Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

James Franco’s Short Story About NOT Sleeping with Lilo is Ridiculous.

Just in case you missed it- James Franco has written a short story about how he did not sleep with Lindsay Lohan. This story was written for Vice magazine. Warning: once read, it cannot be unread.

The story, named “Bungalow 89” however, merges the actor’s reality with quite a few pop culture references. He also uses his imagination to tell a story of a “Hollywood guy” also named James that stars in a movie “Milk” and a “Hollywood girl” named Lindsay Lohan, coincidentally that sounds just like the real actress.

He wrote, “She was famous because she was a talented child actress, and now she’s famous because she gets into trouble”.

“She is damaged. For a while, after her high hellion days, she couldn’t get work because she couldn’t get insured… Her career suffered, and she started getting arrested (stealing, DUIs, car accidents, other things). But the arrests, even as they added up, were never going to be an emotional bottom for her, because she got just as much attention for them as she used to get for her film performances.”

He then went on in his short story to talk about how his character Lohan would “get money offers for her jailhouse memoirs,” among other things that have actually happened to Lohan.

“So how would she ever stop the craziness when the response to her work and the response to her life had converged into one? Two kinds of performance, in film and in life, had melted into one.”

During the story Lohan pays a visit to James’ hotel room where the two appreciate a J.D. Salinger bedtime story. The two also talk about her sexual conquests. But he decides out loud that he will not sleep with her.

Franco wrote, “Now we were lying in bed. I wasn’t going to f—k her. She had her head on my shoulder. She started to talk. I let her.”

What is even more impressive about the story that Franco has written is the amount of name dropping he does during the story. He uses several celebs in his story from Cher and Leonardo (DiCarprio) He even mentions director Gus Van Sant and photographer Terry Richardson.

Dear James Franco. STOP. JUST STOP.

James Franco Talks Monogamy, His Favorite Sexiest Movie and Social Media

james-franco

Let me just say, I love me some James Franco.

James Franco is featured in ELLE’s June ‘Cherchez La Femme’ discussing he talks monogamy, technology and what movie he finds sexy.

Check out the highlights from the interview below.

On finding Last Tango in Paris to be a very sexy movie:
“Brando is inevitably sexy. When he’s completely uninhibited both with what he does and what he says, then he reveals a being full of intelligence who moves like a dancer and speaks like a poet.”

On believing in monogamy:
“I mean, I believe in it if that’s what you want. There a lot to be gained from various scenarios. A certain kind of intimacy and trust. But it’s not to say that monogamy is necessarily the ultimate.”

On regretting a text message that he’s sent a woman:
“Um, yeah. I have to remind myself not to text when I’m angry. Don’t do any social networking when angry.”

James Franco Apologizes For Trying To Lure A 17-Year-Old Girl To A Hotel

james-franco

James Franco went on Live with Kelly and Michael and apologized for being a creeper…basically.

Here’s the story, in case you haven’t heard…

Thirty five year old James Franco met 17 year old girl Lucy Clode at a signing in New York City. At the time he didn’t know how old she was. But that meeting then led to Franco hitting on her on Instagram thru private messages…which then led to text messages, which led to Franco offering to get a hotel room for them. Booty call, perhaps? I think so. The creepy part of all of this is that he asked her age, knew she was underage and continued thinking with his head (and not the one connected to his neck and shoulders.

It wouldn’t be long before we would ALL know about this. And of course, this all got out to the media and Franco is now the big headline of April 4th, 2014. Today during an appearance on Live! with Kelly and Michael, Franco was a guest and did address his flirtatious Instagram exchange with Miss Clode. But you could tell he was feeling quite uncomfortable.

During the interview with Kelly and Michael, Franco admitted, “I was feeling awkward — I didn’t want to come on the show and just feel awkward. I’m embarrassed, and I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky. It’s way that people meet each other today, but what I’ve learned — I guess because I’m new to it — is you don’t know who’s on the other end.”

Franco continued, “You get a feel for them, you don’t know who you’re talking to. I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson. Unfortunately, in my position — I mean, I have a very good life, but not only do I have to go through the embarrassing kind of rituals of meeting someone, but if I do that, then it gets published for the world. So now, it’s double embarrassing.”

Well he definitely does get kudos for being honest. Unfortunately now he has been bumped down from my number two crush to my number 10 crush.

On the other spectrum of things, many are speculating that Franco’s social media misstep may have been a publicity stunt tied to his movie Palo Alto, which oddly enough involves his character’s seduction of a high schooler.

My question is, did Franco REALLY think that this girl wasn’t going to say anything?!! Duh, she’s 17!!!

James Franco Turned Down Lindsay Lohan’s Sexual Advances!

james-franco

Shocker! Believe it or not, there are some celebrities out there that have gotten sexual advances from Lindsay Lohan and have not acted on them. Okay, so I know there probably have been a ton of peeps Lilo has hit on and they’ve turned her down, but remember when she was hotter and could have legitly landed a hottie in the sack?

Well, according to our friends at HaveUHeard, James Franco is one of them…well, one of the stars that COULD have slept with Freckles if he wanted to…back when she was actually hot hot.

On the Howard Stern SiriusXM show, Franco revealed all when Stern asked the million dollar question. “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.”

Well, the A-list actor sure skirted around the issue but Stern made sure to get his answer.

Franco went on to add that he met Lohan “through friends” back when he was staying at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in West Hollywood.

Stern continued, “And you turned her down sexually?”

See what Franco said in his response here! It is quite humorous! Gotta love Mr. Franco!

James Franco and Ashley Benson Are Doin’ It!

And if they’re not, they need to start soon and make a believer outta me!

And forgive me for being perceptively snarky, but…. doesn’t Benson look like a pre-trashy Tara Reid? If she ends up being more like Tara than people are bargaining for, Franco better hit it and hit it hard now before the goods get wasted with the quickness. Because I know I am not the only one around here that remembers how quickly Tara’s stock plummeted. For those of you that have forgotten, Tara was basically holding the White Girl Wasted baton before Lindsay Lohan snatched it out of her hand around the mid-2000s. And this Ashley Benson may not be in her league yet, but she certainly needs to raise her name recognition, because I barely know who the hell this alleged actress is!

Here’s what Franco had to say about it all…
“I … 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 SoHo House where I supposedly asked her out on a date.”

Lies!

I’ve not heard anything about him and Selena Gomez (pedophile!) or Kristen Stewart (cheater!), so this makes him even seem more suspect. Make an honest whore skank starlet out of this girl, Franco! Up her profile, make her a star, and then dump her for another starlet!
Ah, Hollywood!

CELEB SPOTTING: James Franco Cuddling With Ashley Benson at Halloween Horror Nights

James Franco was recently spotted at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights having a frighteningly good time with rumored girlfriend Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson. The two met while filming Spring Breakers together. The terrified pair was seen tightly holding on to one another as they braved haunted mazes including “The Walking Dead: Dead Inside,” “Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Saw is the Law” and also took a ride on the new “Transformers: The Ride 3-D.”

Franco, wearing a baseball cap and sporting a scruffy beard, managed to go largely unrecognized as he traversed the dark theme park with only one fan approaching the friendly star, who happily posed for a photo. A fan also caught him cuddling with Ashley, posting on Instagram.

Check them out here.

James Franco Turned Down Rihanna!

I have been rolling my eyes at some of the men that Rihanna has been choosing for her extracurricular satisfaction, but James Franco I can agree with. Ok so she hasn’t smooched up on Mr. Franco…yet…but she could have had him for her We Found Love video. But he turned her down.

Boo.

Instead Ri steamed up her video with model Dudley O’Shaughnessy.

Franco said, “I do like Rihanna. She actually asked me to be in that [“We Found Love”] video, the one with the relationship that gets crazy. I couldn’t do it. I guess I hope that means there’s mutual love between us.”

You hear that Rihanna?

AND, get this. He is pretty damn sure he will be working with Rihanna sometime in the future. He said, “I think she’s gonna be in the new movie that I’m doing, Seth Rogen’s directorial debut. I think she has a little part in that.”

In other words, there will be some booty knocking sometime soon. Be on the lookout for those reports, y’all!

James Franco Flaunts his Booty, Calls It Art

Because if you KNOW James Franco like I know James Franco, everything is art.

You all know how much I adore James Franco (his squinty smiling eyes, his James Dean hair) but I just may be getting a tad sick of his artsy arrogance. Ask me in another month what I think and I’ll tell ya. Sigh. I know one thing that I am not complaining about is James Franco’s Flaunt cover.

I have never seen his booty before, so I was very pleasantly surprised to see his behind presented in an artfully creative manner.

The NSFW photo is below if you dare. Yes, please.

James Franco snags art of himself from 13-year-old fan

Ok so I am a tad jealous and sadly, I am jealous of a 13-year-old girl. Pathetic, I know. You all know how much I adore James Franco, squinty smoked out glossy eyes and all, but while he was at the Toronto Film Festival to talk about his “Memories of Idaho” art installation, Franco snagged up some art of himself from 13-year-old Macy Armstrong. Macy just happens to be a hardcore fan who runs a Tumblr site devoted to Mr. Franco.

Quote of the Day: James Franco

“I had a close friend in school, and there were rumors that we were gay. Those rumors were started by – who knows? – people who were jealous, people who had been picked on, girls who had been picked on. So they started these rumors. I like it now that people said I was gay. It’s kind of cool.”

Melissa Leo Wasn’t the Only One Setting Off Bombs at the Oscars

Oscar 2011 highlights

After months of predictably relentless anticipation, the Academy Awards were handed out last night  — in a lackluster show that some are calling the “worst Oscars ever.” There were few surprises: As expected, The King’s Speech nabbed the Best Picture prize, and Colin Firth and Natalie Portman took home trophies for Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively. Still, the internets were atwitter last night and this morning with some very strong voices. Here’s what’s buzzing about last night’s show:

1. The James Franco and Anne Hathaway hosting disaster

The Academy seemed to be psyched about their “young, hip” co-hosts for the 2011 awards show. In coming weeks they flooded the nation with witty 30 second spots including wardrobe malfunctions, promises of real-time Twitter updates and the two flashing their gorgeous mugs for any camera in a 30 mile radius. The hype, however, did not live up. The two hosts seemed to be “operating in alternate realities,” say Willa Paskin and Kyle Buchanan in New York. “Hathaway committed [to her hosting duties], and committed hard,” energetically singing, dancing, toothily smiling and woo-hooing. “Franco, meanwhile, went blank-slate, projecting nothing except expressions verging on outright disdain,” and left “Hathaway hanging in the wind.”

I concur, often times I saw James staring into space and wondered if he had been served a little too much bubbly and Mary Jane backstage. He was, after all, looking at the audience like they were items on the 99 cent menu at Taco Bell.
