Apparently, what happens on the set of Spring Breakers doesn’t stay secret for very long.

James Franco, 34, is reportedly dating his pretty little co-star, Ashley Benson, 22, reports E! News. The Oscar-nominated actor and the Pretty Little Liars star met on the set of their indie film, Spring Breakers. The two share more than a few compromising scenes in the sexy, drug-fueled flick.

The two were spotted together in New York’s Washington Square Park and, days later, holding hands at Los Angeles’ Haunted Hayride, according to the New York Post.

Not everyone may be happy about the relationship. Benson’s behind-the-scenes romance with Franco may have caused a rift with her BFF and co-star, Selena Gomez.

Before dating Franco, the TV starlet was romantically linked to Ryan Good, a good friend of Gomez beau Justin Bieber.

When Emma Roberts reportedly dropped out of Spring Breakers because she didn’t want to gain weight, the former Disney star was reportedly influential in getting her BFF Benson cast in the part, according to Radar Online.

Now it looks like the Pretty Little Liar may have burned a bridge with Gomez after dumping Good for Franco.

Directed by provocateur Harmony Korine, Spring Breakers hits theaters in 2013.
