  • Rated X: Amanda Seyfried plays Linda Lovelace and James Franco plays Hugh Hefner in “Lovelace.”

Chemistry alert: Though they don’t play a couple in “Lovelace,” sparks were reportedly flying between Amanda Seyfried and James Franco as they shot a scene — and after the cameras stopped rolling, too.

“I thought it was for the movie,” an observer told the New York Daily News of the evident electricity between the pair, “but every time there was a break, they kept talking to each other and flirting back and forth.”

The source notes that while hair and makeup peons were primping the single stars between scenes, they kept talking as if no one else was there.

And allegedly, neither made an appearance at the catering truck during their dinner break. Granted, considering the source notes that James had just 12 hours to shoot, from 1 p.m. to 1 a.m., that might have been more about professional courtesy for the crew than passionate chemistry with Amanda.   

Well, they certainly would be a hot couple. However, we can’t help but be weirded out by the fact that in “Lovelace,” Amanda plays titular victimized porn star Linda Lovelace, and James portrays Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner. Sorry, but that just seems like a bad omen for the beginning of a relationship.

Selena: Wasted Time?

Selena Gomez says she’s happy her romance with Justin Bieber is out in the open. Even in spite of the Twitter death threats she got when they started dating? Now that’s love!

The “Wizards of Waverly Place” star told Cosmopolitan magazine about a past romance in which she had to sneak around — and how much that drained her energy.

“I was in a relationship previously where I had to hide everything and it wasn’t my choice,” Selena recalled. “I had to go through different exits and take separate cars and do the craziest things, and it just really wasn’t worth it. It was like a year of my life completely wasted.” (We’ve got a hunch she’s referring to Nick Jonas, especially considering the JoBros have been known to inspire bitterness in their exes — Taylor Swift, we’re looking at you!)

“I’m just like every 19-year-old girl,” explained the “Love You Like a Love Song” singer. “If you’re in love, you’re in love to the fullest, and you just want to go to the movies, hang out, and be as normal as possible. I’m fortunate that I’ve found someone who has that philosophy.”

Well, this all certainly explains why Selena is willing to expose herself to the wrath of armies of preteen Beliebers!

Dissonant Chord

A formerly cozy pair of young Hollywood up-and-comers have gone their separate ways. After dating for nine months, screen ingénue Emma Roberts and “Glee” actor Chord Overstreet are reportedly no longer an item.

“They’re both young kids; they had crushes on each other, but the relationship ran its course,” a source informed Us magazine. “She isn’t and wasn’t looking for a serious thing.”

Emma, the daughter of actor Eric Roberts and niece of megastar Julia Roberts, hit Sundance without Chord and is “back to having fun now,” says the insider.

Well, she’s 20 and he’s 22, so that sounds about right!
