James Franco



Selfie-lover James Franco is charming and talented. He first gained popularity in TV's General Hospital and  Freaks and Geeks. He acquired many nominations and awards for his amazing performances in TNT's James Dean and the movie 127 Hours. Other Franco movies include Spider-man, City by the Sea, Oz the Great and Powerful, and the hilarious This Is The End. James received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last year, and he will be presenting his latest film, The Sound and the Fury, at the Venice Film Festival.

What is James Franco's new favorite book?

Yesterday he tweeted and posted on Instagram, "My new Favorite book: The Long Home by William Gay. Check out the piece on VICE: http://www.vice.com/read/i-love-william-gays-the-long-home-851."

From Amazon.com blurb: Set in rural Tennessee in the 1940s, 'The Long Home' will bring to mind once again the greatest Southern novelists and will haunt the reader with its sense of solitude , longing, and the deliverance that is always just out of reach.

There was some movie I saw where they threw in a bit about a video that went viral of James Franco trying to fit into skinny jeans.

It was hysterical.

As someone who mas spent a lifetime mocking everything, including myself, I enjoy when celebrities can poke fun at themselves (or allow it to be done).

SO many of them take themselves far too seriously, forgetting how quickly that fifteen minutes passes for most.
