James Franco Claims Lindsay Lohan “Stalked” Him After Kiss

James Franco has tried to put his foot down over the claims he once had sex with Lindsay Lohan by branding the Mean Girls actress a "stalker" and "delusional." Speaking to Howard Stern on Wednesday, the 127 Hours star opened up on Lohan's recent highly publicised claims that the pair slept together, as alleged in Lindsay's notorious "sex list."

The 36 year-old actor, who is currently starring in a Broadway production of Of Mice and Men, admitted that things between him and Lindsay had almost gone that way but he stopped it. "Alright, we maybe kissed," he said, adding that "it was lame." He said the kiss was around 2004 when he was filming Spider-Man 2 in New York.

He noted that Lohan, who is now 27 was just a teenager at the time, prompting him to ask himself "what the hell am I doing." Although Franco says the kiss was as far as it went, he told Stern he realises that Lindsay probably sees things differently.

"She's so delusional!" Franco exclaimed, adding "I bet you if we brought her in here and you asked her to her face, 'Did you have sex with James?' She would say yes." Franco continued, saying that not long after the kiss he was staying in Hollywood's five-star Chateau Marmont and began to experience issues with the actress pursuing him unwantedly.

"I'd come home late to the hotel and she'd come find me," he said. "She even broke into my room one time...I opened my eyes and there's Lindsay in my room at 3 a.m." He added, "Yeah, that's stalking." Stern posited that Lindsay's sex list was instead dedicated to people she was once in love with.

"Maybe that's why I'm on the list of her obsessions," Franco replied.

The claim that he slept with Lindsay comes during a challenging time for Franco's public image: he has received a great deal of praise for his current stage role but faced some awkward questions when a Scottish teen claimed he has persistently tried to seduce her online. The Spiderman star's cringe-worthy chat-up lines were posted online following a message exchange with the 17-year-old on Instagram.

The actor appeared to dispel rumours that the incident was a publicity stunt, saying "I'm embarrassed and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky."
