He's getting ugly, FAST.
Wait, no. He's become ugly. Really, really ugly. And in desperate need of a shower.
I used to like Franco, but he became tiresome quite a while ago.
Did anyone here read his article in N+1 magazine (Winter 2012 issue) on the challenges of his craft?
It's time to shut up, James.
[quote]Did anyone here read his article in N+1 magazine (Winter 2012 issue) on the challenges of his craft?
I keep thinking about reading it, but then I'm lured away by the excitement of watching my clothes spin in the dryer instead.
I think his career just didn't happen. Still reeling from his horrible Oscar hosting performance.
As he tweets his nipple he complains people are using him?
I've been wondering what's happening with his career, R8. I was surprised to learn he's filming a movie with Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens. I mean, really? What's next, a show on the Disney Channel?
We'd all be happier if no one used him.
He hit a wall hard looks-wise.
He just received an Oscar nomination last year. His career is hardly over, bitches.
What the fuck happened to his face? is it just from smoking, or has he also become a heavy drinker too? I have never seen someone age as fast as he has aged. You'd guess he was well into his 40s instead of only 33.
He needs to STFU. We're all tired of his faux antics.
That is ridiculous, R14. Franco doesn't look like he's in his 40's at all. He looks like a guy who is about 30.
And we talk about celebrities here who have aged far worse all the time.
I agree with you bitches that you correctly predicted the way he was turning into an attention whore, but you're wrong about him not being good-looking. He is still a handsome guy and you know very well you would go down on him in a second.
Another shot of Franco from this year. Does this really look "about 30" to you? if so, you need your eyes checked.
If I could I would help the poor baby feel better by letting him use me.
You're picking the worst photos of him - photos where he has facial hair and is not cleaned up or looking good.
He's totally gross, old looking and looks like he smells. He does not look 30. He looks like a 45 year old on a bender.
He does look 33...and very hungover.
Granted, he does look pretty fucked out in a lot of photos, but why not? Too much partying, too much cock.
Sheesh, cut the guy a break.
It's kind hard to be enrolled in 15 Ph.D. programs, filming 4 movies, writing 3 novels, and hosting the Oscars all at one.
Do you think life in the closet is proving to be too much for him?
Life as a professional cock-teaser, maybe.
Dilettante, dipsomaniac, douche.
I like james. I could be his older brother we look that much alike. But these were his decisions he has made concerning career and life and he has to own them. If he was used by anyone he allowed it to happen. Time to stop doing the lame ass stuff and focus on serious things.
Oscar nominee, millionaire, scholar

Oh, I think I'll be the judge of that.
The full quote:
[quote]That article by Sam Anderson, I mean I didn't mind it. It was a fine article, but I kind of felt like people like that—there's this group of I guess art students or something in Oregon that have just put out this book called Fucking James Franco—and to me it feels like they're pretending to be critical of this public persona that's called James Franco but they're also using it to serve themselves
Sam Anderson just went around and collected all those fucking kudos for that article, so he's really just doing it for himself and he's using me. It's the same thing with Fucking James Franco—you write a book about these fictional sexual encounters that I have, it seems like you're being kind of critical, but in fact, they're just trying to tap into whatever that was.
James Franco continues his recent video binge of recording himself singing catchy pop songs.
In his latest installment, the 33-year-old actor sings Carly Rae Jepsen‘s hit song “Call Me Maybe” with a gal pal.
Just last week, James lip synced to Rihanna‘s “U Da One” and the week before to Selena Gomez‘s “Love You Like A Love Song.”
R35 Does he think that shit is "cute"? Because it's not. It just confirms that everything he does is "Look at me! Look at me!" attention-seeking shit.
And yes, he looks like total shit for someone in his early 30's. Fans will say it's because he works so hard, his schedule is so full, blah blah blah, but fail to mention his "recreational activities". Whatever the case, he looks like shit.
Who ever said James Franco looked like a normal 30 year old? Yeah. No.
Who doesn't look like Madeleine Albright after a night of drinking?
[quote]You're picking the worst photos of him - photos where he has facial hair and is not cleaned up or looking good.
But that's how he looks all the time. That's the point.
He's going to have a hard fall when all this comes down crashing down around his ears. The public got sick of him last year when he was so over-exposed.
Jewish men all live to be 90 but from age 30 onward they look like wizened old men.
[quote]Jewish men all live to be 90 but from age 30 onward they look like wizened old men.
You're right. It seems there are very few Jewish men that actually still look good after 35.
I wonder if Zac Efron will be an exception.
He always looks tired and stoned. The patchy facial hair doesn't help either. I don't get how someone can look so beautiful and then just let it all go. He needs a tan too.
So is he being ironic doing these lip sync covers of dumb pop songs? Gay? Or just another tease?
Franco is only Jewish on one side.
As for good-looking Jews, Tony Goldwyn would be on my list. (eg. Patrick Swazye's 'friend' in 'Ghost')
Tired, dirty, stoned, Chik-let teeth, smelly, disgusting patchy facial hair, horrible overgrown hair that hasn't been washed in days....
I normally roll my eyes when DLers put down good looking guys, but fugly douchebag James Franco deserves every insult posted here and then some.
Both Franco and Tony Goldwyn are a quarter Jewish. No matter they still look handsome.
Who has Franco screwed? His co-star in Your Highness Zooey Deschanel spoke very highly of him......
Franco & Goldwyn are half-Jewish as far as I know.
[quote]It seems there are very few Jewish men that actually still look good after 35.
Benjamin Netanyahu is a conservative asshole, but he looks great for his age. Very handsome man.
You needn't post a photo of Merle Haggard r20 to get your point across.
Dave is going to end up being a way bigger star than James.
He's got it wrong. He's a media whore who uses everyone.
Has anyone else seen his new "documentary," Francophrenia (Or: Don't Kill Me I Know Where the Baby Is)?
And, yes, that's really its title.
He directed it, and it's about... himself.
I could not believe how self-indulgent and mind-numbingly boring it was.
R56 I wouldn't watch a documentary about how "wonderful" he thinks he is unless you paid me.
I don't think that's likely, R54. Dave is too short and too cute-looking to be a leading man, and I don't see him getting an Oscar nomination.
I think he can have a successful t.v. career, though.
James Franco has become a tiresome believer of his own bullshit. The queer counter-culture schtick he's peddling was played out before he was even born. He's just another needy, privileged ego who simply won't be fulfilled if he can't share his creative expression with the world, like we need yet another take on the human experience from another good-looking, ivy league one-percenter. Yawn.
Anyone have a link to his student film with all the male nudity?
His coat is lovely.
Did he have a nervous breakdown? He used to be this mysterious James Dean hermit type actor and now he's a famewhore..What happened?
That student film was boring and amateur. It was just him rolling around naked with all these guys. No subtext yet it was supposed to be so deep.
"It was just him rolling around naked with all these guys."
[quote]That student film was boring and amateur. It was just him rolling around naked with all these guys.
He wasn't in it. It was kids playing basketball nude.
[quote]Did he have a nervous breakdown? He used to be this mysterious James Dean hermit type actor and now he's a famewhore..What happened?
First of all, please don't compare this trash to James Dean.
Second, he's always been a famewhore - it's just that he's really showing his true colors the past few years.
R49 , Franco's grand mother is half Jewish so that makes him one eighth Jewish. Tony Goldwyn's dad Samuel Goldwyn Jr was raised Catholic as his mother, Frances Howard was Catholic. So that makes Tony a quarter Jewish .
Agree that all the sex stuff is old. It's a waste of his intelligence, or at least his curiosity. Still way more interesting than most actors.
Word earlier this year was that he's on tap to play Erik "Mystery" von Markovik in "The Game" (adaptation of Neil Strauss's book).
It's the kind of role for which he might get a few awards if he does it right.
R68, the point is that they both have one Jewish parent.
In any event, I think Goldwyn identifies as Jewish and although Franco has said he was not raised Jewish, he has expressed interest in becoming more involved with the religion.
It's up to them to decide what they consider themselves - breaking it down to quarters etc. isn't really determinative of identity.
Tony Goldwyn's Dad was half Jewish and his mom wasn't Jewish AND his father was raised Catholic.Now how does that make him Jewish?!As for Franco his grandmother that was half Jewish was raised as a Christian. So much for being Jewish.....
This is the oldest looking 34 year old I've ever seen. And this is supposed to be hot?
