Benson must have realized her mistake in posting the photo, because the actress quickly took it down!

Benson and Franco will star alongside each other in the upcoming film, "Spring Breakers." The movie is about four college girls "who land in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation." The girls are bailed out by a drug dealer (Franco), who wants them to "do some dirty work." reported in November that Benson, 22, was "smitten" with Franco, and got together with him after she split from her beau Ryan Good. Franco, 34, denied the romance rumors, writing in a blog post for the Huffington Post that Benson and co-star Selena Gomez are "Bieber's girls and I wouldn't dare tangle with the Biebs...I heard he wants to kick my a**. Yikes!
