Hollywood Heights’ Brittany Underwood on James Franco: “He Just Looked You Right in The Eyes and Stared Into Your Soul”

That sound you hear is One Life to Live alum and Hollywood Heights leading lady Brittany Underwood swooning over the teen soap's multi-episode guest star James Franco. Underwood, who plays aspiring songbird Loren in the fun, 80-episode Nickelodeon serial, shared her recollection of her first Franco sighting with New Jersey's Star-Ledger. Said Underwood:

I met him in the dressing room," she said. "He just looked you right in the eyes and stared into your soul."

Sounds like Underwood is crushing on the eccentric A-lister, who has an affinity for serialized dramas produced by Jill Farren Phelps! Franco is appearing as Osborne, a movie mogul who will stop at nothing to get Loren's pop star crush, Eddie Duran (Cody Longo) to appear in his movie. Watch a clip of Franco on Hollywood Heights after the jump!
