Seyfried 'flirts with Franco'

Amanda Seyfried and James Franco have been spotted flirting on the set of their new movie.

Seyfried stars as real-life adult movie star Linda Lovelace in Lovelace, while Franco appears as Playboy owner Hugh Hefner. Although the Hollywood pair don't share any romantic scenes in the film, they were spotted looking very friendly on the set in Los Angeles last week.

"I thought it was for the movie," a source told New York Daily News, "but every time there was a break, they kept talking to each other and flirting back and forth."

The onlooker revealed that Seyfried and Franco seemed oblivious to the hair and make-up artists who were preparing them for their next scene. They continued to laugh and joke together during their 12-hour shoot.

Seyfried is currently single after splitting from real estate executive Andrew Joblon, while Franco is also believed to still be on the dating scene after confirming his split from actress Ahna O'Reilly in July last year.

Although the stars don't share a kiss in the movie, Hefner does flirt with Lovelace in one scene.

The characters appear on screen together when Lovelace's infamous porn movie Deep Throat is screened at the Playboy mansion.

In the scene, Hefner attends the screening with two blonde beauties on his arm and jokingly asks Lovelace's husband Chuck Traynor if he would consider swapping his wife for the women.

Chris Noth was also on the movie set last week. He plays one of the financiers of Deep Throat.

It was recently revealed that his former Sex and the City co-star Sarah Jessica Parker will replace Demi Moore in the film. Parker has landed the role of feminist journalist Gloria Steinem in the wake of Moore's recent personal troubles.

It is not yet known if Noth and Parker will share any scenes together.
