“Anne can’t believe James has openly discussed the past and how they aren’t really on talking terms anymore,” a source says.
“She thinks he did it purely to drum up publicity for Spring Breakers," the source adds. "But, as far as she’s concerned, James pulled an unprofessional move by talking about her during the interview with Howard Stern."
Apparently, Anne wishes James — whom she co-hosted the 2011 Oscars with to disastrous results — would have just said "no comment."
“Stern did provoke Franco, but he didn’t have to respond," according to the insider. "And she couldn’t believe that he said he understands why people dislike her.
“Anne would never air her dirty laundry in public and is intensely private," the source continues. "It’s opened up old wounds, is totally unnecessary, and she’s fuming.”
It sounds like Anne and James won't be having a great and powerful friendship anytime soon.
