Remember Lindsay Lohan’s bang list? Maybe it wasn’t so much a list of guys she had slept with as it was a list of guys who’d read her bedtime stories after she followed them around for a while. That’s what James Franco claims happened to him.
Franco never actually slept with LiLo — they just made out a little, he told Howard Stern (via Gawker). “We were at this hotel during a very dark period of her history,” he says.
“It seemed pretty damn clear that she liked me. I’d come home late to the hotel and she’d come find me. I knew which room she was in and I’d see through the window, like, ‘Oh, there’s another party at Lindsay’s,’ and she would come out to the pool area and find me.
“She even broke into my room one time because she was so at home there I guess they just gave her the key. And so 3 in the morning I was on the couch, and I open my eyes and there’s Lindsay in my room at 3 a.m. and it’s like, ‘OK, what do I do now?’ I read her a story. I was in school so I was like, ‘All right, maybe I’ll get a little homework done so I’ll read her a story.’ “
Franco may be the first famous gentleman to go on Howard Stern to brag aboutnot sleeping with a beautiful woman. Lindsay was apparently touched by the attention she paid him, though — she continued to meet up with him whenever she could. She even insisted on coming to a rehearsal of a play he was directing in New York, but Franco claims he kicked her out because she was so rude to his cast. Maybe she was just cranky because it was her naptime but no one was reading her a story or bringing her her blankie.
