James Franco is a man of many titles. Teacher, poet, actor, artist, writer...just to name a few. One role Franco doesn't fill very often is that of "boyfriend." Despite what his oversharing Instagram may convey, James Franco is single because he's bashful.
"I've always been a little shy in meeting women," the actor tells Loaded magazine. "I've been getting better over the years at being able to speak more comfortably when I first meet someone."
Franco also finds that fame is an obstacle. He prefers to connect with someone the same way as the rest of us mortals. However, the pitfalls of being a celebrity often stand in his way. "Obviously, you have to be a little apprehensive on some occasions, but usually it's all very natural," he insists to Loaded.
Franco hasn't been linked with anyone since his five-year relationship with actress Ahna O'Reilly ended in 2011. He got into a bit of hot water in May when he tried to arrange a late-night rendezvous with a 17-year-old he met on Instagram. Other than that, we haven't heard much about James Franco's love life; now we know why.
