Justin Bieber may hate James Franco, but Robert Pattinson has nothing but good things to say about Selena Gomez's Spring Breakers costar. In a recent interview, RPattz gushed so much praise on Franco, it sounded like a bad case of a "man crush."
In a recent interview with CIAK Magazine, the Twilight heartthrob revealed the heretofore unknown fact that one of his favorite actors is James Franco. No, scratch that. Actually, Franco may be Rob's favorite actor. He may even have replaced RPattz's long-time idol, Brad Pitt, who according to the Cosmopolis man, has never given a bad performance.
When asked to name an actor he really liked, Rob's response was unhesitating and unequivocal.
"James Franco. He's intriguing in everything he does," Rob enthused, "and he seems to have so many interests that he never does the same things."
Interestingly, Pattinson shares an extremely bizarre six degrees of separation connection with Franco. Actually, it's far less than 6 degrees; it's more like almost-incest once removed. In the past, Franco has heaped praise on Kristen Stewart in much the same way that her newly reconciled boyfriend, Pattinson, is now lauding the 127 Hours star. Even more bizarre, back in September, Franco was rumored to have actually asked La Stewart for a date. Needless to say, she turned him down.
So, there you have it. Robert Pattinson, man crushing on James Franco who used to have a crush on Kristen Stewart. (Maybe he still does.) Go figure.
