Hold up — it looks like James Franco and Ashley Benson might not be dating after all. Even though eyewitnesses claim they saw the Spring Breakers co-stars kissing and getting cozy at L.A.’s Haunted Hay Ride recently, James directly addressed the rumors with a recent blog post.
James spoke about several different topics, including how he has been teaching a film class, but closed the piece with this paragraph, “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!”
Though he doesn’t specifically say whether or not they’re dating, it’s good to know he can talk about silly rumors in a playful way.
