What the hell is James Franco up to now? Esquire is reporting that the lovable (and lust-worthy) loon has been trucking around town with the hottest accessory: a copy of Twilight. And he's got no qualms spilling how much he loves the vamptastic novel, also curiously commenting about how he's reading it "for a project."
So is Franco the next superstar to don fangs and join the series? Or is he just another notch on Team Edward's (we assume) belt?
We're going with neither, Twi-hards.
And what's our fave part of his declaration to Stephenie Meyer?
"It's crazy how much sexual tension there is. It just builds and builds. I mean it never stops. It's sort of explosive by the end. Crazy. Like they'll blow up with it. And of course, they don't. Which is the point too, I guess."
You've got to be kidding us. And we're sure he is.
See, James is a huge fan of effin' with people, as very few celebrities can successfully and intentionally do. He knows the right things to say (and do) to get people abuzz. Hence his eclectic choice of projects.
But right now he's got a rather normal flick coming out, Eat Pray Love (in case you forgot he's starring alongside Miss Julia Roberts), and what better way to pimp it than to play off the hottest thing around.
Guess you bested us this time, James. We'll see your movie, if you agree to camp out with us opening night for Breaking Dawn.
