Looks as though James Franco has more than just a little crush.
Based on his wide array of Instagram posts, Franco seems to be rather OBSESSED with the “West Coast” singer Lana Del Rey.
Although Lana revealed on Twitter that she had a crush on the “This Is The End” actor, she apparently has found love somewhere else.
Lana Del Rey, who is known to have recently split from fiancé Barrie-James O’Neill, has been rumored to be dating world-renowned photographer, Francesco Carrozzini, based on some steamy pictures of the two taken early July.
While James may be a little late on responding to Del Rey’s confession, the news hasn’t stopped Franco from pursuing the 28-year-old singer.
On Lana’s birthday, June 21, James posted a photo of the artist’s music video “Ride” and wrote, “HAPPY BDAY LANA DEL REY!! I’m OBSESSED with the RIDE video! @lanadelrey.”
Lana later responded back, commenting, “Love James.”
The 36-year-old actor didn’t stop there.
He kept on the act of proclaiming his love of the stunning singer, posting a fan-edited selfie that displayed his face covered in tattoos of Lana Del Rey. He captioned the post with the “Ride” lyrics: “I’m tryin’ hard not to get into trouble/ But I got a war in my mind.”
Throughout the course of the month, Franco’s fanboy-ing eventually paid off when the two met on July 9 during James’ Broadway play, “Of Mice and Men”. The posted photo of Franco, Lana, and Lana’s sister Chuck was captioned with the words, “”LANA LANA LANA (My new friend).”
The broody artistic stars have continued to see each other, posting pictures of their adventures touring the Rockaways and teasing their fans of their newly found friendship.
On Wednesday, Franco posted a picture of the rising star’s Rolling Stone cover feature on Instagram, captioning it with “Lana on rolling stone.”
Del Rey teased back, posting Franco’s feature on the Numero magazine with the caption, “Kittens AND bunnys?!”
Only time will tell if the poetic and creative artists are more than just friends.
