Now that Kristen Stewart is back in the public eye after weathering the storm of her cheating scandal like a good hermit, the Twilight star is already the subject of fresh rumours about her love life.
James Franco is reportedly "smitten" with the 22-year-old, seen chatting with her flirtatiously at the Toronto Film Festival last week. According to a Radar Online source, the pair had a 20-minute natter at the Intercontinental Hotel.
"There was a lot of flirting, and Kristen was overjoyed by the attention she was getting from James, who was gushing over her, saying what a great actress he thinks she is and was full of praise for her latest movie, On the Road," the source claimed.
"She seemed at ease in his company, and he was certainly making her laugh. She was wearing a huge grin on her face."
Kristen smiling is an event in and of itself, but James apparently asking her out on a date is the icing on the cake.
"At the end of their chance meeting, James took Kristen's number and asked her out for dinner," the source said.
"Kristen initially said no, but is mulling over the idea. She knows she has to move on now following her break-up with Rob."
