Lana Del Rey is being coveted by James Franco. At least, that’s the impression many across the internet have gotten after comments made by The Interview star in V Magazine earlier this month. There’s just one problem — Lana is already taken!
It started last week when Franco took to V to profess his professional interest in Del Rey.
“She has this idea for a film,” James wrote in an essay, “I want to do it because it’s a little like ‘Sunset Boulevard.'”
Franco then continued in detail about the movie’s plot conceived by Lana herself.
“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,” Franco wrote, leading many to believe there was a connection there.
But according to the Daily Mail, Lana has been seen driving around on a motorcycle with her real boyfriend, Francesco Carrozzini, just this past weekend.
“The 29-year-old singer and her 32-year-old beau were seen taking advantage of sunny weather by going for a ride together. Lana sported an all-denim ensemble as she rode around Malibu, California on the back of her boyfriend’s motorcycle,” the site detailed.
Francesco is an Italian-born photographer and Emmy nominated director for his series of day time shorts called The New York Times Screen Tests. Carrozzini and Lana have been “frequently spotted getting cozy since the two were first linked back in June,” according to the site.
So while many bloggers, such as those from Vulture, may be pining for the pair to get together, such a union doesn’t quite seem in the cards. Another union that may never come to pass either, is Lana Del Rey and the Oscars. As reported by Inquisitr, the Ultraviolence singer has been snubbed for the second year in a row.
In fact, last year, Del Rey was completely left off the ballot under mysterious circumstances, prompting many to wonder if there was a smear campaign at work. Deadline reported that an anonymous envelope was mailed to members of the Academy music selection committee with a false printout that made it look like Variety had sent it. The article contained bogus facts regarding the the Grammy-nominated Lana Del Rey song “Young And Beautiful,” which led to it being disqualified from Best Song category. It asserted that since The Great Gatsby changed it’s release date, the song was no longer eligible — a claim later proven untrue.
At least Lana has her men… er man to provide her comfort, even if the Academy won’t.
