Rumors that “This Is the End” actor James Franco and “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke are secretly dating have only just surfaced, but some reports are now claiming that the famous duo are already planning to take the plunge and walk down the aisle.
According to a report from the New York Post’s Page Six via Celebitchy.com, Franco, 35, is telling friends that he believes the 26-year-old actress is “the one” and sharing plans to propose to her in the coming months. “James is in love. He says Emilia is the most amazing woman he’s ever met, and he wants to get hitched as soon as possible,” a source said. “He’s planning a perfect proposal.”
The pair was first rumored to be dating last month after being spotted by Page Six reporters at the Frieze art fair at Randall’s Island Park in Manhattan. A witness of the duo’s outing claimed they appeared to be “quite friendly” with one another. “James and Emilia were holding hands,” the source said. “He kept kissing and hugging her. It was as if they’d known each other for years.”
Franco has recently been linked to 23-year-old “Pretty Little Liars” star Ashley Benson after the duo were spotted in New York City and Los Angeles, Calif., holding hands in October. Franco was also rumored to be seeing “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart, 23, after the two were allegedly seen flirting at Soho House during the Toronto Film Festival in September.
Clarke split from her former love, “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, in March after six months together. The British native reportedly split from the 39-year-old due to issues with their long-distance relationship. A source told E! News that Clarke’s “Games of Thrones” Europe shooting location and MacFarlane’s home base in California made it difficult to keep the spark.
