As much as we rip on James Franco non-stop, we’ve always felt that his weird giggly brand of self-involvement does more good in the universe than ill. Like, for example, when James Franco buys a portrait of himself from a 13-year-old super fan. While the 127 Hours actor stopped by the Toronto International Film Festival Sunday to promote his art installation “Memories of Idaho” (sure, of course), he spotted Macy Armstrong‘s yarn portrait of him and, knowing great art when he sees his own face on it, asked to buy it. Earning a spot on the wall in James Franco’s Hall of James Francos is no joke; someone else’s homemade college is headed for the fireplace as we speak.
“Ohmygod I don’t know what just happened but I can’t breath! I gave James my art! And he has my email! And he’s seen my 127 Hours painting!! AHHHH,” Armstrong wrote on her James Franco Forever tumblr yesterday. “He looked at me, he spoke to me, and I’m pretty sure we mentally got married Everyone on the street thinks I’m crazy because Im freaking out! Its like a dream!” Oh man, mental marriage is exactly the kind of thing Franco would be into…but hopefully Macy can wait a few years before making him her official brain-husband.
