Rise of the Planet of the Apes actor James Franco has revealed how he and his long time girlfriend, Forgetting Sarah Marshall actress Ahna O’Reilly have decided to split up. The couple had been dating for five years but felt that the time had come to go their separate ways.
James explained, “We’d been living together in L.A. and then came to New York to go to school for two years. Then I signed up for more school at Yale. I think that was it for her.” The two insist that they will still remain friends and that there was no bitterness involved in the break up.
Ahna O’Reilly can next be seen on the big screen, when she appears alongside Emma Stone and Bryce Dallas Howard in the upcoming film The Help, which is due to be released on August 10. James Franco is next on the big screen when he appears in the much anticipated movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which is due out on August 5 in the US and August 12 in the UK.
