    like Randy implied I’m taken by surprise that a student able to make $5586 in four weeks on the internet. have you seen this webpage (Click on menu Home more information)

  • michelle

    Hot. he looks so cute in the third pic

  • Polly Marie

    He’s scruffy sexy…like Johnny Depp he always looks sexy even when he’s trying not to

  • Sexy1

    Yes, that Gucci hot mess always knows how to work it. This man looks good in anything. I like the fact that he literally does he own thing and with a sense of humor.

    So pleased he received the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I really, wish he has more movies out in 2012, I enjoyed The Broken Tower but I want more. 2013 is a long time to wait.

    I still think James Franco facebook is the craziest and fun you will find by any star, without him even saying much as an introduction.

    Anyway, another tick in the box for James then with this new project. How on earth does he find the time.. The world needs more James Franco’s.

    anyone who writes for or appears in that sexist, outdated, ridiculous magazine is an idiot in my book. but then again, this dude was already an idiot in my book.

  • skaera

    @cal: That’s because you’re a jealous tool. Bet you will still buy that magazine though. No one’s forcing you to read it but other’s might.

    He might be hilariously goofy at times but clearly not an idiot, with his achievements. Keep up the good work Mr James Franco.

    Looks very hot.

  • sara

    Why is he dressed like this? It is like 30 degrees here in Munich. Weird Americans.

  • lola_uk

    This guy is going to commit suicide. Mark my words, there is something very dark that he’s hiding/battling.

  • mmmmmmmm

    @lola_uk: Wow sick – don’t curse yourself.

    James Franco doesn’t appear to me to be hiding/battling anything, so no I refuse to mark your words.

    Mmmmmmmm, but pray James Franco has a long life, healthy, happy and keep making great movies etc.

    In fact, he comes across as an open book compared to many Hollywood elite, who makes fun of himself constantly (he has a good support system by his family alone), so I think he will be just fine.

    Again, think of the freedom he has for developing his own movies, and other outside interest. It must be cool to be him. He does what he wants not what Hollywood tells him to do.

  • Frozoid

    @lola_uk: Totally agreed. He’s full of conflicts and not comfortable with himself. Aging rapidly.

  • LG

    @lola_uk: Complete silliness! I have seen a few interviews and actors round tables with him, and he just seems to be a handsome, critical in a funny and goofy way, and a someone with a bit dazzled personality, typical of smart people, which I have read he is, but balanced enough.

  • Nate

    Six tales told by an idiot, I’m sure, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

  • lina

    Love him!

  • ja

    i think that he sometimes struggles to express himself artistically. It is like he is so close to that last final touch but can never finish.
