James Franco is one of GQ magazine's cover boys for the June comedy issue, and he's not just showing his silly side. The 35-year-old Spring Breakers star is also rather candid about his public persona, the worst movie he's ever made and whether we can ever expect a Pineapple Express sequel.
"My public persona is something that is only partially constructed by me, so if people want to mock that, it's fine," the actor/musician/poet/student tells GQ. "I mock it."
Though Franco is an Oscar nominee thanks to his part in 127 Hours, the actor does admit to one wrong career choice. "Your Highness? That movie sucks. You can't get around that."
One movie Franco and comedy enthusiasts can agree on is Pineapple Express. When asked about a possible sequel to the cult classic, Franco quips, "I don't know what the holdup is. I would do it, Danny [McBride] would do it, Seth [Rogen] would do it. I think Seth and Evan [Goldberg] just need a fire lit under their asses."
In the meantime, Franco, Rogen, McBride and their funny friends will hit the big screen for the new apocalyptic comedy This Is the End. As for playing himself in a movie, the A-lister jokes, "James Franco character was --I guess the only way to describe it is he was a lot douchier than the version that we came up with. I was the materialistic guy. They were really playing up the Gucci-modeling aspect of my life."
