James Franco prepared for role by watching gigolo have sex

Pin it

We probably should be paying James Franco a stipend, given how often he does or says something outrageous enough to land him in these pages. This time, the multi-hyphenate creative type told James Lipton that, in preparation for playing a male prostitute in the Nicolas Cage-directed 2002 film Sonny, he befriended a gigolo and ended up watching the man have paid sex in the back of a strip club.

He also told Lipton that "sometimes rabbits, like, turn me on. I don't know why." Which, honestly, James, go home and get some rest. We will resume blogging about you tomorrow.
