Well, that’s kind of refreshing.
A recent interview with actor James Franco flick hung a sharp right towards Wankville and stayed there for most of the piece. Franco, who starred in the Spiderman films and is playing a hiker who saws off an arm in the upcoming 127 Hours, wasn’t the one who brought up masturbating. But the interviewer mentioned that director Danny Boyle wasn’t able to get it out of Aaron Ralston, the man on whom the film is based, if he had indeed jerked off at any point while trapped under the rock before amputating his own arm.
Franco’s wank habits began spilling out at length when gently stroked:
[laughs] OK. You asked the question. [pause] I spend a fair amount of time alone, especially when I travel maybe to something like this or for work or whatever, but I’m in hotels a lot for a lot of my life. And I don’t mind it because I have a lot of stuff to do on my own. I have a lot of reading to do for school or whatever. [pause, laughs] You asked! 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. [breaks out laughing] So, I probably would have if I was stuck under a rock.
The interview was then “cut short,” presumably because Franco had a bishop to discipline.
