Ashley Benson claims she is scared of relationships because they bring too much pressure despite rumours she is dating James Franco
The ‘Spring Breakers’ actress – who is rumoured to be dating her co-star James Franco – has finally confirmed she split from her boyfriend of one year Ryan Good late last year because she felt under too much pressure for the relationship to work out.
The 23-year-old actress told the April issue of Seventeen magazine: “I’ve always been in relationships. And I knew I needed to learn to be comfortable alone.
“Anytime you go through a breakup, it’s rough. Ryan and I are still close, but I’m too young to be in a serious relationship. Work is my boyfriend!”
But the actress, who has yet to comment on rumours she is dating James, 34, also revealed she isn’t opposed to falling in love again.
She said: “If it happens, it happens. I’m 23 — I could have a boyfriend tomorrow. But relationships are scary, because once you’re in one, you have to face the idea of breaking up or staying together forever. It’s scary.”
Ashley and Ryan split last October after she became close to James on the set of their new indie movie, which also stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens.
A source previously said: “Once the shoot wrapped, Ashley told Ryan they needed to ‘slow down’ and then booked a flight to New York City to go see James’ art gallery showing.”
