James Franco's Pineapple Request Live

James Franco's Pineapple Request Live

James Franco appears onstage during MTV’s Total Request Live at the MTV Times Square Studios on Tuesday in New York City.

A small Brooklyn T-shirt designer, called WOWCH, alleged the t-shirt James Franco wore in Pineapple Express was their idea first back in 2005, and didn’t get any credit for the design in the movie.

Franco, 30, denied those allegations, stating, “I did keep a copy of the outfit. The t-shirt I wore was designed by the director, David Gordon Green, and it’s a shark with a kitten in its mouth, but they’re both smiling.”

“We completely created that shirt and that shark. David wanted me to wear a purple Monterey Bay t-shirt with a whale on it. I said I wasn’t into the whale shirt, so he came up with his own design, which was the shark,” Franco told the NY Daily News.
