Actor James Franco has penned a short story which appears to rebuff reports suggesting he slept with Lindsay Lohan.

The Spider-Man star was linked to Lohan back in 2011, but denied speculation of a romance.

However, the gossip started up once again after Franco was included on a handwritten list of names, said to be the actress' former lovers, which was published by a U.S. tabloid earlier this year (14).

Now Franco has tackled the subject in a bizarre short story for, entitled 'Bungalow 89'. The tale lifts the lid on his time staying at Los Angeles' iconic Chateau Marmont hotel in 2011, and details his encounters with a woman named only as 'Lindsay'.

Franco writes, "Once upon a time a guy, a Hollywood guy, read some Salinger (American writer J. D. Salinger) to a young woman who hadn't read him before. Let's call this girl Lindsay. She was a Hollywood girl, but a damaged one. I knew that she would like Salinger, because most young women do."

He then adds, "Now we were lying in bed. I wasn't going to f**k her. She had her head on my shoulder. She started to talk. I let her... 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."
