Is James Franco planning to propose to new girlfriend Emilia Clarke?

James Franco

Somehow (and I should be thankful for this omission), I missed these atrocious photos of James Franco wearing a douche hat and douche glasses at Cannes. He always looks so smarmy and self-congratulatory, right? Actually, he looks like an extra from “Dallas.” Ugh, Franco.

There’s some actual gossip at work here though. James Franco has a new girlfriend, who just happens to be Emilia Clarke of “Game of Thrones.” She’s a gorgeous girl even if she looks totally different in real life than she does on the show. I don’t know much about Emilia except that she also starred within Breakfast at Tiffany’s on Broadway, which (sadly) is closed early at the end of April. According to Page Six, James and Emilia have been dating since early May, and it seems that Franco (if this new Star story is true) is completely head over heels for her. He’s even allegedly thinking about marriage already. Okay, this story sounds like crap from a million miles away because Franco can only be in love with Franco, right?

James Franco, the actor with a million jobs, just added another item to his to-do list — plan a proposal for Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke! The This Is the End star, 35, and the British actress, 26, have been dating only a few weeks, but friends say he has finally met the woman of his dreams. “James is in love,” a source tells Star. “He says Emilia is the most amazing woman he’s ever met, and he wants to get hitched as soon as possible. He’s planning a perfect proposal.” The pair were even seen flaunting their love at an art fair on May 11 in New York City — where an eyewitness says the two were smitten. “James and Emilia were holding hands,” says the spy. “He kept kissing and hugging her. It was as if they’d known each other for years.”

Can you imagine what it would be like if James Franco actually married someone besides himself? If you think that Justin Timberlake’s egocentric wedding album was hilarious, you ain’t seen nothing yet. The Franco nuptuals would be smug, douchey, and the ultimate meta experience. James Franco would not only be getting married, but James Franco would also give away James Franco, and James Franco would officiate the wedding as well. Then James Franco would DJ the reception as James Franco catered the event and James Franco tore up the dance floor. Bride? Who needs a bride. This would be AAART, bitches.

    Nooooooo Khaleesi!!!!!!!!

    • Liv says:

      Are they even a couple? I don’t believe it until I get to see photos of them.

  2. Samigirl says:

    Don’t do it, Khaleesi!!

  3. allons-y alonso says:

    Jesus Christ! Where is Jorha when you need him!

    • Chrissy says:

      HAHA. It was Daario Naharis and now James Franco. Jorah is probably crying in the corner, mending his broken heart. Poor Jorah.

      • Erinn says:

        And didn’t she go out to dinner with Seth MacFarlane?

      • Myrto says:

        Bwah! That’s all I keep saying everytime I watch GoT and Jorah looks crushed: “Poor Jorah”.
        I’m totally judging Emilia for dating all those douches: Mc Farlane, Franco. Just ugh. What can she possibly see in them?

  4. Maritza says:

    She is gorgeous, way too good for him, she deserves better.

  5. T.Fanty says:

    He won’t get married. He’s too ‘avant garde’ for that. Marriage is for followers, and he’s an innovator (or something).

    • Kiddo says:


    • Liv says:

      True. He’s such an idiot!

    • Miss M says:

      @T.Fanty: Hahahaha. I agree with what you said. But as a Franco apologist, I say this whole post is really underestimating him… It makes him sound dumb like Kellan Lutz and dumb he is not. Pretentious? yes, he is! lol

  6. marie says:

    she must not possess a douche-meter, she’s too good for him.

    • Liv says:

      She dated MacFarlane before, girl definitely doesn’t have a douche radar…

    • Miss M says:

      I think from SM to James is an upgrade. She may have a douche radar and even separates good douches versus bad douches…

    • minime says:

      exactly my first thought…she is so gorgeous and she always comes across as such a nice person, couldn’t she date someone that has not a big red “douche” arrow blinking above his head?

  7. Dorothy#1 says:

    I don’t know, I kinda like it. 🙂

  8. Maria says:

    wasnt she dating Seth MacDouche? well, she seems to have a type. maybe we should introduce john mayer to her.

    • Mam says:


    • MistyNinja says:

      Nooooooo. I hope you know that when john mayer googles his name, like he does every night, he is going to see your comment and go find her. And if he gets this beautiful Khaleesi we will never hear the end of it. There will be songs about dragons and Mayer’s ego will become larger than ever. Larger enough to destroy the Earth.

  9. Eileen says:

    NOT true anyway,- pff

  10. OhMyMy says:

    Noooo Dragon Mom!!! Run far, run fast!!

  11. Shelley says:

    how awesome is she really if she finds herself dating James???

  12. me says:

    Did anyone read the rolling stones article with him, Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill?? He literally walks into the interview and throws down books and announces he goes to Yale. D-bag. The only thing more cringe worthy was Jonah Hill’s pretentiousness.

    • Kate says:

      Yeah, I was definitely rolling my eyes at that, but he at least seemed like a good sport (“Oh planes, no one can hear you fart.”). Jonah Hill was SUCH a jerk, it make me uncomfortable. Franco is definitely not a normal dude (and not as cool as Rogen or McBride), but I feel like I could tolerate him. Jonah, though. I hope that interview blows up in his face.

  13. Micki says:

    I don’t think he’s a type to propose after some weeks of holding hands and kissing.
    Nice try Bedhead but I don’t rememeber him following the “Kellan Lutz” way of talking.Yet.

  14. Kate says:

    I can’t hate him. Saul Silver from “Pineapple Express” is one of my favorite characters. Just picturing him sitting on a swing, eating a burger and weeping makes me laugh.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      +1. I’m not gonna make excuses for his behavior or bother defending him, but I still like him.

      Would love to fire up a bong with him, bet I would laugh my ass off.

    • Beatriz says:

      Yasss!! That movie always makes me laugh like and idiot 😀

  15. mom2two says:

    I really doubt this is true. Really doubt it.

  16. Andrea says:

    Run Khaleesi! Run far away! Find your sun and stars elsewhere!

  17. Jenna says:

    Don’t do it, Dany!!! Get the dragons on him instead!

  18. Tessa says:

    I doubt they’re even dating. Where is this even coming from? A PR office to stir up attention for both of them? Make him seem straight or less asexual before This is the End comes out, and drum up publicity around her before the GOT finale this week? Seems odd. No one has even seen them together.

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      He is directing her in one of his movies together with himself, that´s how they met.

  19. Ashling says:

    James is always entertaining.

  20. kim says:

    Staged couple. They’re not dating. PR for his new movie and for her career. Nothing more. She should have been paired with someone less doofy looking though.

  21. Daisy says:

    Khaleesi knows better. I won’t believe it!

  22. mia girl says:

    Bedhead – your description of a Franco wedding is hilariously perfect.

  23. lisa says:

    i’d rather be with seth mcfarlane and that says quite a bit

  24. Gilmore says:

    Is it weird that I don’t get the Franco hate? I don’t know, he may talk about his knowledge and art too much, but it’s not that bad. Everyone acts like he’s on Lohan level of narcissism and delusion on a daily basis.

  25. OriginalNose says:

    Step-father of Dragonssss!!!!

    yep, cracked myself right up there.

  26. NeoCleo says:

    “Can you imagine what it would be like if James Franco actually married someone besides himself?”

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ this! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Nearly spit coffee on my display.

  27. Bam Bam says:

    Seems like her career is poised to take off, where his is declining, could be happening to get some attention for him and regain some popularity.

  28. Claudia says:

    His hat/sunglasses are not douchey! I actually really like them, minus the color of the hat. I like Franco. He may be all levels of pretentious, but he has the education and acting ability to back it up.

  29. Diana says:

    She has tragic taste in men.

  30. Kat says:

    From Seth McFarlane to Franco McDouche? Holy Downgrade, Khaleesi!

  31. Ag says:

    He always looks greasy. And gross. Not sure why someone would be into dating him. Meh.

  32. gefeylich says:

    Well, better Franco than that utter douche Seth MacFarlane. Franco may be, um, somewhat self-aggrandizing, but he’s good-looking in the right light and Clarke could do a lot worse (and with MacFarlane, HAS).
