But the actor did not confirm who he was seeing, and this portion did not make it into the online version of the article. It’s not like I went out and had to buy a Ferrari or anything like that.
The Daily Mail goes on to insist that Franco's newest flame is Isabel Pakzad, who they believe he's been seeing since June of this year or so. She's an LA-based TV publicist, who was once spotted getting coffee with Franco back in July. But if Franco confirmed that he was seeing someone for the last four months in October, it does fall within the proper timeline. It was more about re-prioritising and figuring out what was meaningful.
He's been linked to co-stars like Sienna Miller and Emilia Clarke, and seen out with models like Agyness Deyn and Ahna O'Reilly.
It is hard now to conceive of the opening of a major film festival without James Franco appearing in at least one film.
He is arguably the hardest- working actor in showbusiness.
His ubiquity – and that less-than-stellar hosting gig – have made him a love-him-or-hate-him kind of guy.
He has danced between huge blockbusters (Planet of the Apes and Spider-Man), comedies (Pineapple Express and This is the End), and critical hits (Milk and 127 Hours).
Cinema chains then refused to show the film after the hackers threatened a terrorist attack.
In all of the destruction there was a silver lining for Franco.
Then in November last year an organisation calling themselves Guardians of Peace hacked into the Sony computer systems and publicised the private emails and salary information of the staff.
A month later the hackers sent an email demanding that The Interview never see the light of day.
Since February, when three films debuted at the Berlin Film Festival, Franco has been keeping a relatively low profile.
