It seems that actor James Franco is pretty taken by the work of Lana Del Rey. He wrote a love letter-style essay about the singer, which was published in V magazine.
In the essay, the 36-year-old star gushed that “Summertime Sadness” singer is not made for this Earth, and he prompted speculation that in the future two of them might work together.
“I wanted to interview Lana for a book and she said, ‘Just write around me, it’s better if it’s not my own words. It’s almost better if you don’t get me exactly, but try.’” – Franco wrote. “She has this idea for a film. I want to do it because it’s a little like ‘Sunset Boulevard.’
A woman is alone in a big house in LA. She doesn’t want to go out. She starts to go crazy, and becomes paranoid because she feels like people are watching her. Even in her own house. It’s like an awesome B-movie that lives in Lana’s head. It’s about her, and it’s not about her. Just like her music.”
– Academy Award-nominated actor added. This is not the first time that The “Spider-Man” trilogy star has expressed hid adoration for Lana Del Rey. One month ago, he told Howard Stern that he wanted to make love to Lana’s music. “There’s a weird thing with creative types.
Sometimes I love a person’s work and, like, I’m just so enamored with that and their persona in their work. But outside of that, it’s like, our dynamic is we’re just kind of friends, we get along so well. But all this sexual attraction is for the person and the work.” – He explained.
V magazine thinks there’s even more to this than respect for singer’s music,
insinuating that Franco may have a bit of a thing for Del Rey, and that they are all for it. “We support this fully: a romance between the indecipherable James Franco and the equally indecipherable Lana del Rey.
They’re perfect for each other and he seems to know it.” – V magazine wrote.
Cosmopolitan also likes pairing of the two, going even more further. “James Franco is a very intelligent, very talented weirdo. As is Lana del Rey. We strongly believe they are made for each other and should be together creatively and romantically.” Cosmopolitan wrote.
