James Franco 'dating actress'

James Franco is reportedly dating Ashley Benson.

The American actor and Pretty Little Liars star Ashley met while making the film Spring Breakers. The couple have been seen together in New York City on more than one occasion,

"They have been seeing each other for a little over a month," a source revealed to the New York Post. "But things are going well."

The 34-year-old Golden Globe Award winner and Ashley, 22, were spotted enjoying a romantic stroll around downtown New York and in Washington Square Park earlier this month. Last week, the couple were also seen walking hand-in-hand at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride.

In their movie Spring Breakers, Ashley, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Rachel Korine star as a quartet of best friends who have known each other since high school. The girls decide to go on an adventure for spring break and hit Florida to celebrate. During their trip, the pals get involved in a robbery to finance their escapade and wind up in jail. The foursome are bailed out by James' character Alien, a drug-dealer and gunrunner who seduces the girls into his world.

Ashley has spoken previously about her role is the risqué movie. The American actress thought the role was a way for her to shed her teen image.

"For Selena, Vanessa, and me, our audience is all in their teens or younger, so they're not even going to be able to see this when it comes out - it's not appropriate," she said.
