James Franco declines sex with Lindsay Lohan

Los Angeles - James Franco turned down sex with Lindsay Lohan because she had "issues".

The Spring Breakers actor met the troubled actress - who is due to begin her sixth stint in rehab in May - through mutual friends and though she wanted their relationship to become romantic, he refused because he felt he would be taking advantage of the "troubled" star.

Radio host Howard Stern asked him: "You turned down sex with Lindsay Lohan, didn't you? Back then when she was a lot hotter?"

'I'm dating'

"Oh, gosh. Poor Lindsay. I haven't talked to her in a while... We were friends. My house in LA was being redone, so I did this thing where I just stayed at the [Chateau Marmont] hotel, and she had been living there for a couple years.

"I mean, I don't want to brag about it. I don't know how that got out. She was having issues even then, so you feel weird. Honestly, she was a friend. I've met a lot of people that are troubled and sometimes you don't want to do that," he told Stern.

The 34-year-old actor has been romantically linked with his Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson, and though he refused to confirm the rumours, he did admit he is ready to settle down.

"Let's say I'm dating. I'm getting older. I would like a long-term relationship," James said.
