    As a James Franco fan, I’m tired of him. He’s like “Oh wow, this will so impress my classmates if I take a photo of the photographers, it’s, like, so deep. I’m not a dumb actor derpdyderpderp.” Yes you are, James. And your Oscar hosting sucked, maybe it would’ve been better if I didn’t watch the show and just followed you on Twitter because then it would be like an art installation ya dig? Uh, no. I don’t dig.

    I used to like this guy but he $ucks
    His Oscar hosting was awful and he humiliated himself.
    I have no idea what his purpose in the acting world is.
    He has left a negative impression on me and I felt sorry for AH.
    Boo James Franco

    I consider myself a fan but since the Oscars I’ve been totally turned off by him. I followed his twitter for about a week and stopped because he never said anything. Very boring. Was totally disappointed! Oh well.

    Oh I still think he’s cute, and he was great in 127 hours. No doubt that was a powerful performance! But yeah, the Oscar hosting gig was a mistake, not his thing.

    Used to be a fan, but he’s acting like a suck since his Oscar duties. If he just manned up afterwards instead of acting like a petulant prat, I’d respect him more.
