James Franco wants everyone to know he's not that much of a ladies' man.

The actor, 34, took to the Huffington Post Wednesday to address reports that he's been dating some of young Hollywood's hottest ladies, including his Spring Breakers costar Ashley Benson.

A source tells PEOPLE that Franco and Benson have been "hanging out and having fun for a while."

Franco, however, is flip about their relationship, writing, "I ... hear that I've been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson. Hot damn, am I a lucky guy. I wish I had actually gotten closer than the 13th row of the theater in Toronto where Kristen gave her On the Road Q and A, but I didn't. Not only did I not talk to her, I didn't even go to SoHo House where I supposedly asked her out on a date."

The Academy Award-nominated star goes on, "As for Gomez and Benson, those are [Justin] Bieber's girls and I wouldn't dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my ass. Yikes!"

Meanwhile, Franco and Benson were recently spotted looking cozy at Halloween Horror Nights in L.A. where a source says, "They were tightly holding onto one another as they braved haunted mazes."
