“127 Hours” Leads To Faintings, Seizures, And Panic Attacks

You couldn’t pay me to go see director Danny Boyle’s new movie, “127 Hours,” which stars James Franco as a rock climber who gets trapped under a boulder and has to amputate his own arm. Apparently, the movie gets pretty gruesome—a Daily Mail reviewer called it “the most harrowing bone-breaking and amputation scene in the history of cinema.” Not that I can think of any others. But what’s truly crazy is the number of people who have passed out, vomited, or had seizures during preview screenings. Keep reading »

James Franco’s New Performance Art Dissects “Three’s Company”

I was just about to forgive James Franco for signing on to appear in 20 episodes of “General Hospital” and calling it “performance art,” when I caught wind of his latest project. In his downtime from being a beat poet (“Howl”) and cutting off his arm (“127 Hours”), he has been hard at work on an adaptation of the late-’70s television show “Three’s Company.” Keep reading »

James Franco Gets Dolled Up In Drag

Oh, that James Franco. Always up to something new and wacky! This time the performance artist/actor/all-around hottie is in drag on the cover of Candy magazine. The lovely photo was taken by Terry Richardson. What a “trans-formation,” indeed. He’s a little Angelica Houston, a little Jackie Beat. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Quotable: James Franco Would Tell You If He Was Gay

“Sure, I’d tell you if I was. I guess the reason I wouldn’t is because I’d be worried that it would hurt my career. I suppose that’s the reason one wouldn’t do that, right? But no, that wouldn’t be something that would deter me. I’m going to do projects that I want to do. Everyone thinks I’m a stoner, and some people think I’m gay because I’ve played these gay roles. That’s what people think, but it’s not true. I don’t smoke pot. I’m not gay…”

James Franco on rumors that he’s a gay stoner to The Advocate. Another interesting quote from the interview, after the jump … Keep reading »

Quotable: James Franco Loves Himself 4-5 Times A Day

“When I’m alone, I do masturbate a lot. I tend to have a four- or five-time a day [habit]. So, I probably would have if I was stuck under a rock.”

—James Franco tells Hollywood Reporter about his self-love habits. Why? He’s at the Telluride Film Festival promoting his new flick, “127 Hours,” about a hiker who saws his own hand off to get unstuck from a crevice. Apparently, before beginning the sawing, his character rubs one out. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

James Franco Sexes Up Scraggly Poet Allen Ginsberg In “Howl”

I cannot, cannot wait to see James Franco in “Howl.” He actually makes Beat poet Allen Ginsberg kinda hot, instead of hairy and creepy. It gives the famous lines from Ginsberg’s iconic poem, also named “Howl,” a whole new meaning: I saw the best minds of my generation, starving, hysterical, naked …

Oh, did I mention JON HAMM IS IN THIS MOVIE, TOO?! Yes, he is, looking all hot as a lawyer battling obscenity charges. You win, casting department! Unforch, we have to wait until “Howl” debuts September 24. Keep reading »

Quotable: James Franco Thinks Julia Roberts Is Shy In The Sack

“She is very, very outgoing. But I think she’ll also admit pretty freely that she doesn’t love to do love scenes and actually was charmingly shy when we had to do them.”

James Franco on filming sex scenes with Julia Roberts for “Eat, Pray, Love.” Either she’s shy or she isn’t into James. Methinks shy. [The Huffington Post] Keep reading »

James Franco French Kisses A Dude On “SNL”


If you watched James Franco hosting “SNL” this weekend, then you might have noticed a little bit of a theme … homosexuality. Almost every skit contained some sort of gay reference. Hmmm … let’s see: He played Latin singing star Rico Garlanda, danced in footsie pajamas, portrayed James Dean exchanging secret Santa gifts with Liberace and Vincent Price, and finally engaged in multiple, incestuous man-on-man kisses (with tongue). Interesting. He said in his opening monologue that every move in his career is calculated. What shall we, your adoring audience, take this to mean, Mr. Franco? Is pretending to be gay part of your “performance art”? Or could this just be a ploy to perpetuate rumors that you’re gay and confuse your fans? Stay tuned to the Franco gallery for the next clue.

Frisky Rant: James Franco Thinks He’s Matthew Barney

We were all scratching our heads in confusion when James Franco announced that he would be appearing on the soap opera “General Hospital.” But would I have called his decision performance art? Not so much. According to James, however, that’s exactly what it is. “I finally took the plunge and experimented with [performance art] myself when I signed on to appear on 20 episodes of ‘General Hospital’ as the bad-boy artist ‘Franco, just Franco,’” he says about his visionary concept in an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal this weekend. So his film career isn’t in trouble, OK? In addition to the 20 episodes on the show, there is a piece de resistance to Franco’s “General Hospital” performance—he will film a final scene in a museum. Edgy. But seriously … why? Keep reading »
