James Franco On Cloud 17: Conspiracy Theories And 1970s-Style Honest-To-Goodness Perviness For Teenage Girl

Screen shot 2014-04-04 at 17.23.55


AS you’re probably aware, arch-hipster James Franco has been rumbled online, trying to tap off with a 17 year old Scottish girl. A variety of messages were batted back and forth, with Franco being a little persistent in trying to get his end away.

Now, there’s something of a conspiracy theory, which sees some people saying that this is a sly publicity stunt for his new film – Palo Alto – where plays a football coach who seduces his 14-year-old baby sitter.

Either way, something very interesting and troubling happened in the immediate fallout – the press, initially, were rather amused by it. The tone was “Whoopsie! Caught with your pants down! Arf!”

James Franco and Little Oz Franco are working the room

JAMES Franco and his Oz doll are on the Walk of Fame, reading books and being at large. Franco is the likeable weed dealer in Pineapple Expres, Sean Penn’s lover in Milk, himself playing others in Erased James Franco, ‘Franco’ in General Hospital, and in the stage show Masculinity and Me, reportedly, he peppered his monologues with footage of a urinating penis and a defecating anus.

In one photograph of James and his new pal, the near-catatonic Franco clutches Little Franco like his onetime Oscar co-host Anne Hathaway holds her Oscar. Tightly. Never letting go.

At last they’re having fun. An they’re not creepy, like Karl and his pocket love toy:

Amanda Seyfried reveals all as Lovelace (photos)

THE role of Linda Lovelace, the starring role in new biopic Lovelace, was initially supposed to go to Lindsay Lohan, but alas, she has all those ‘legal woes’ shall we say? As such, she was pulled from the project, opening the door for Amanda Seyfried.

And now, we’ve all got the chance to look at the actress in a state of undress as she plays the centre of everyone’s attention from one of the most notorious films ever made – Deep Throat. Appearing in little more than a bright red bra, we have to assume that she’ll be showing a lot more in Lovelace. Emotionally we mean. Of course we mean that. It isn’t our fault you’ve got a dirty mind.

127 Hours Trailer: James Franco Is Cut And Alone With His Little Franco

JAMES Franco is the star of 127 Hours, the Hollywood-treated story of Aron Ralston, the climber who severed his own arm to escape being wedged in a mountain.

Franco is just about the most likable leading man right now. In the film, a bored and stressed Ralston masturbates. As is the way with all trite film interviews, the hack wonders how alike the star is to the character he plays. Franco amuses himself:

So, when I’m alone, I do masturbate a lot. I don’t know why. It’s like you have those days where it’s just like, I have a ton of writing to do, or a ton of reading to do, and you’re just like, OK, I’m going to be on the couch all day or in bed all day just doing that… I tend to have a four- or five-time day. So, I probably would have if I was stuck under a rock.”
