James Franco loves to stir the pot. From naked selfies to trying to seduce a young fan, the current Broadway star is at it again. This time, he wrote a short story for Vice about Lindsay Lohan called “Bungalow 89.”
The story addresses the infamous night at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood. Lohan claims they slept together while Franco claims he just read her J.D. Salinger stories. Which story is true?
The Of Mice and Men actor wrote, “Once upon a time a guy, a Hollywood guy, read some Salinger to a young woman who hadn’t read him before. Let’s call this girl Lindsay. She was a Hollywood girl, but a damaged one.”
He continued, “Salinger would be a companion to young women, real young women, for years, and then, one fateful night, he would sleep with them and the friendship would end. After that, after he f***ed them, they were no longer the innocent ones running through the rye to be caught before they went over the cliff. They had gone over, and he had been the one to push them.”
The essay fluctuates between fantasy and reality as the This Is the End star takes the reader on a journey that questions whether they hooked up or not in the infamous bungalows at the Hollywood hideout.
He leaves the reader wondering with this final thought, “Every night Lindsay looked for me, and I hid. Out the window was Hollywood.”
Even if he didn’t sleep with Lohan, he sure wants fans to keep talking about this story.
