(Newser) – Mel Gibson has been spotted around Hollywood with a young, attractive aspiring musician who's not from around here—no, not Oksana Grigorieva. New galpal Nadia Lanfranconi does resemble Oksana, though, the New York Post notes, but she's from Italy, not Russia. Gibson denies the two are romantically involved, but he was seen giving her a shoulder massage at a restaurant over the weekend.

TMZ notes that Lanfranconi, who moved to the US in 2007, did a modeling campaign for "F Me" jeans last year. (The classily-named pants feature an extremely low waistline.) Fox News adds that Lanfranconi also models in magazines, plays small musical gigs, and is releasing an album. (Read more Oksana Grigorieva stories.)
