“I don’t see myself in terms of artifice. I see myself as a real person who chooses to live my life in an open way – artistically.”

James Franco (born 19 April 1978) is an American actor, director, screenwriter, producer, teacher, author and poet. His books include Palo Alto, Actors Anonymous: A Novel, and A California Childhood. Franco has also written, directed and starred in several short plays, two of which — Fool’s Gold and The Ape — he adapted into feature-length films. He wrote and directed the film Good Time Max.

Quotes:

  1. You want to be interesting? Be interested.
  2. They say living well is the best revenge but sometimes writing well is even better.
  3. Sometimes it’s painful to be oneself; at other times it seems impossible to escape oneself.
  4. Always have one artistic thing that is pure, at least one thing, where you don’t compromise. You can do other things to make money, but have one pure area.
  5. Make your characters interested in something. Striving for something. In need of something. Good at something. This will make them likeable and interesting.
  6. You also need love. Your characters need to love something, otherwise they will be unlovable.
  7. I’m a huge Cormac McCarthy fan and have read every book of his.
