Just when we were about to start our annual whining about awards show season overload, Academy Awards co-host and nominee James Franco went and talked about his sex tape.
“I think anybody who has made a home sex tape knows, what feels best doesn’t always look best [on camera]. I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, ‘Oh, that looks horrible,’” he tells Newsweek during their Oscars roundtable. “You have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just doing it, they’re really selling it.”
Franco is nominated for Best Actor in “127 Hours,” which we’re devastated to report not once required him to “really sell it.” He is, however, sweaty and trapped in a canyon with nothing but climbing gear for the vast majority of the film, if you can work with that.
