The 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' star clarifies report that he turned down having sex with the 'Mean Girls' actress, saying, 'She was a friend.'
James Franco made use of his appearance on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show on Monday, March 25 to clarify swirling rumor about him turning down having sex with troubled actress Lindsay Lohan. The actor said, "I don't want to like brag about it. I don't know how that got out."
Franco added, "She was having issues even then, so you feel weird. Honestly, she was a friend. I've met a lot of people that are troubled and sometimes you don't want to do that." He also revealed that he already had someone in his heart. "Let's say I'm dating. I'm getting older. I would like a long-term relationship," Franco revealed.
Meanwhile, Franco and rumored girlfriend Ashley Benson recently revealed a video parody of Selena Gomez's "Like a Love Song". Franco appeared at the beginning of the video wearing "Spring Breakers" pink mask which he discarded soon. He introduced the song, "Here's a song from one of my favorite young singers, my co-star, young Selena Gomez. Remix!"
Benson sang to the whole song, while Franco took two roles as a sexy blonde woman and a handsome boyfriend. The video was shot in a dark place similar to a video parody of Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend" he uploaded before. The pair also made use of wig in the video.
Back in January, it was reported that Bieber was not thrilled with the video parodying his song because he thought Benson was cheating on his friend with Franco. Franco later took down the video. "Bieber didn't contact me, but I don't think he was too happy. I wasn't trying to diss him," he told E! News at that time.
