James Franco gives (perhaps inevitable) quotes about masturbation
In his new film "127 Hours," actor James Franco plays adventure-seeking Aron Ralston, a young man who in 2003 barked up the wrong canyon and wound up trapped under a boulder -- eventually forced to amputate his own hand to free his arm.
"Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle brings the anxiety-ridden scenario to the screen, and includes some good ol' implied self-love from Franco.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Franco touches on a scene in which his character, presumably with nothing better to do than sit pinned down by a giant rock, indulges in some John Mayer-style self-gratification. And how he relates!
"I'm in hotels a lot for a lot of my life. And I don't mind it because I have a lot of stuff to do on my own. I have a lot of reading to do for school or whatever .... You asked! So, when I'm alone, I do masturbate a lot," Franco said.
Viva la method acting.
