Odd celebrity couple alert: the ever-busy James Franco, who hasn’t been in the public eye quite as much recently, has reportedly started dating “Pretty Little Liars” star Ashley Benson, with whom he costars in the new movie “Spring Breakers.”
According to Page Six, the two have been spotted together twice recently. The first time, the pair were wandering around Washington Square Park in New York City in early October. The second time, witnesses caught them holding hands at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride.
A source tells the paper, “They have been seeing each other for a little over a
month, but things are going well,” although neither actor’s reps would comment on the story.
There’s a 12-year age gap between the two, as Franco is 34 and Benson is 22.
What do you think of the new could-be couple?
