Beauty queen Rachel Hunter has slammed a report linking her with actor Joe Naufahu.

Rachel Hunter appears to have hit back at reports linking her with Game of Thrones star Joe Naufahu.

In February, the Kiwi beauty queen and supermodel was snapped enjoying a night out on Auckland's Karangahape Rd with Naufahu, who played Khal Moro in the latest season of Thrones.

A picture from that night published in the latest Woman's Day shows Naufahu's arm draped around Hunter's shoulders.

The magazine claimed the couple were out for dinner and drinks, and "stayed out until nearly 3am".

An onlooker said the two appeared to be in deep conversation and remained in cocktail bar Love Bucket after it had closed.

Hunter appears to have taken issue with the story, saying in a Facebook page on her public page that Woman's Day had got facts wrong.

"Yet again I heard Woman's Day NZ get it WRONG !! Sick and tired of it! Get your facts right ! no feeling no respect for my family [sic]," she said.

This is not the first time Hunter has taken issue with Woman's Day stories about her. In 2015 the Press Council upheld a complaint about an article that presented itself as an exclusive interview with her, but was actually made up of old quotes from other stories.

The council found the story breached its accuracy and balance principles.

Woman's Day declined to comment on this story.

Hunter and Naufahu recently co-starred in Air New Zealand's Northland-themed safety video.

Hunter's agent also declined to comment.
