James Franco is one of the most divisive figures in Hollywood today. Some see him as an uber-handsome multi-faceted actor in the Marlon Brando vein, who has achieved success on both the big budget and the indie film level. Others feel as though he is simply a douche. We see both sides of the argument. His latest movie Spring Breakers opens today, where he plays Alien, a gun toting drug dealer with corn rows. In other words, something of a douche. So in honor of his latest role, we’ve decided to count down our 12 favorite douchey moments from Mr. Franco. We kid because we love. Enjoy!
12. This Creepy Spring Breakers Promo Pic
It aimed for hot, but it just freaked us out.
11. Beef With NYU Professor
James’ NYU professor was allegedly fired after he gave the actor a “D” in his class. For his part, Franco missed 12 out of the 14 classes, and referred to the prof as “an awful teacher.” We imagine the twitpic from above was from one of the 2 classes he did attend.
10. Ruining Threesomes For Vanessa Hudgens
V-Hudge’s threesome scene with Franco was apparently so awkward that it put her off them for life. “It was very nerve-racking for me. I told my agent that I never want to do it ever again.” We point the finger at Franco for this one.
