Take his obsession with Lana Del Rey, for example.
Franco is cagey about whether or not the two of them have ever had artsy hipster sex, but regardless of whether or not their relationship is romantic, it's super freaking weird.
Last time Franco made news for
stalking his friendship with Lana he was saying some weird stuff about wanting to have sex with her music. Now, he's writing a book about his bestie entitled Flip-Side: Real and imagined Conversations With Lana Del Rey.
Details are scarce at this time, but as far as we can tell, the book will actually contain "conversations" with LDR that took place entirely within Franco's head.
Yes, nothing says "I made a tiny doll out of the hair I stole from your shower drain" quite like writing down a bunch of imaginary conversations with someone.
There's no word on how Lana feels about her buddy James' latest project, but we're guessing when reached for comment, she dreamily dragged on a cigarette before speeding off in a red convertible like the mysterious femme fatale at the end of some melancholy noir film.
Or something like that.
