James Franco Covers 'Bullett' Spring 2013

James Franco Covers 'Bullett' Spring 2013

James Franco is bright and colorful for Bullett magazine’s Spring 2013 issue.

Here’s what the 34-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On being considered a heartthrob: “I don’t know if I ever tried to break away from being considered a heartthrob. I actually think there are times when a role calls for you to look your best.”

On criticism: “Criticism can sting but not for long. At this point I’ve heard it all, good and bad. I can take anything. If anyone wants to say that my doing these things makes me a jerk, that’s not about me—that’s about people reacting to me. I don’t need to be liked for anything I do. I put out a lot of different kinds of material, and maybe people read that as egotistical. Or maybe, since a lot of it does involve some aspect of me, they find it self-aggrandizing. But there’s a long tradition of artists using themselves. Look, I know I’m not perfect. And, who knows, maybe a part of it has to do with self-obsession. But it’s also about using this weird thing that is a public persona as raw material for creative projects.”

Oz co-star Mila Kunis on James: “I think people would be surprised by what a calm and decent person he is. I don’t want to get too personal but he’s very humble. People know that he’s well-educated and that he’s well-read, but they might not know that he’s also a really good guy.”
