James Franco has apologized to Justin Bieber for mocking him. The 34-year-old OZ the Great and Powerful star, who posted a video on his WhoSay site earlier this month in which he pretended to be Justin while lip-syncing to his hit Boyfriend and frolicking with actress Pretty Little Liar‘s Ashley Benson, has revealed he was asked to remove the video but insisted he didn’t mean to “diss” the 18-year-old Canadian popstar.
James, who starred alongside Ashley and Justin’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez in the movie Spring Breakers, told EOnline.com at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, “I was asked to take it down by some people. Bieber didn’t contact me, but I don’t think he was too happy. James added, “I wasn’t trying to diss him.” A source close to Justin claims he has never seen the video.
James, who is rumoured to be dating his former co-star Ashley, previously posted a short video of himself miming along to Selena’s hit Love You Like A Love Song while they were filming their movie and she reacted positively to the spoof. Selena said at the time, “I loved it. It was so good.” Selena also recently covered Justin Timberlake’s song Cry Me A River. Watch it here.
