Kristen Stewart, James Franco Hookup in Toronto; Believe It?

Kristen Stewart may be crying crocodile tears when it comes to her ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson. She was reportedly blushing like a school girl while flirting with actor James Franco at the Toronto International Film Festival, according to one report. Believe it?

Stewart, 22, looked good on the festival red carpet in her stunning Zuhair Murad flowered dress, but she was definitely not the same person when she talked. Her speech was more animated and disjointed than ever, suggesting she was stressed.

But maybe she was just giddy over her new acquaintance, according to gossip site PerezHilton. It claimed Stewart and Franco, 34, were getting “flirty,” but the rumor sounds like tabloid fodder. The site has a habit of quoting “sources” as if they’re its own, when it’s really picking up a trashy tabloid report.

Hilton, real name Mario Lavendera, once even published what he claimed was a revealing upskirt photo of Miley Cyrus, while she was still a minor. But it was clear by the angle of her legs that the photo had been digitally altered. So the site’s credibility quotient is low.

“I watched [Kristen and James] chatting for about 20 minutes. Kristen was surrounded by bodyguards, but I could clearly see how excited they were, laughing and flirting,” the supposed source said. “James invited Kristen for a dinner that night, and someone [said] that James thinks Kristen is beautiful, and an amazing actress.”

There’s no question Stewart is a hot number, and who knows, maybe she’s easy, given that “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders was able to seduce her. Anything is possible, and that’s one problem with affairs. No one knows what to believe about her any more.

Her relationship with Pattinson appears to be all but over, judging by a steady stream of reports, and the fact that the two haven’t seen each other since the scandal broke. Kristen’s recent remarks that everything was fine between them, suggested resignation.

Stewart continues to wear Rob’s clothes, a pretty clear sign that she wants him to know she is thinking about him. Plus, Franco is 12 years older than her, and you think she had her fill of older men. Now Garrett Hedlund.

So who knows. Still it’s a better than even bet the story is sketchy. Let us know your thoughts and observations, especially if you where there!
