KStew's Next Beau: James Franco? He's determined to date her, for some reason By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Sep 11, 2012 10:52 AM CDT 8 comments Comments Actress Kristen Stewart is shown at the gala premiere for "On the Road" during the Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday Sept. 6, 2012 in Toronto. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP) (Newser) – Kristen Stewart not only made a new friend—she also scored a new male admirer at the Toronto Film Festival, if Radar's sources are to be believed. After bumping into each other and chatting for just 20 minutes, James Franco apparently became "smitten" with Stewart. Though "there was a lot of flirting and Kristen was overjoyed by the attention" from a "gushing" Franco, a source says, she apparently turned down Franco's request for a date. An undeterred Franco plans to keep pursuing her, and Stewart "is mulling over the idea," the source says. A good first step would probably be for her to stop wearing Robert Pattinson's clothes.
