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.”

The Social Network Facebook Film Hits London: Photos

THE Social Network – aka the Facebook Movie – arrived in London. We went to see Aaron Sorkin, Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake at a photocall for The Social Network at the Dorchester. As for the film, The Daily Beast’s Rebecca Davis O’Brien, says the film’s women who serve Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg are “doting groupies, sexed-up Asians, vengeful sluts, or dumpy, feminist killjoys.” But not media whores? Why does the new media hate women as much as the old media?
