Updated Apr 19, at 4: The message behind the indie film has been getting distorted as of late. The author of the book the movie is based on, James Franco, confessed to trying to woo an underage fan. Coincidentally, in the movie, which hits theaters on May 9, his character embarks on the same mission. Tribeca Film The actor turned writer published the book in , which is a collection of short stories. In an interview with Los Angeles magazine , he gave this synopsis of his writing debut:

‘Palo Alto’: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Mail By Duarte Garrido, Entertainment Reporter James Franco seems to have given up experimenting with difficult novels and student projects and is focusing on his career. One year ago, I would have said James Franco was a lost cause. The then year-old movie star had just tried and failed to adapt his second southern novel to film, was releasing a cringeworthy comedy with Brian Cranston and was starring and producing another three projects ranging from the pastiche drama to a thriller about the gay porn industry.

He was trying out everything, and succeeding in very little.

James Franco used to be a firm favourite in our top ten imaginary celebrity boyfriends, but if he carries on with this kind of behaviour, he’s going to be banished from the list for good.

But did he really try to bang a teen Scot? Here, we outline the compelling case that Franco is pulling a hoax. It tells the story of a year-old girl named April who enters into a relationship with her old, creepy soccer coach, played by author and movie star James Franco. Close examination of the trailer reveals that the moral of the film is summed up in a line from the teaser: But because film actors typically experience fame in greater measure, our personas can feel at the mercy of forces far beyond our control.

Our rebellion against the hand that feeds us can instigate a frenzy of commentary that sets in motion a feedback loop:

James Franco’s Track Record of Creepy Behavior: Texting Teens and Nude Selfies

Lead to palace of wisdom Off very short pier When it came out last week that James Franco, 35, had been caught trying to hook up with a girl of 17 over Instagram who sends that stuff over Instagram? Should James Franco wish to cohabit with farm animals, walk over hot coals, dip his head in chocolate or write poetry, we would not care about that, either. James Franco actually does write poetry! Franco, by the way, wrote the collection of short stories on which the film Palo Alto is based.

Confirmed: The creepy Instagram chat James Franco had with a year-old was not a publicity stunt for his upcoming film Palo Alto — in which the star plays a high school soccer coach who strikes up a romantic relationship with a teenage student. James apparently took “method acting” a wee bit too far when he engaged in a cringeworthy conversation with Lucy Clode, a Scottish school-girl.

In , 17 years after retiring from professional football, Brown mused about coming out of retirement to play for the Los Angeles Raiders when it appeared that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Franco Harris would break his all-time rushing record. Harris himself, who retired after the season after playing eight games with the Seattle Seahawks , fell short of Brown’s mark. Following Harris’s last season, in that January, a challenge between Brown and Harris in a yard dash was nationally televised.

Brown, at 48 years old, was certain he could beat Harris, though Harris was only 34 years old and just ending his elite career. Harris clocked in at 5. In , Brown was hired as a color commentator for the Ultimate Fighting Championship , a role he occupied for the first six pay-per-view events. He currently works with juveniles caught up in the gang scene in Los Angeles and Cleveland through this Amer-I-Can program.

Earlier in the evening, the actress, 55, slammed the award show’s choice to have Seth Meyers host. Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much,” she wrote. Sheedy, who famously starred in the cult classics The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo’s Fire, continued to criticise Franco, 39, after he won the award for best actor in a musical or comedy for his portrayal of Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist.

British[ edit ] On 21 October, Admiral Nelson had 27 ships of the line under his command. He also had four gun second rates and twenty third rates. One of the third rates was an gun vessel, and sixteen were gun vessels. The remaining three were gun ships, which were being phased out of the Royal Navy at the time of the battle. Nelson also had four frigates of 38 or 36 guns, a gun schooner and a gun cutter.

Franco-Spanish[ edit ] Against Nelson, Vice-Admiral Villeneuve—sailing on his flagship Bucentaure—fielded 33 ships of the line, including some of the largest in the world at the time. The Spanish contributed four first-rates to the fleet. The fourth first-rate carried guns. The fleet had six gun third-rates, four French and two Spanish , and one Spanish gun third-rate. The remaining 22 third-rates were gun vessels, of which fourteen were French and eight Spanish. In total, the Spanish contributed 15 ships of the line and the French The fleet also included five gun frigates and two gun brigs , all French.

Nelson’s plan[ edit ] The prevailing tactical orthodoxy at the time involved manoeuvring to approach the enemy fleet in a single line of battle and then engaging broadside in parallel lines. One reason for the development of the line of battle system was to facilitate control of the fleet:

James Franco Apparently Tried to Hook Up With a Teenager On Instagram

Updated Apr 19, at 4: James Franco was put on blast by a teen fan who basically played him after the star connected with her via Instagram and phone. At the same time, Clode is underage … by one month. While some are siding with Clode, others believe Franco was just set up.

Mar 26,  · James Franco is America’s darling! He would never sully himself with someone as ‘over friendly’ as Lindsay has proved to be and anyway, he has said many times, he loves sucking d i c k!

Production[ edit ] According to Harmony Korine , he wrote the film partially to make up for his own spring breaks, as he had been fully devoted to skateboarding, and therefore missed out on what he saw as opportunities for hedonistic pursuits. The exterior shots and some interior shots of the college Selena Gomez’s and Ashley Benson’s characters attend were filmed at New College of Florida , while the dormitory and classroom shots were filmed at Ringling College of Art and Design..

I would say the biggest influence on the role was this local Florida rapper named Dangeruss. He’s fairly unknown, but he was down there in the place, living the life, and he became the biggest model for me, and he’s in the movie. In regard to the former perspective, The Guardian suggests that the film “reinforces rape culture ” and “turns young women into sex objects”, [41] while other reviewers state that it “pushes booze -and- bikini hedonism to the extreme”, [42] as the “camera glides up, down and around these women’s bodies like a giant tongue.

I think that’s sort of the point. When a pre-med student on spring break loses her top, drinks to the point of passing out and grabs a willing lugnut by the ears for six hours of anonymous fun, is she setting the woman’s movement back 40 years, or taking charge of her life like any man would do at that age? The website’s critical consensus reads, “Spring Breakers blends stinging social commentary with bikini cheesecake and a bravura James Franco performance. In , British film magazine Little White Lies placed the film at number 40 on their list of the 50 best films of the decade so far.
