James Franco Splits From His Long Term GirlfriendThank you, Madame Tussau
The 127 Hours actor has confirmed that his five-year romance with Ahna O’Reilly has ended.
The actor said that he is busy with his other education commitments, but he did not reveal when they ended their relationship.
James, who has been studying at Yale University, New York University, Warren Wilson College in North Carolina, Brooklyn College and Columbia University, told the new issue of Playboy magazine, “It’s over. That lasted about four or five years. We’d been living together in Los Angeles and then came to New York to go to school for two years. Then I signed up for more school at Yale. I think that was it for her.”
James admits he hasn’t had much luck with women, particularly when he was at school because he was so “shy and awkward”.
Asked when he lost his virginity, he said, “In high school with my girlfriend. Her name was Jasmine. She kind of got over me, but we got back together at the beginning of junior year and dated for two years. She was my first real relationship.”
“I think girls liked me, but I was awkward, shy and emotionally immature, so I didn’t have girlfriends. I had short-term relationships and always got dumped, I think because I was too slow for them,” he added.
