Normally when it is revealed that a celebrity has made a sex tape all hell breaks loose and they hang their head in shame. Yet it would appear that Oscar-nominated actor James Franco finds no shame in it at all. In fact he offers the information up quite freely…without even being asked.
Speaking in a discussion with Newsweek Magazine about kissing on-screen, the hunky actor, who is to host this year’s Oscars ceremony alongside Anne Hathaway, revealed that he made his own sex tape when he was 19-years-old.
He went on to say that, since watching back his own adult movie debut, he had a newfound respect for porn stars because, and I quote, : “I think if anybody who has made a home sex tape knows, what feels best doesn’t always look best. I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, ‘Oh, that looks horrible.’ You have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just doing it, they’re really selling it.”
Good to know, James.
This is not the first time that the 127 hours star has shared more than was required about his personal life. Last year he let loose that he masturbates between 4 and 5 times a day despite the fact that he has been in a relationship with actress Ahna O’Reilly since 2006.
He said: “I spend a fair amount of time alone, especially when I travel for work or whatever, but I’m in hotels a lot for a lot of my life. So, when I’m alone, I do masturbate a lot. I don’t know why. It’s like you have those days where it’s just like, I have a ton of writing to do, or a ton of reading to do, and you’re just like, OK, I’m going to be on the couch all day or in bed all day just doing that. I tend to have a * four- or five-time day.”
I know you are all about to Google “James Franco sex tape”, but I am afraid it will bring you no joy. Not that I have tried.
