James Franco Gossip
James Franco gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
James Franco wrote an article for The Daily Beast about his favourite subject: James Franco. The purpose of the piece, I think, is to educate us on how he chooses his roles now, reflecting on past experiences to explain how an important Artist, THIS important Artist, decides between all the opportunities presented to him, so as to fully engage his creativity.

Here’s the thing about how “arty” James Franco has become: even when he’s just messing around, you wonder if he’s actually just messing around, or whether or not, in a month or so, suddenly what was just a spell of silliness will become an installation somewhere, or an experimental album meant to challenge the boundaries of creative expression beyond the artist’s public consciousness, which is a series of words that makes no sense because, well, that sounds about right.
Franco keeps posting videos of himself singing along to pop songs. The latest is Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe. They’re actually kinda cute...if goofin’ is all it is. I want to believe that’s all it is. But somehow James Franco made everything have to mean something. And now it’s impossible to enjoy any of it without considering what it might mean. Or is the meta-ness of that is where he’d say the Art is?
Yours in gossip,
Can you tell? I LOVE Gangster Franco so f-cking much.And if I’m feeling this way, I can’t even imagine how hard Michael K over at Dlisted must be and how creatively he’ll describe the sensation. Am waiting impatiently for that post up on his site. In the meantime, here’s Gangster Franco doing everything but making it rain on the set of Spring Breakers yesterday. Full Story
I love Gangster Franco. I just wish Gangster Franco had happened before JLo decided to get with her backup dancer. Then again, James Franco actually has a career of his own. That would probably turn her off. Gangster Franco’s stylings however, well, as you can see, JLo’d be all over it.Needless to say, everyone’s pointing to Kevin Federline as the inspiration behind the Gangster Franco look. Full Story
I can’t find the snark and I won’t try and I won’t lie: I am obsessed with Gangster Franco. Like, I think I might love him. Gangster Franco > Casper SmartRIGHT????????This is the first time I’ve ever wanted to be Selena Gomez. No, I’m not sure what James Franco is doing in a movie (Spring Breakers) starring Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens that, so far at least, has them running around in bikinis the whole time. Full Story

Oh look. Daniel Radcliffe is back in spectacles wearing a scarf. Not THOSE spectacles, not THAT scarf...Here he is in New York on the set of Kill Your Darlings in costume with his hair curled as Allen Ginsberg. James Franco, of course, was the last to play Ginsberg in Howl. I loved him in that film. He was so. Full Story

Why haven't we sent this request to the Gossip Genie yet? The aloof Rooney Mara and James Franco Went To Film School - they're perfectly pretentious for each other. You like it? I like it. I love it. Or...how does Franco the Artist compare to David Fincher the Artist? Having tasted true genius - debatable, if you ask me - does Franco's amateur poetry lose its appeal?Here's Franco earlier this week at a screening for his My Own Private River, featuring footage of River Phoenix from My Own Private Idaho.

James Franco is a movie critic. For the Paris Review. And his latest piece is a study of Twilight 4 and The Descendants which... I mean I guess I kind of love him for comparing boring The Descendants to the boring ass mess that was Twilight 4. Because, as you know, as I’ve noted a few times now, I feel like The Descendants is SO overrated (click here Full Story
