UPGRADE! James Franco has apparently traded in his pretty little Pretty Little Liars girlfriend, Ashley Benson, for – yes! yes! omg! – Emilia Clarke aka Daenerys Stormborn, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Shackles and Mother of Dragons! The most kick-ass chick in the entire fucking UNIVERSE. Page Six first reported that James and the Khaleesi were at the Frieze art fair in New York together on Saturday looking rather “friendly.” I LOVE THIS. It’s also a bit of an upgrade for HER. If you’ll recall, she was recently linked to Seth MacFarlane. Hmmm. Is it an upgrade? Or a lateral move? Seth IS pretty hot. Who would YOU choose? (via Lainey Gossip)
UPDATE: My co-editor just informed me that Emilia will be starring opposite Franco in his upcoming directorial event, an adaptation of Andre Dubus III’s 2008 novel The Garden of Last Days. Clarke will play the leading role of April.
