One look at Kristen Stewart in her stunning hair and makeup, white Balenciaga button-down and harem pants at last night’s screening of On the Road in New York, and we wonder what guy in his right mind hasn’t had thoughts of swooping in on the actress in an attempt to be her rebound. We still don’t know if she and Robert Pattinson have actually broken off their relationship — and we’re not making any pronouncements on that front. We’re just saying that, according to at least one report, there are guys possibly making a move to be her rebound. Guys like James Franco. Maybe.
We know Franco is a huge admirer of Stewart, based on the effusive Snow White and the Huntsman review he wrote for the Huffington Post back in June. Now Radar Online is reporting that his admiration went a little further when the two met in Toronto over the weekend. A source said they talked for 20 minutes, during which James praised Kristen’s work in On the Road.
“She seemed at ease in his company, and he was certainly making her laugh,” the source said. “She was wearing a huge grin on her face. At the end of their chance meeting, James took Kristen’s number and asked her out for dinner. Kristen initially said no, but is mulling over the idea. She knows she has to move on now following her break up with Rob.”
All of this sounds like a huge leap to conclusions based on observing someone else’s conversation. We’re sure we’d be grinning too, if the ever-charming and weird James Franco started complimenting us. That doesn’t automatically mean we’d be planning our future romance together. Anyway, between this meeting and the stories of Kristen’s encounters with Emma Watson and Jennifer Lawrence, it sounds like she was the most popular girl in Toronto last weekend!
