Actor James Franco has penned a satirical short story on how he didn’t sleep with enchanting child-star turned controversial adult actress, Lindsay Lohan. The short story was spawned by Lohan’s alleged hand-written ‘lover list’ that was published last March.
Lohan’s hand-written compilation of A-List conquests were allegedly obtained by a hotel employee and sold to an entertainment magazine. Among the names on the list was cinema and soap-opera heart-throb, James Franco. Franco however, insists he never slept with Lohan and he is still having a good time running with the story three months later.
The Beverly Hill Hotel employee reported that Lohan and a few friends were playfully exchanging in girl-chat when Lohan began to talk about all of the celebrity men she’d slept with. She began to jot down the names on a piece of paper, but later merely set the list aside as they left the hotel.
Other names on the list of 36 included Justin Timberlake, Colin Farrell, Heath Ledger, Adam Levine, Zac Efron, Ashton Kutcher, Ryan Phillippe, Benicio Del Toro, and others. But Franco publicly denied being one of Lohan’s former lovers. Now Franco has penned a short-story on Vice.com called Bungalow 89, detailing how he did not sleep with Lohan.
Franco’s story is a fictional account of how he didn’t sleep with Lohan at Chateau Marmont. It is the story of how a damaged Hollywood girl named Lindsay unsuccessfully attempts twice to seduce him. One excerpt of the story reads that Lohan asks to come into his room. He agrees but forewarns her that he will not have sex with her. He tells her that he will only read her a story. That story was J.D. Salinger’s Nine Stories. Franco asserts that Lohan proceeded to fall asleep after his reading.
One section of Franco’s fictional account reads, “Let’s call this girl Lindsay. She was a Hollywood girl, but a damaged one.”
Another excerpt reads, “Now we were lying in bed. I wasn’t going to f*** her. She had her head on my shoulder. She started to talk. I let her.”
Lohan’s ‘lover list’, which spawned Franco’s short story was exposed in March, and confirmed by Lohan in April. Lohan’s version differs from that of the hotel employee. Lohan explained that the list was part of her rehab program at the Betty Ford Clinic, and asserts that someone must have taken a photo of it. Lohan noted that it was a very personal list and very unfortunate to have been compromised.
Lohan has born in July 1986 and became a child model and actress. Her father Michael, was an investment banker who also ran a pasta restaurant. Her mother, Dina Sullivan was a Wall Street analyst. As a child, Lohan starred in over 100 print ads and 60 television spots before her break out film role in Disney’s 1998 remake of The Parent Trap. It was her role the film Mean Girls that transitioned Lohan into a young adult star.
As Lohan blossomed in to womanhood, she began to succumb to the lure of Hollywood night life. She descended into a lifestyle of partying and drugs, which hindered her reliability as an up-and-coming actress, and put her career in jeopardy. Lohan is now in recovery and has yet to comment on Franco’s short story that was spawned by her lover list.
