FRANCO ON THE INSTAGRAM CONTROVERSY
James Franco gave Howard the story behind the Instagram scandal, where a 17-year-old shared a private conversation she and Franco had over the social media service.
According to Franco, he shouldn't have been portrayed as a "victim-basher."
"How is she a victim? I was, like anybody, just trying to meet somebody."
JAMES ON SLEEPING WITH CO-STARS
While he may have in the past, Franco no longer sleeps with his co-stars. And that includes his co-star in Palo Alto, Emma Roberts.
"I don't think I've done it in a while," Franco said. "I think I'm getting to the point where my co-stars, if they're playing my romantic co-star, most of them are married or in relationships. When I was young, it was like, 'Well, yeah, we're all young,' or, 'This is our first movie, oh this is so exciting, let's get together.' And then a lot of those don't work out."
'IF ANYONE SHOULD PAINT SETH [ROGEN] NAKED, IT SHOULD BE ME!'
James also gave Howard the story behind why he has painted nudes of Seth Rogen. Part of that story: No, Franco revealed, Rogen has never posed in his birthday suit for those paintings. Franco did give this gem of a quote, though:
"If anybody should paint Seth naked, it should be me."
HE DID NOT HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH THAT WOMAN
