Now Franco is shooting down the rumors about the drama that's supposedly been going on between him and Benson and Gomez. He also added another young actress, Kristen Stewart, into the mix ... just to make it a little more confusing! (You might remember that Franco was rumored to be flirting with Stewart at the Toronto International Film Festival last month.) In a lengthy new column for the Huffington Post, Franco makes light of all the speculation about his love life.
"I also hear that I've been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson. Hot damn, am I a lucky guy," Franco writes. "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!"
So where was that sense of humor when Franco was co-hosting the Oscars?
