James Franco is reportedly trying to woo Kristen Stewart.

The pair met last week during the Toronto International Film Festival and spent a few minutes chatting it up, just long enough for her to make a strong impression.

"[They] were engaged in conversation for 20 minutes,” a source said. “There was a lot of flirting and Kristen was overjoyed by the attention she was getting from James, who was gushing over her, saying what a great actress he thinks she is and was full of praise for her latest movie, On the Road."

Compliments are the way to girls heart, after all.

"She seemed at ease in his company, and he was certainly making her laugh," the source said. "She was wearing a huge grin on her face. At the end of their chance meeting, James took Kristen’s number and asked her out for dinner. Kristen initially said no, but is mulling over the idea. She knows she has to move on now following her break up with Rob."

We're not so sure about that last part, but if Franco has his way, that's how things will work out.

"James definitely wants to see Kristen again," says the source.

If at first you don't succeed, try again, right?
