Contrary to popular belief, James Franco and Ashley Benson are not a couple.

The 34-year-old actor recently composed a blog post for Huffington Post and laid the dating rumors to rest.

“I also hear that I've been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson. Hot damn, am I a lucky guy,” Franco wrote.

The “Spring Breakers” star went on to add, “I wish I had actually gotten closer than the 13th row of the theater in Toronto where Kristen gave her On the Road Q and A, but I didn't; not only did I not talk to her, I didn't even go to the SoHo house where I supposedly asked her out on a date. 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!”

Rumors began when the pair was spotted out together at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. A source revealed that Ashley and James were holding onto one another while going through the exhibit.
