James Franco calls Lindsay Lohan “delusional”

I never thought I’d say this in all my days, but for once, I agree with James Franco on something. Remember that whole sex list that Lindsay Lohan made (which was apparently part of her rehabilitation? LOL) a while back which got leaked to the press and included James’ name? Well, he’s already denied that anything ever happened to him, but he’s still talking about it, this time to Howard Stern (via US Weekly).

“I will swear on anything you ask that I have never had sex with Lindsay Lohan,” Franco promised the prying host. “I bet if you brought her in here and you asked her face, ‘Did you have sex with James?’ she would say ‘Yes.’ I think she’s that…”

“Delusional?” Stern offered.

“Or doesn’t remember?” Franco mused. “Alright, we maybe kissed. It was lame. I can’t believe she put me on that private list! She’s so delusional!”

The Of Mice and Men star said that when they kissed he was “in awe” of Lohan’s higher celebrity status, but that he quickly felt bad about it, considering “she was young.”

First of all… “She was young”? Well, isn’t that how you like them, James? Second of all, of COURSE Lindsay Lohan is delusional, but more so about her entire life, her career prospects and her drug and alcohol addiction than about ever having slept with him. Frankly, I’m not sure who to believe here. Considering his proclivities for the young people and, like he said, the fact that he was enamoured with her celebrity status, it doesn’t seem far off. He even went so far as to say she was stalking him:

“I’d come home late to the hotel and she’d come find me,” he said. “She even broke into my room one time … I opened my eyes and there’s Lindsay in my room at 3 a.m.”

He added, “Yeah, that’s stalking.”

Stern said that maybe her list was of people she was once in love with.

“Maybe that’s why I’m on the list of her obsessions,” Franco replied.

But actually, regardless of the truth or not, why not be a gentleman and, you know, not speak about it at all? I know that’s a bit much to ask, but it’s almost tackier than the fact that Lindsay made that list at all.

Taylor Swift, Zooey Deschanel and James Franco crashed Seth Rogen’s ‘SNL’ party

SNL

I still haven’t watched this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live with Seth Rogen hosting, but his monologue went viral yesterday considering all the famous faces who turned up to… support him, I guess?

That’s right – James Franco, Zooey Deschanel and Taylor Swift all turned up to get in on the fun, and I guess it was sorta amusing or something? I dunno – I rarely think the monologues (or the show in general) is anything worthwhile these days, but this is okay. I wish this show would realize, however, that it takes more than extra celebrity cameos to make people laugh. Maybe just try being funny with the regular cast you have? I dunno.

James Franco Is “Embarrassed” About Hitting On That Teenage Girl

James+Franco

James Franco tried to use Instagram to pick up a 17-year-old girl, and it backfired, terribly. Some people thought (hoped?) the whole thing was an elaborate James Franco hoax, because some people are big Franco fans who are delusional. Mr. Franco went on Live! With Kelly and Michael and talked about it. Here’s what he said, via Chicago Tribune:

I’m embarrassed, and I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky. It’s a way people meet each other today, but what I’ve learned is you don’t know who’s on the other end. I used bad judgement, and I learned my lesson.

Oh, yeah, Franco, it’s social media that’s messed-up and “tricky”, not you, a 35-year-old man hitting on a 17-year-old girl.

Honestly, what shocks me most about this whole scandal is that it’s a girl he was hitting on and not a dude.

What do you guys think of the whole thing?
