James Franco Denies Dating Ashley Benson, Selena Gomez
Don't worry, ladies. Contrary to recent rumors, James Franco, 34, is still single. Franco, the star of 127 Hours and Rise of the Planet of the Apes, had recently been linked to Pretty Little Liars star, Ashley Benson, 22, before he laughed off the rumors of the romance, as well as those that ostensibly link him to stars Kristen Stewart, 22, and Selena Gomez, 20.
Franco had fun with the gossip, however, writing for the Huffington Post, "I … hear that I’ve been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson. Hot damn, am I a lucky guy. I wish I had actually gotten closer than the 13th row of the theater in Toronto where Kristen gave her On the Road Q and A, but I didn’t; not only did I not talk to her, I didn’t even go to the SoHo house where I supposedly asked her out on a date. As for Gomez and Benson, those are Bieber’s girls and I wouldn’t dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my ass. Yikes!"
You can catch Franco in one of his many upcoming projects in post-production — Lovelace about the eponymous Linda Lovelace, also starring Amanda Seyfried, out in December, Oz: The Great and Powerful with Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis, and Black Dog, Red Dog with Olivia Wilde and Chloe Sevigny. Franco is (most likely) not dating any of the above.
