James Franco and Ashley Benson fall asleep on a date

james-franco-ashley-benson-dating-2.jpgWhen asked whether he's dating his "Spring Breakers" co-star Ashley Benson, James Franco denied it.  "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 ass. Yikes!" he joked to the Huffington Post.

He may not have been entirely truthful. While he's clearly not dating Selena Gomez, he and Benson went to a midnight screening of "Skyfall" at the Hollywood Arclight this weekend... but it was way past their bedtimes.

According to a source, the couple was trying to stay incognito by skipping the 9 p.m. rush in favor of a late show. The trouble is, they both just couldn't keep their eyes open. "Both James and Ashley fell asleep. They were woken up by theater staff at the end of the movie," a witness tells the NY Post.
