Petition to know the true nature of James Franco and Lana Del Rey's relationship!!

We all know how curiously aloof and unsettling James Franco is as a person. He is an actor, writer, director, professor, astronaut, lunch lady, and (most recently) devoted fan of Lana Del Rey.

Speaking to V Magazine, Franco was quoted as saying Lana Del Rey "isn’t made for this earth." Well, she's on it now so she better get used to it.

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 LA. 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.

James Franco apparently

Aside from James Franco's boring as hell ideas for films, it's kind of exciting that the two may be working with one another. In the past Franco has expressed a desire to "make love" to Lana Del Rey's music so a film collaboration would likely be the next best thing.

Lana Del Rey is working on her fourth studio album entitled Honeymoon, expected out this year.
