Franco to make porn documentary
"I actually am very interested in pornography... I watch it, who doesn't? I'm making a documentary on pornography. There's this amazing facility in San Francisco... They do everything in house, they build their props in house. It's an incredible place," Dailystar quoted Franco as saying.
The '127 Hours' star once shot a sex tape with his girlfriend and was so disappointed with the result, he vowed never to make another one. The experience gave him a new respect for porn stars.
"When I was young, I got a video camera and my girlfriend and I decided to film ourselves and watched it back and said, 'Yeah, well, let's never watch that again'," he said.
"Those people in pornos, they are great performers; they're not just doing it, they're selling it to an audience... They're performing so that an audience can get turned on by that kinda thing. My girlfriend and I didn't know that, so it was just kinda like weird movement... It was really boring," he added.
