James Franco and Ashley Benson, who both star in the soon-to-be released Spring Breakers, have both denied they are an item, but pictures of the two at the movie's Los Angeles premiere say otherwise.
Despite the denials from the two stars, Hollywood Life reports that the two were seen getting close on the red carpet and then even more inside the theater once the cameras were turned off.
A source says Franco, 34, and Benson, 23, are “1000% hooking up” and that inside the theater their PDA consisted of everything from holding hands to Benson sitting on Franco’s lap and even some kissing.
Franco, who also stars in the new movie Oz The Great and Powerful, and Benson, who is most famous for starring in Pretty Little Liars, first brought up speculation that they were dating when a video was released of them mocking Justin Bieber’s hit “Boyfriend.”
Franco then denied the rumors, writing on The Huffington Post that Benson and Selena Gomez, Bieber’s ex-girlfriend and other star of Spring Breakers, “are Bieber's girls and I wouldn't dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my ass. Yikes!"
Regardless, rumors of the two are still heating up, given how cozy they’ve been spotted as they promote their new movie. Spring Breakers, which also stars Rachel Korine and Vanessa Hudgens, will be released in theaters March 22.
