Well, kind 0f a sex tape. James Franco was on Conan last night promoting Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but Conan O’Brien was far more interested in a sex tape James made a while ago that with promoting. And rightfully so, I mean James Franco sex tape? HOT! Check out the video of the interview after the jump.
According to Franco, he and girlfriend thought it would be interesting to tape themselves making love, but as Contact Music says, they were really disappointed with the results. He told Conan, “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 we watched it back and said, ‘Yeah, let’s never watch that again.’”
It seems to be from this event that James garnered a whole new respect for adult entertainment actors. He then tried to explain his respect by citing his grandmother, at which point Conan abruptly got up and jumped behind the stage. He came back so James could explain, though. According to him, just because his grandmother can cry and feel sad about something, doesn’t necessarily mean she could be a good actor who has to convey emotion on screen. Just like adult film stars. I get it, James. Good analogy.
James isn’t new to talking about adult themed content on talks shows. Why just the other day he was talking about bongs. Gotta love that boy. Plus, he looked pretty good at the Apes premiere. Remember to watch the Conan video after the jump. Hilarious!
