What if Rihanna‘s filthy, sexy “We Found Love” video hadn’t featured a bleached-blond Chris Brown look-alike? What if Rihanna had instead been crying/hooking up in a filthy bathtub with one Mr. James Franco? According to the Spring Breakers actor, he was actually RiRi’s first choice in love interests. “She actually asked me to be in that video, the one with the relationship that gets crazy,” Franco told MTV Canada. “I couldn’t do it. But, I guess, I hope that that means there’s mutual love between us.” And we could have seen that mutual love on-screen? Come on, you two!
Franco’s story kind of contradicts reports that Rihanna “hand picked” model Dudley O’Shaughnessy to play her breakdown boyfriend, a casting choice that then sparked rumors the video mirrored her relationship with ex Brown. How we wish Franco would have been free! Luckily there’s still a chance they might lock lips onscreen in the upcoming movie The Apocalypse. “I think she’s gonna be in the new movie that I’m doing, Seth Rogen‘s directorial debut,” Franco claims. “I think she has a little part in that.” No, James Franco does not explicitly say they’ll be kissing in The Apocalypse. Please let us enjoy our filthy, sexy fantasies for as long as we possibly can! We don’t come to your work and point holes in your logic, ruining your dreams, now do we?
