James Franco Reveals Qualms with Michael Fassbender's Movie 'Shame' (Exclusive)

James Franco poses with his I Am Michael director Justin Kelly in this feature for BlackBook‘s latest issue.

In a quote provided exclusively to JustJared.com, the 37-year-old actor talks about his feelings on sex in movies and if any progress has been made on the issue. He uses Michael Fassbender‘s movie Shame to discuss his feelings.

“I don’t know how much progress we’ve made in movies about sex. Take a movie like Shame, which is an incredibly well-made movie in many ways, but the main character — because he’s supposed to be a sex addict, even though he actually doesn’t seem like that much of a sex addict to me — needed to be kind of punished in the end,” James said. “I had my qualms about showing his bottom as an addict in this seedy gay bar that’s depicted as kind of like hell, and then getting blown by a guy, as if that’s the lowest a person can go.”

    If you’re a straight man and you’re so addicted to sex that you resort to getting blown by a dude in a gay bar, then YES I would definitely consider that a low point.
