5 Times James Franco Was The Oddest Celebrity Ever
A short recap of some of Franco’s stranger stunts…
James Franco and Seth Rogen nearly started a war with their latest film, The Interview. Now, two months after Sony-gate, it's coming out.
To celebrate and commemorate the WTF brain of James Franco, Timehop back to his exhibition of fat animal paintings, or the time he wrote a 'fictional' story about Lindsay Lohan.
The time he wrote a thinly disguised ‘short story’ about Lindsay Lohan trying to sleep with him
There have been loads of times where Franco’s hinted that he’s seen LiLo starkers. He cast her scantily clad in an R.E.M. music video and claims in This Is The End that he’s slept with her.
In a short story penned for VICE, Franco wrote about a troubled “Hollywood girl,” who tries to break into his Chateau Marmont hotel room. It's one of the most self-indulgent pieces of fiction EVER.
It’s supposed to be a made up story, but...
“I ran my fingers through her hair and thought about this girl sleeping on my chest, our fictional Hollywood girl, Lindsay. What will she do?”
Probably not made up.
Anything he does involving Seth Rogen
Though the pair are BFFs, there's a next level element of intimacy between Rogen and Franco, displayed clearly in this. A painting of Seth Rogen, naked.

The time he turned his whole life into performance art
According to Danny Boyle, who directed him in 127 Hours, Franco has turned his celebrity status into a platform for performance, projecting a version of himself onto different situations.
"While we were shooting the film, he would sometimes ask me, 'What do you want him to do?' I would say, 'What do you mean?' He would say, 'What do you want from him in this scene?' You mean your character? 'No, no. Franco. What do you want from Franco?' He was talking about himself in the third person."
The time he painted a deer orgy and exhibited it
You read that correctly.
James Franco is to arts what Kanye West is to fashion. The man can't stop working. His art exhibition, entitled Fat Squirrel, featured paintings of obese animals, self-portraits, and deers having a threesome.
