His first trip to "The Howard Stern Show" was a memorable one for "Spring Breakers" and "Oz The Great and Powerful Star" James Franco. As interviews with Howard Stern seem to go, the subject matter got a little scandalous.
When asked about rumors that he'd turned down sex with Lindsay Lohan, Franco was embarrassed, but open. "I don't want to like, brag about it," he says, "I don't know how that got out." Shedding more light on the subject, Franco continued. "She was having issues even then," he explains, "Honestly, she was a friend. I've met a lot of people that are troubled and sometimes you don't want to do that."
Franco also talked about his now-infamous Oscar hosting gig with Anne Hathaway. He says he hasn't spoken with Hathaway recently, but adds, "Anne and I made up, by the way. Let's just get that on the record." After the awards show, Franco made comments about Hathaway that weren't exactly supportive. Looking back on the show, Franco now says, "She wasn't mad at me, I don't think," before clarifying, "She didn't say she wasn't mad at me for what happened."
As for the growing number of people who seem to dislike Hathaway, Stern says it's fun to hate her, because "she comes off like a goody two-shoes actress." While Franco isn't part of the group that calls themselves "Hathahaters," he understands what Howard means, saying, "I think that's what maybe triggers it."
As for his current personal life, Franco admits he's getting older and may be looking for something a little more long term. He's currently rumored to be dating "Spring Breakers" costar Ashley Benson.
