Esquire Reveals James Franco Reads ‘Twilight’ (PHOTOS)

James Franco is reading Twilight - but only as research for the children’s book he plans to write “someday.” The actor/grad student/artist/poet/occasional soap opera star reveals his choice of reading material – and trims his facial stubble – to grace the cover of the September issue of Esquire magazine.

Franco also chuckles his way through a video “interview” with his younger brother, actor and vague Zac Efron lookalike Dave Franco. Check it out here:
