James Franco: I Made an Awful Sex Tape With Ex-Girlfriend (VIDEO)
James Franco finally divulged his dirty little secret while appearing on Conan Tuesday night. The Planet of the Apes star detailed his unfortunate sex tape story, telling the host:
"When I was young, it's not like I went down to Van Nuys and tried to break into the porn industry, I got a video camera and my girlfriend and I decided to film ourselves. And watched it back and said 'Yeah, let's never watch that again.'"Franco added, "It wasn't sexy at all. It was really boring." But the interview gets awkward when he tries to compare the acting performance of his grandma to that of talented porn stars. (Yep, he went there.) Watch the video above.
Of course, this isn't the first time Franco has opened up about his sex tape. He made the revelation while answering a question on how to film "a good kiss" during a roundtable discussion for Newsweek in January.
"I think if anybody who has made a home sex tape knows, what feels best doesn't always look best," he explained.
"I remember when I was 19 doing that and then watching it back and thinking, oh, that looks horrible," Franco, now 32, continued, adding that he has "a lot of respect for those actors in pornography."
