James Franco is reportedly currently dating his Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson, but back in the day, there were rumors swirling about him and another young, hot starlet - Lindsay Lohan. In an interview on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show to promote Spring Breakers, Franco addressed the gossip that suggested Lohan had made numerous sexual advances towards him when they were both living at in LA's Chateau Marmont hotel.
It's Stern that brings the subject up, asking Franco, "You turned down sex with Lindsay Lohan, didn't you? Back then when she was a lot hotter?" Franco responded:
"Oh gosh. Poor Lindsay. I haven’t talked to her in a while. We were friends. I met her, I think through friends, and there was a moment where I was staying at the Chateau Marmont hotel because my house in L.A. was being re-done, and she had been living there for a couple of years, and we were basically living in the same place, so I got to know her. I don’t want to, like, brag about it, and I don’t know how that got out! 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."
James Franco: A real stand-up guy!
