James Franco participated in an Oscar roundtable with Newsweek and may have over-shared just a bit. The question that tripped him up? “Is there a secret to landing a good kiss?”
“Anybody who has made a home sex tape knows what feels best doesn’t always look best,” James told Newsweek when asked how to land a good kiss as an actor. “I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, ‘Oh, that looks horrible.’ So you have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just doing it, they’re really selling it!”
Don’t quite follow? Let James continue to try and explain!
“It’s the same thing with a kiss,” he explained. “It’s not just the kiss that feels best, it’s an image. Something different is happening if it’s a good kiss.”
Not sure the personal experience reference was needed to get his point across, but now fans know that a James tape does exist!
