Here's James Franco's Story About a One Night Stand with Lindsay Lohan

Hollywood Actor, James Franco wrote a short story titled, "Bungalow 89" in Vice's new fiction issue.

This short story is supposed to be fictional but it contains several biographical details about a character called, "Lindsay Lohan." "Bungalow 89" reads more like a drown out over explanation from James Franco that he did not sleep with Lindsay Lohan, despite what her "sex list" may say. Apparently, Franco and Lohan were both guests at a hotel, and Lohan would not give up on trying to sleep with him. According to his short story, this is what he said:
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. I knew that she would like Salinger, because most young women do. I read her two of the Nine Stories, "A Perfect Day for Bananafish" and "For Esmé—with Love and Squalor." "Bananafish" was great because it has a nagging mother on the other end of the phone line, nothing like Lindsay's real mother, but still, the mother-daughter thing was good for her to hear. And there's the little girl in the story, Sibyl, and the pale suicide, Seymour, who kisses her foot and talks about bananafish with her, those fantastic phallic fish who stick their heads in holes and gorge themselves—it should be called "A Perfect Day for Dickfish"—and then, bam, he shoots himself.
But, just to make himself clear, he continues to describe what happened, pointing out that they did not sleep together:
Now we were lying in bed. I wasn't going to fuck her. She had her head on my shoulder. She started to talk. I let her.
In March of 2014, In Touch Weekly, claimed to have a list of 36 famous sexual partners. Included on that list was James Franco. Franco had his first major role in "Daniel Desario", on the short lived TV serie Freaks and GeeksIn 2001, he won a Golden Globe Award for his work on James DeanHe would later star as Harry Osborn in the Spider-Man trilogy and work on Pineapple Express, Milk, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  Despite Franco's work on Vice's fiction issue, he wants to let you know that he did not sleep with Lindsay Lohan. But, his description of Lindsay Lohan reads more like non-fiction than anything else.
I ran my fingers through her hair and thought about this girl sleeping on my chest, our fictional Hollywood girl, Lindsay. What will she do? I hope she gets better. You see, she is famous. She was famous because she was a talented child actress, and now she's famous because she gets into trouble. She is damaged. For a while, after her high hellion days, she couldn't get work because she couldn't get insured. They thought she would run off the sets to party. Her career suffered, and she started getting arrested (stealing, DUIs, car accidents, other things). But the arrests, even as they added up, were never going to be an emotional bottom for her, because she got just as much attention for them as she used to get for her film performances. She would get money offers for her jailhouse memoirs, crazy offers. So how would she ever stop the craziness when the response to her work and the response to her life had converged into one? Two kinds of performance, in film and in life, had melted into one.
