James Franco: Bad at Porn, Good at Sleeping

James Franco: Bad at Porn, Good at Sleeping
James Franco has made a name for himself in Hollywood as being that guy who has a million jobs. He has like 5 different degrees, acts, makes music sometimes, writes poetry, he even makes invisible art (this is real, scroll down).

So basically, Franco constantly begs the question, is there anything Franco can't do? No, Nothing. There is nothing that Franco can't do. Well maybe there's one thing he's not very good at...

Porn.

Franco stopped by Conan's show to talk about his failed foray into porn acting.

"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 decide to film ourselves," he tells Conan, "And I watched it back said 'Yeah, let's never watch that again."

When Conan asked what was so wrong with his, uhmm, abilities, Franco just said his reaction to his sex tape was "That's not sexy at all. That's really boring." and Franco ads, "those people in the pornos, they are great performers." Apparently Franco's Oscar nominated performances in his non-porn roles didn't translate.

Well, Franco can cross "sex tape" off his bucket list and move onto something else, like flying a plane. No lie, he can do that to.

"I did get my pilots license about 4 or 5 years ago. But I haven't flown in about 3 years." says Franco.

Though he wasn't very good at that either, "I actually fell asleep piloting a plane," confesses Franco.

He then brags, "Yah, I can fall asleep anywhere." One more dumb thing James Franco is good at: falling asleep.

James Franco can be seen in the upcoming film "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" but he makes headlines for all the other weird things he does.

You know, I've got James Franco all figured out. Basically, he knows that he's good at acting and that he looks good on camera, but in actuality James Franco really only wants to be a professional stoner. I think he just wants to be a student for the rest of his life writing slam poetry and doing other things that don't make any money (i.e. sculpting, painting, digital multimedia) but since he's good at acting, he pops in to Hollywood from time to time to collect a paycheck (i.e. film "Rise of the Planet of the Apes.")

Oh, about that invisible art. There's a museum called The Museum of Non-Visible Art and Franco was commissioned to create a piece of work, but since it's invisible it's basically just air, with a placard that reads "by James Franco."
