Did they or did they not sleep together? That is one of the questions surrounding the relationship between Lindsay Lohan and James Franco. Lohan doesn’t have much to say about the matter, but Franco recently offered up some information about their strange bedroom encounter.
Franco wrote a short story for Vice magazine’s fiction issue.
He titled the story Bungalow 89 and although it pretends as if the character Lindsay is a fictional one, it’s clear that he is talking about Lindsay Lohan.
In the story Franco claims that the two met at Hollywood’s famed Chateau Marmont and that Lohan tried to seduce him into sleeping with her.
He instead read her a story and listened to her talk about herself.
“I ran my fingers through her hair and thought about this girl sleeping on my chest, our fictional Hollywood girl, Lindsay. What will she do? I hope she gets better. You see, she is famous. She was famous because she was a talented child actress, and now she’s famous because she gets into trouble. She is damaged. For a while, after her high hellion days, she couldn’t get work because she couldn’t get insured. They thought she would run off the sets to party. Her career suffered, and she started getting arrested (stealing, DUIs, car accidents, other things),” he continued in the story. “But the arrests, even as they added up, were never going to be an emotional bottom for her, because she got just as much attention for them as she used to get for her film performances. She would get money offers for her jailhouse memoirs, crazy offers. So how would she ever stop the craziness when the response to her work and the response to her life had converged into one? Two kinds of performance, in film and in life, had melted into one.”
Franco said that the two met in a bathroom after the premiere of A Prairie Home Companion. It was there that Lohan allegedly first came on to him. He offered details about Lohan’s past and implied that he wasn’t interested in her sexually but rather felt sorry for her and wanted to be her friend.
He ended his story by saying,
“Every night Lindsay looked for me, and I hid. Out the window was Hollywood.”
Do you think Franco’s story is true or is he just writing a fictional story based on real characters?
