James Franco Covers 'Details' March 2013

James Franco Covers 'Details' March 2013

James Franco is sultry serious on the cover of Details magazine’s March 2013 issue, on newsstands February 19.

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

On homosexuality rumors: “One of my professors at Yale… had been a 19th-century- literature scholar. But as soon as he brought his queer life into that world, it gave him this energy and a realization: It wasn’t about being gay but about being different. And that gave me a feeling of enormous permission.”

On negative criticism: “All you have is what you work on and how hard you work on it. As far as the results or the reception, it’s out of your hands. That’s something I really had to come to understand.”

On his character Alien in Spring Breakers: “Alien is what happens if we get all our wishes: unrestrained consumerism, ego, id, sex…”

On taking on different careers: “…I’d become incredibly frustrated staying in the lines of my job description as an actor. I was making it hard, not only on everyone else, but on myself as well.”
