks.

A local resident, who didn't want to be named, said: 'You see Anna and Joseph out here all the time together.

'I often see them popping down to the local shops to grab a coffee or shop in the supermarket. They are obviously great pals who are very happy in each other’s company.'

And Cross appears to be the perfect houseguest so far, even earning his keep by staying on top of his domestic duties after he was snapped bringing the bins in from the street.

Their close friendship has also sparked speculation that all is not well between her and Thewlis, 47, who she has been dating since 2001.

But this weekend she quashed the rumours by revealing that Thewlis is flying in to join them next weekend from Berlin, where he has been filming political thriller Anonymous.

Anna's four-and-a-half-year-old daughter Gracie is also staying with her having jetted in from the UK with Anna's mother Sheila last week.

Mother, daughter and granddaughter were pictured enjoying a day out soaking up the Californian rays at the Four Seasons Hotel yesterday where they spent a few hours before heading back home.

A few hours later, Anna was visited by Welsh actor Matthew Rhys, who lives in Los Angeles where he stars in the drama series Brothers and Sisters, arrived with an unknown female friend and was greeted warmly by Cross at the door.
