James Franco claims to have married singer Lana Del Rey only to later clarify that he was simply being funny
James Franco's crush on Lana Del Rey (LDR) is so intense it threatens to consume his deeply poetic soul, but sadly his feelings aren't reciprocated.

But then the Spring Break star won't give up either! These days, when he's not filling notebooks with tortured free verse about his love for Lana, James employs a method utilised by friend-zoned dudes for generations. He posts constant photos of the two of them.
The only problem is Lana's not taking the bait and she's still dating photographer Francesco Carrozzini.
So what did Franco do? He upped the ante by forcing LDR to imagine a world in which he and Lana are not only dating, but actively making artsy babies who pop out with faces full of stubble and cigs hanging from their mouths.
Franco posted the above photo to Instagram yesterday with the caption reading, "Oh snap. We got married. JUST KIDDING!!" Funny.
