The Franco Family: 'Creative, Curious, Unusual'

The Franco Family: 'Creative, Curious, Unusual'

James Franco and his brothers Dave and Tom and their mother Betsy all smile in this new fun family pic.

Here’s what Betsy had to say to

On her three sons: “From the the day [James, Tom, and Dave] were born, they were creative, curious, and unusual.”

On getting into the publishing field: “James and [his brother] Tom…had to be distracted while I was working or else and they probably would have eaten the paints! They were my top priority, but…I knew I couldn’t exist without being creative. That’s why educational publishing was so appealing and eventually gave way to my own writing projects.”

    What a wonderful family.
    How unfortunate that there father/husband is not there with them anymore.
    May he rest in peace.

    The Franco family is pretty cool. They all went to my high school and grew up in the neighborhood. My old high school english/film teacher taught James… and she always talked highly of his family. He visits the high school almost every year nowadays which is always fun!

    I love you Dave Franco.

    @Chiara: STOP looking in the MIRROR.

    When it comes to the Franco’s – no such thing as ugly.

    All of them, are extremely talented and hot. I can never tell by looking at pics of James and Tom when they were younger, which one was which. Think, James is on the right, great sets of family pics though.

    I hope, they always stay close and yes, RIP Doug but what an awesome legacy to leave behind and of course, Betsy continues to do amazing work and guide these boys correctly.

    Tom, please get into acting, always more room for Franco’s on screen. Can’t get enough of these amazing talent.

    Oh, we also need a new Funny or Die video from the Franco boys – all 3 would be just PERFECT.
