There’s a reason why Dave Franco isn’t on any kind of social media: it’s because of his older brother James’ antics. James Franco is known to speak in third person, for being narcissistic, and for selling his art online for tens of thousands of dollars. He also shares a weird friendship with Seth Rogen. For Christmas 2014, they posed nude with Santa and proclaimed that it was their Christmas card.
And then there was James Franco’s Instagram scandal. I still haven’t forgiven him for that because he has yet to reply to any of my direct messages. I am hurt, James Edward Franco.
Why His Weirdness Shouldn’t Matter: James Franco is a great actor. Peculiar, yes. But some of the most creative geniuses of history have a bit of insanity and quirkiness in their veins. Maybe James is just emulating them.
