James Franco has been linked to a number of ladies recently. He was reportedly “caught” flirting with Kristen Stewart in Toronto back in September, and, most recently, he was rumored to be dating Ashley Benson.

But the actor, who split from longtime girlfriend Ahna O’Reilly last year, says he’s not dating either one—especially not Kristen, who is now back together with Robert Pattinson.

In a blog post for The Huffington Post, Franco writes:

“I also hear that I’ve been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson. Hot damn, am I a lucky guy.”

The “127 Hours” star continues:

“I wish I had actually gotten closer than the 13th row of the theater in Toronto where Kristen gave her On the Road Q and A, but I didn’t; not only did I not talk to her, I didn’t even go to the SoHo house where I supposedly asked her out on a date.”

As for the rumor that he’s dating both Ashley and Selena, whom he’s been spending a lot of time with while filming “Spring Breakers,” James says:

“…those are Bieber‘s girls and I wouldn’t dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my ass. Yikes!”

Well, there you have it, folks. Straight from the horse’s mouth.
