Remember how during the Oscars, James Franco gave a performance so bad, Billy Crystal‘s left nut could have done a better job? Seriously, you could have knocked Billy out, cut off one of his balls, and parked it in front of the audience for three hours and it would have been funnier than James. Anyway, longtime Oscar writer Bruce Vilanch gave an interview to Vulture trying to come up with an excuse as to why he sucked so badly.
“I don’t think he realized how big a deal it is to do it until he was actually confronted with it. I think he thought he would kind of … I don’t know what he thought. I thought maybe it was a performance-art prank, and then I realized he sincerely wanted to do it. But it’s outside of those guys’ comfort zones. The only people who know how to host those shows are people who get up onstage every night and say, ‘Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. A funny thing happened … ‘ Or people like Bette [Midler] who can get up and sing all night and tell stories.” SOURCE
Anyway, Franco has already spat back at Vilanch because clearly, he’s trying to torpedo the sweet living fuck out of his own career. Seriously, I remember the days when I thought James was hot, charming and talented, now I just think he’s a pretentious douchebag. The sad thing is, despite being wedged firmly up his own ass, Spiderman 3 is still the biggest pile of shit he’s ever been in.
