James Franco is squashing a slew of dating rumors and making sure Justin Bieber doesn't come after him!

The actor is speaking out in an article for the Huffington Post after reports swirled that he was linked to "Pretty Little Liars" star Ashley Benson, who he co-stars with in the upcoming "Spring Breakers," along with Selena Gomez, and the actor also addressed rumors of a romance with "The Twilight Saga's" Kristen Stewart.

"I also hear that I've been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson," he wrote. "Hot damn, am I a lucky guy.

"I wish I had actually gotten closer than the 13th row of the theater in Toronto where Kristen gave her 'On the Road' Q and A, but I didn't; not only did I not talk to her, I didn't even go to the SoHo house where I supposedly asked her out on a date," he wrote.

Adding, "As for Gomez and Benson, those are Bieber's girls and I wouldn't dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my a**. Yikes!"

Reports first surfaced of a romance between James, 34, and Ashley, 22, when they were reportedly spotted in Los Angeles at LA's Haunted Hayride earlier this month holding hands.
