The actor took to his Instagram to share his affections for the singer.
He posted a photo of her music video with the caption, "HAPPY BDAY LANA DEL REY!! I'm OBSESSED with the RIDE video! @lanadelrey".
On Friday, James posted a snap of the two of them together, "LANA LANA LANA (My new friend)".
Now we all know how much Franco loves an all-caps but if we were Lana we'd tread carefully.
Since then he's posted many a snap of the two of them together, as well as some more of him just 'fangirling' out at her picture.
For instance, he just shared a picture of Lana on the cover of Rolling Stone.
We all know what happened the last time James Franco used social media to speak to a lady, sorry, girl.
Lana Del Rey has recently broken up with her boyfriend but was since spotted with Italian director, Francesco Carrozzini.
She told 20 Minuten, "We are currently not together. He is a wonderful person. But there are some things with which he has to deal.
I will not explain it in detail. This was hard on our relationship, I no longer felt free. We'll see how it goes."
Sounds like she's got a thing for arty, tortured types so this could be a match made in heaven...then again, maybe he's just embarrassing himself.
