The 127 Hours actor responds to claims that he was romantically involved with the 'Boyfriend' star's girlfriend.

James Franco has responded to recent claims that he was getting close to Selena Gomez on the set of new film Spring Breakers stating that he would never "tangle" with Justin Bieber's girlfriend.

The Hollywood star wrote about the claims in a blog on the Huffington Post after it emerged the 'As Long As You Love Me' star was upset with the actor.

"I also hear that I've been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson, he wrote. "Hot damn, am I a lucky guy."

He continued: "As for Gomez and Benson, those are Bieber's girls and I wouldn't dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my ass. Yikes!

Justin also is set to open up on his relationship with Selena in an upcoming edition of Oprah Winfrey's Next Chapter where he denies that he's ever "ashamed" of the actress.

I never make [Selena] separate from me because I don't want her to ever feel like I'm ashamed of her," he admitted. "Because I feel like a lot of guys do that, especially in the business."

Meanwhile, Justin is currently on his 'Believe' world tour and is expected to make a dive into the acting world with his planned basketball movie alongside Mark Wahlberg.
