Actor, poet, director, producer and artiste James Franco will do just about anything, including directing a gay porn documentary and star in a movie called “Spring Breakers,” in which he has a monologue about shorts. (Seriously, it’s about all the colors of shorts he has.)
But there is just one thing this Renaissance man will not do: have sex with Lindsay Lohan.
During Howard Stern’s radio show Monday, the host asked Franco about rumors that circulated a few years back that Franco rejected Lohan’s sexual advances, Us Weekly reports.
“You turned down sex with Lindsay Lohan, didn’t you?” the host asked in his Stern-ian fashion. “Back then when she was a lot hotter?”
“Oh, gosh. Poor Lindsay,” Franco said. “I haven’t talked to her in a while…We were friends.”
The actor explained that he was living in the Chateau Marmont while his house was being renovated at the same time Lohan was living there.
Apparently, she tried to make the moves on him, but he shot her down. Stern repeatedly asked if this was true.
Although Franco didn’t even really need to explain himself because we can all pretty much guess why he’d turn down sex with the redheaded trainwreck and habitual felon, he tried to politely answer the question.
“I mean, I don’t want to brag about it,” Franco replied. “I don’t know how that got out. [Lohan] was having issues even then, so you feel weird,” Franco said. “Honestly, she was a friend. I’ve met a lot of people that are troubled and sometimes you don’t want to do that.”
