Apparently, James Franco misunderstood the purpose of his recent Howard Stern interview, which obviously was: trash every former female associate in the biz. In addition to explaining the science behind Anne Hathahate, the actor dished on his relationship with Lindsay Lohan, or lack thereof.
The arm-twisting host pried into Franco’s interaction with the tottering starlet over the years, but the Spring Breakers star held strong… admitting that he, in fact, denied LiLo’s sexual advances in the nicest way possible.
Stern: You turned down sex with Lindsay Lohan, didn't you? Back then when she was a lot hotter?
Franco: Oh, gosh. Poor Lindsay … I haven't talked to her in a while. . . We were friends.
Franco explained that he was staying at the Chateau Marmont while his house was being worked on. Meanwhile, Lindsay had been shacked up there for quite some time.
Nothing—absolutely nothing—says Franco, happened between them other than friendly exchanges.
“I mean, I don't want to brag about it,” he said. “I don't know how that got out.”
Rest easy, though, Hollyscoopers… Knowing that Lindsay was struggling with a load of personal issues at the time, Franco assured Stern that he let her down easy.
