‘Pretty Little Liars’ star Ashley Benson not dating James Franco

Ashley BensonMrs. Carter: Don’t believe everything you read…

Prior to the start of “Pretty Little Liars” season 3 production earlier this year, Ashley Benson was off in Florida shooting a new movie called “Spring Breakers” that should present a different side to a young actress than what we see from her as Hanna. In the process of this, there have since become rumors that as a result of her spending so much time with James Franco on the movie’s set, that the two of them have also started up some sort of relationship as of late after months of being friends. From a pure standpoint of logic, this is the way that many couples do start out; on the other hand, that does not even remotely make this rumor true.

As a matter of fact, Franco chooses to mock the claims pretty openly as a part of a new entry within The Huffington Post:

“I also hear that I’ve been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson. Hot d–n, 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 a–. Yikes!”

We don’t really know where Franco is getting the claim that Benson has anything to do with Bieber, but the point here really remains the same: he and Ashley are not dating, and never have been. All the did was get along while on the set of movie that also featured Selena.
