In the clip they showed, he shook his head no but I will bet that that was producer shenanigans and his response to a different question entirely.
I was a bit put off by the way they played up them having met before. The tone that Bennett used when he said, "Not the first time," did not evoke a visual of a casual conversation at a party or whatever. It almost sounded sinister, like they had hooked up before. Then it turns out that the big "OMG I know him!" into a "Yeah, you explained credit cards to me," at a party. But of course, it's all about the shenanigans.
