James Franco: Rebel with an Oscar Hosting Gig

James Franco tells EW why he's hosting the Academy Awards:

“When [producer Bruce Cohen] asked me to host, I was very, very surprised, and my initial reaction was ‘No.’ Then I thought about it and I thought, well, why not? Because I’ll look bad? Well, I don’t care….When we finally met and discussed it in person, all my representatives were saying, ‘No! Of course not!’ So that always sparks something in me. So I said, ‘Yes, of course!’ Because that reaction that they have is based on conventional wisdom of what makes a good career. And that can be boring — really boring.”

    Franco being ‘gay friendly’ is an understatement. One of the most original, major talents today – I look forward to him hosting with Anne Hathaway.

  2. Matt26 says

    I hope he brings his personality to the show and it becomes watchable this year.
    I like James Franco so much, good looking, great personality, hot, honest etc.

    Even if he wasn’t so gorgeous I’d still be in love with him.
