Considering there’s James Franco! Worse Oscar Host Ever! coming from everywhere after the actor’s abysmal performance on Sunday, it’s no wonder Franco bailed as soon as the Oscars were done, not even staying to hang at his own after-party at The Writer’s Room in L.A. And it pains us to say this, because we have a massive crush on him, but no amount of endorphins could negate that train wreck of a show. Perhaps he already felt the disdain coming at him in the ether?
Can we also pause for a second at how pretentious it is for NYU and Yale man Franco to have a pahtay at “The Writer’s Room”. Yes, we all know you’re taking classes at both schools, James, you don’t have to remind us all the time that you’re different from the usual crop of sexy beasts. Ok? Sweet! Not so sweet for the likes of Seth Rogen and Kevin Spacey who showed up at the venue and found no Franco, who was already on his way to board a flight to New York. Franco’s new Twitter account had updates (he was live-tweeting from the Oscars as well) on his whereabouts in the form of photos. He tweeted a montage of shots on which he had doodled messages that read, “Goodbye L.A” and “It was fun! Time to head back to class!” It’s like… the opposite of “the dog ate my homework”. Whatevs! Maybe it’s a good thing for him to lie low for awhile.
