James Franco denies dating “Pretty Little Liar” Ashley Benson in a blog post Thursday for the Huffington Post.
So good news, everyone, James Franco is still on the market. He quipped in the letter that he would not want to mess with any of Justin Bieber’s ladies. (Franco has also been linked to Bieber’s longtime girlfriend Selena Gomez.)
In the same posting, he spoke about “On The Road,” and his connection to the movie:
“I saw 'On the Road' at the Toronto Film Festival. I remember auditioning for that movie three or four years ago opposite Josh Hartnett -- needless to say neither of us got the roles based on young Kerouac and Cassady.”
The rumor about Franco, 34, and Benson, 22, dating began swirling after the “Spider-Man” actor was photographed canoodling with a blonde.
Benson and Franco just finished filming “Spring Breakers,” which made it seem likely that the two had shacked up.
While Franco was clearing up rumors, he figured that he might as well let everyone know that he’s not dating Kristen Stewart either.
According to the latest gossip, Franco had asked Stewart out after “On The Road” premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
Franco ended the blog post with saying:
“I also 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!”
