James Franco Issues The Most Pretentious Celebrity Dating Rumor Denial Of All Time

James Franco, entangled in the mainstream celebrity machine, has been the subject of several dating rumors recently. Over the course of living the fabulous life we, the media, like to imagine for him, he has been availing himself of the charms of Ashley Benson, Selena Gomez, and Kristen Stewart simultaneously. While a normal Hollywood star might be content to sit back and let the people speculate about all the top quality starlets he’s macking on, James Franco is mad real all the time, so he’s taken to HuffPo to issue a stern denial.

But not just any denial! It comes, as most of his revelations do, at the tail end of a series of longwinded updates on his life, including but not limited to:

-James Franco is teaching graduate and undergraduate film, creative writing and performance classes in Jackson, MI.

-One of his NYU classes has produced a feature film called Tar, which will premiere at the Venice Film Festival through no action of James Franco’s.

-James Franco likes a book called Holy Land.

-James Franco recently saw, and liked, On The Road.

And finally, the denial:

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!

In all seriousness, it’s amusingly written, and I imagine I’d do the same thing if I were James Franco. Plus, it’s interesting to read about Mr. Franco’s insanely crowded life, if only to feel like I’ve just worked out. That said, did he have to go and ruin Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson’s friendship? Come on, James Franco. That wasn’t nice.

      Stand up guy, that Mr. Franco!

      He has a regular column on HuffPo. It is interesting and really self-centered. I mean that in the best way possible. He’s got varied interests.

      I think that they aren’t actually “dating”, more like friends with benefits perhaps. He doesn’t seem to have time for a dating relationship.
      Of course, she would like to keep the gossip going and keep everyone believing that they are a couple. Notice all the publicity she is getting and of course she hasn’t said a word about it. She’s milking it for all its worth. Most have never heard of her until this gossip started.
