We don’t know what to make of this. Lindsay Lohan recently told the New York Post that she would love to be in the upcoming Wizard Of Oz prequel called Oz: The Great And Powerful, but only because it would allow her to work with James Franco who, she claims, is her best friend. “I think the only role I could play is Glinda,” Lohan told Page Six. “I’ll only do the movie if I can work with [James Franco]. We’re like best friends. We’re hanging out later.” What??? Forget the part about Lohan playing the saintly Good Witch Of The North for a second and focus on the Franco.
We know that the pair posed recently for a book that photographer Terry Richardson is working on (a book that features Lohan reportedly posing nude), but we didn’t realize their friendship had blossomed into bestie territory. Look, both celebrities are fascinating in their own ways, but given their current Hollywood statures (Franco being one of the most employable actors at the moment, Lohan being the opposite of that), we’re a bit surprised. Of course it may just one more super-meta Franco stunts, like his stint on General Hospital, where he’s just doing it to mess with people. Unless…They really are just best friends. In which case, we’re at a total loss.
