Workaholic actor James Franco has just revealed yet another on-camera appearance he’s made—but he’s not likely to be nominated for an Oscar for this one.

The 32-year-old 127 Hours star tells Newsweek that he filmed a sex tape as a teenager—but, before you get too excited, according to Franco’s account it was less than spectacular.

Asked by the magazine about the secret to crafting a good screen kiss, Franco launched into TMI mode and replied,

“I think if anybody who has made a home sex tape knows, what feels best doesn’t always look best [laughter]. I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, oh, that looks horrible. So what [fellow interviewee] Nicole [Kidman] is talking about, yeah, you have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just doing it, they’re really selling it. It’s the same thing with a kiss. It’s not just the kiss that feels best, it’s an image. Something different is happening if it’s a good kiss.”
