James Franco Explains Why the Red Carpet and the Ladies Aren't Enough

James Franco got frank on the Colbert Report last night. When Stephen asked him why red carpets and the ladies aren't enough for the actor currently pursuing a PhD from Yale and other countless projects, James opened up about what drives his intellectual curiosities.

After James's controversial Oscar hosting gig, we wondered whether there were any more Francophiles out there; with news of his involvement in feature films, General Hospital, random art installations, and seemingly every prestigious grad program making headlines, Franco fatigue is in the air. This interview offers some insight into what makes James Franco tick, making him pretty likable again, in my opinion. What do you think?

ok, first of all, Stephen Colbert remains one of the most hilarious and sexiest people in comedy. a note to Tina Fey, this is how to be funny and biting. second of all, I have always had and will probably always have the same opinion of James Franco - he is insanely hot, ridiculously talented, and an insufferable douche. that's ok with me though; I really don't care what his personality is like...
