His essay about LiLo was basically the best thing ever.
And just when we thought that James Franco couldn’t get any weirder, he’s only gone and done it… giving us all a serious WTF?! face.
After his VERY odd ‘short-story’ about Lindsay, the A-lister has gone and released an entire book of poetry about his fellow stars.
Seriously – where does he find the blimmin’ time?!
The collection, called Directing Herbert White, is beyond bizarre and features a poem about late actor Heath Ledger, an ode to River Phoenix and one in the voice of LiLo… bet she’s getting a bit sick of this now TBH.
One is titled ‘Ledger’ (original, yah):
“There had been a time
When we were up for the same roles,
10 Things I Hate about You
(Based on The Taming of the Shrew),
And The Patriot –
Funny, you were australian and so was Mel –
You were the knight in A Knight’s Tale…”
Erm… okay, Franco.
A line from the LiLo offering is also pretty immense: “Fame raped me / And I raped it, if you know what I’m saying.”
While the Oscar nominee also discusses his own fame, claiming that there is a ‘fake’ verison and a ‘real’ verson of himself:
“There is a fake version of me / And he’s the one that writes / These poems. / He has an attitude and a swagger / That I don’t have.
“He’s become the real me / Because everyone treats me / Like I’m the fake me.”
The bizarre collection of poems comes after Franco’s surreal essay about Linday Lohan, which was basically about how they DIDN’T SLEEP TOGETHER, OKAY?
One line read: “Now we were lying in bed. I wasn’t going to f**k her. She had her head on my shoulder. She started to talk. I let her.
“I ran my fingers through her hair and thought about this girl sleeping on my chest, our fictional Hollywood girl, Lindsay. What will she do?”
WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S REAL ANYMORE.
