Yep, This Sums Up Last Night’s Oscars Pretty Perfectly

As this was the "young and hip!" Academy Awards, host James Franco took advantage of that new fangled thingy called the internet and posted photos online as the event was happening. My personal fave of his photos was this one, featuring an insanely baked looking Franco, a deer-in-headlights Oprah, and a so-perky-we-could-slap-her…

Grading Oscar Hosts Anne Hathaway And James Franco

James Franco and Anne Hathaway are the youngest hosts of the Oscars, ever—it's a stat that's been repeated over and over again since it was first announced that the two would be taking on hosting duties. But, uh, how did they do? I'd give Anne an A- for being friendly and…

James Franco Takes A Cat Nap

James Franco has been studying hard for his Oscar-hosting gig on Sunday and the actor/student/writer/etc. deserves a break. Those kittens, on the other hand, are just being lazy. [Twitter]…

James Franco And Anne Hathway Feeling Grease Lightening For The Oscars?

T-minus three days until the Oscars, and people are starting to wonder—what do hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway have up their sleeves? Yesterday, James posted this 19-second clip on Twitter, which shows him and Anne recreating "You're The One That I Want" from "Grease." In it, James has his hair slicked…

Oscar Theory #9: Play A Real Person, Win A Statue

T-minus 18 days until the Oscars and, of course, we are all starting to place bets on who we think will walk away with little golden men this year. Luckily, the Academy has proven itself to be pretty darn predictable over the years. If you're America's Sweetheart, you'll probably win Best Actress. If…

James Franco To Play The Wizard. You Know, The Wizard Of Oz.

I have a theory that James Franco must have found a genie in a bottle at some point during his life, and wished to have 48 hours in a single day while the rest of us only get 24. Not only is the dude gearing up to host the Oscars, working on a…

Could James Franco Be The First Oscar Host To Also Win?

James Franco is getting way into the singing and dancing required for his Oscar co-hosting duties on February 27th. “This weekend we did shoot some of the pre-tape sections. Anne Hathaway and I did some dancing, some choreographed dancing, and I recorded some vocal tracks," he said. "I had a great coach.

James Franco Gets Trapped Under A Mini-Fridge!

Calamity struck at "The Daily Show" yesterday, when actor James Franco went looking for a Snickers bar ... and a mini-fridge fell on his arm, trapping him in the green room. Watch as James, much like his "127 Hours" character, attempts to cut his own arm off with a spork -- until…

James Franco And Kate Hudson To Do A Linda Lovelace Biopic? That Sounds Familiar.

"Armageddon" and "Deep Impact." "Capote" and "Infamous." It's a time honored Hollywood tradition for two movies to come out months apart about same exact topic. And it looks like it's about to happen again. Late yesterday, Deadline.com reported that James Franco and Kate Hudson are in talks for a biopic about Linda Lovelace…

James Franco Lets It Slip That He Has A Sex Tape

"I think if anybody who has made a home sex tape knows, what feels best doesn't always look best. I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, oh, that looks horrible... You have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just…

Surprise! James Franco Is Squeamish

"I admit that I get a little queasy, especially when it comes to blood around my arms. When I go to the doctor for a checkup and they draw blood, I admit, I'm not good at that at all. ... [But] when I watched that scene, I was fine." —James Franco explains that eve…

James Franco: “Maybe I’m Gay”

"“It’s funny because the way that kind of stuff is talked about on blogs is so black-and-white. It’s all cut-and-dry identity politics. ‘Is he straight or is he gay?’ Or, ‘This is your third gay movie — come out already!’ And all based on, gay or straight, based on the idea that your object…

James Franco To Direct Movies Of William Faulkner, Cormac McCarthy Books

Over the years, I have been accused of being an overachiever. But if I am, then James Franco is an over-over-over-over-over-overachiever. Unfulfilled with his life as a successful actor who's hosting the Academy Awards this year, James is also an artist (working on an exhibit inspired by "Three's Company"), author (who published Palo…

James Franco’s Grandma Has A (Belated) Christmas Message

James Franco spent the holiday weekend with his family, including his part-Jewish, Santa-loving Grandma, who had a message for those people who are scared of seeing "127 Hours."…

The Craziest Things To Come Out Of James Franco’s Mouth

I suspect that James Franco has a touch of the "Megan Fox"-ies. No, he doesn't suffer from aggressive sexyface (not with that hipster 'stache, anyway) or toe-thumbs; rather, James is king of the sound byte. James Franco-isms get so bizarre sometimes that I suspect they may not be true. The latest example: Whe…

James Franco Is In Love With Himself

Hey, but you knew that already! This video series made for the New York Times Magazine feature "Performers who defined cinema in 2010 [as they] capture classic screen types," but we call it a good excuse to watch James Franco make out with himself. We imagine he is playing the Lothario, no? Really, the…

James Franco Was A Cologne Thief In Middle School

"I guess my life of crime started by stealing cologne [in junior high]. We'd keep [cologne sample bottles] in the locker, in our gym locker at school and we'd sell some from the lockers ..." —James Franco from his interview on "Inside the Actor's Studio." I hope he was stealing/selling Drakkar Noir. That wa…
