James Franco was commenting (and calling out) his females peers left and right during his chat on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show. From he and Anne Hathway's highly criticized 2011 Oscars hosting stint to Lindsay Lohan making sexual advances toward the actor, nothing seemed off limits for the Spring Breakers star.
Obviously, Stern, 59, led the conversation about Hathaway, 30, by stating that "everyone sort of hates" her and he isn't too fond of her either but "doesn't know why." Franco, 34, confessed that the actress didn't want him talking about the Oscars but agreed with Stern that perhaps all the dislike for her comes from her "goody two-shoes" disposition-- Stern's words, not Franco's.
When asked if he stills speaks to his former hosting partner, the actor admitted on the radio show (via Us Weekly), "We haven't talked in a while. ...Anne and I made up, by the way. Let's just get that on the record."
Adding of the awards show, "It was a really hard time after the Oscars. She wasn't mad at me, I don't think. ...She didn't say she was mad at me for what happened. ...The critics were so nasty."
His honesty didn't stop there. Stern also asked Franco to address the reports that Lohan, 26, tried to have sex with him. "I don't want to brag about it. I don't know how that got out," he said. "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."
As for his relationship status at the moment, the actor does admit that he's "dating" and looking for a "long-term relationship" as he's getting older. This confession comes on the same day as he and rumored girlfriend and Spring Breakers star Ashley Benson, 23, posted on WhoSay a video of them singing their co-star Selena Gomez's Love Song.
