James Franco: We all need to cut loose

James Franco

James Franco has been to many parties so knows that people sometimes just want to "cut loose".

The actor has been promoting his film Spring Breakers recently, which follows a group of girls who get into problems while on vacation.

He portrays a rapper called Alien in the release and insists that even though he's never been on a wild college holiday it didn't affect his performance.

"The spring break is pretty foreign to me. But there are things I can relate to," he told Heat magazine. "I've been to parties and I could understand how people want to cut loose and that's one of the reasons they go, to be in an environment where you don't have the same rules."

Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson also appear in the release. Vanessa has previously hinted James stayed in character during the shoot, making it difficult for people to get to know him.

The actor won't confirm or deny the claim.

"I don't know what to say," he stuttered. "I certainly looked like him. I couldn't take my cornrows out. I wasn't smoking weed and I didn't have real weapons. I didn't talk with Alien's accent."

James, Vanessa and Ashley's characters are involved in a steamy scene in the film, which the girls found tough to shoot. For James it was just work and he was careful to remain professional throughout.

"The actresses were a little nervous and they got a little drunk. I didn't," he explained. "We just got into it. They had patches over their various parts and so did I. We just got in the pool and that's how it was."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Scorpio:

You prefer to work out problems in secret, with no interference from friends and family. It's not that you don't respect other people's opinions. You simply know intuition is your best guide. In the past, you followed conventional wisdom, only to regret your choice. Don't make this mistake now, when there is an important career matter before you. Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
