CLAIM: Kristen Stewart “Caught Flirting” With James Franco at Toronto Film Festival

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes


Kristen Stewart was “caught flirting with James Franco during the Toronto Film Festival,” reports HollywoodLife, which has had its fair share of made-up and manufactured tales about the actress.

A so-called “source” tells the webloid, “I watched [Kristen and James] chatting for about 20 minutes. Kristen was surrounded by bodyguards, but I could clearly see how excited they were, laughing and flirting. James invited Kristen for a dinner that night, and someone [said] that James thinks Kristen is beautiful, and an amazing actress.”

Before we get to the bust, let’s examine HollywoodLife’s claims. The oft-inaccurate blog has a “source” who notes Stewart was surrounded by bodyguards, and yet could see “James invited Kristen for a dinner”? If HollywoodLife’s “source” was so close to read their lips, why not snap a photo of the two together?

Anyway, the site quotes “another source” saying, “Kristen and James Franco chatted for like 10 minutes in a corner [at Toronto’s Soho House], looking flirty. Kristen went to a mysterious third floor and James followed her.” Interesting. So, when exactly did this alleged “flirting” happen? HollywoodLife never mentions when. Want to know why? Because it NEVER happened. A source close to Stewart tells Gossip Cop that the HollywoodLies, er, HollywoodLife story is “bulls**t,” noting importantly that the actress and Franco “never saw each other.” Whoops.
