James Franco hearts Lana Del Rey — seriously. The actor praises the singer to the high heavens in the latest issue of V Magazine and it sounds like dude may have a bit of a crush. “Lana lives in her art, and when she comes down to earth for interviews, it gets messy, because she isn’t made for this earth,” he said. “She is made to live in the world she creates. She is one who has been so disappointed by life, she had to create her own world. Just let her live in it.” Just let Lana live, y’all. Much like James, she is an artist/supernatural creature just blessing us from time to time with the privilege of her attention. How nice of her.
The actor loves Lana so much, in fact, that he wants to work on a film with her — and in no way is he doing it so he can get closer to her and perhaps kindle a flame deep within her that starts a long, torrid, beautiful love affair for the ages. Nope, not at all.
“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 L.A. 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.”
Umm…OK, then. We, uh, just wish these two the best.
