James Franco chatted with Howard Stern to promote Spring Breakers yesterday, and naturally their interview covered everything from Franco's failed attempt to host the Oscars to his love life. Let's get to the good part, shall we? It starts just after the 10-minute mark...
Howard boldly asked the 34-year-old actor, "You turned down sex with Lindsay Lohan, didn't you? You could have had her back then when she was a lot hotter?"
"Oh, gosh. Poor Lindsay," James replied. "I haven't talked to her in a while." Howard asked, "You were thinking of going out with her, right?" James said no and laughed, adding that "we were friends ... I met her I think through friends ... and then there was a moment where I was staying at the Chateau Marmont because my house in L.A. was being redone, so I did this thing where I just stayed at the hotel, and she had been living there for a couple years ... so we were just living in the same place and I got to know her.
But the shock jock wouldn't give up, and he asked the star, "And you turned her down sexually?" James seemed exasperated and said, "I mean, I don't want to brag about it ... 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."
So what's his current relationship status? "Let's say I'm dating," James said. "There's nothing to talk about. I feel like ... I'm mixed about the whole thing. You know I'm getting older. I would like a long-term relationship."
When asked if he's dating his Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson Franco replied, "No. No no no..." Um, so what about those photos of him licking her face the other day? We wish Howard had brought up those!
