Two Reasons To Celebrate: It's The Weekend And James Franco Is Single!

James FrancoJames Franco is back on the market, ladies. That's right, Hollywood's ultimate Renaissance Man admits in the new issue of Playboy (and found its way on The Huffington Post) that he's single and ready to mingle.

"It's over," Franco says of his now defunct five-year relationship with Ahna O'Reily. "We'd been living together in L.A. and then came to New York to go school for two years. Then I signed up for more school at Yale. I think that was it for her."

Considering how much time he spends on so many other projects (school, acting, being an artist, being an author, whatever else he wants to be this week), it's pretty unsurprising that he couldn't also focus on his former lady love. Now, while the quote doesn't lead us to believe he needs a shoulder to cry on, we're more than happy to offer James ours, as well as our support.

But, if he stays as busy as he's known to do, his broken heart will probably feel better soon. Next month, "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" hits theaters and he's got a slew of other projects on his docket like the already banked "Maladies," "The Stare," "Sal," as well as the still needs to make 'em "Cherry," "Oz: The Great and Powerful," and "The Iceman."

Like, we said though, James you can call us anytime if you need to talk. Until then, we have our Japanese love pillows to keep us company.
