James Franco and Ashley Benson parody Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez with 'Boyfriend' video



James Franco and Ashley Benson, who insist they are not a couple despite this playful holiday pic and being seen out on what look like dates, are up to some antics with their parody of Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend."

Franco is Bieber, with his shaggy hair and side-turned hat, while Benson dons a dark wig to play her "Spring Breakers" co-star Selena Gomez, who is Bieber's on-again, off-again girlfriend (the latest reports are "off again").

It's an interesting choice of targets for a parody -- reportedly, Benson got her part in "Spring Breakers" because of Selena, which is where she met Franco. But Benson also reportedly broke up with Selena's friend Ryan to start dating Franco. Intrigue.

If you like Franco's send-up, be sure to check out his "Hills" parody with buddy Mila Kunis.
