Newsweek recently gathered the country's top-tier actors to discuss the artful craft of performance. Nicole Kidman talked about taking risks, Natalie Portman talked about dislocating a rib. But James Franco wasn't about to let this Q&A be dull. When Newsweek asked, "Is there a secret to landing a good kiss?" Franco delivered: "Anybody who has made a home sex tape knows what feels best doesn’t always look best," he explained. "I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, 'Oh, that looks horrible.' So you have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just doing it, they’re really selling it! It’s the same thing with a kiss. It’s not just the kiss that feels best, it’s an image. Something different is happening if it’s a good kiss." Now don't be disheartened if you thought Vulture had a copy and was going to embed it in this post. Any day now Franco could release this thing as some sort of commentary on the phenomenon of celebrity sex tapes, and we can all watch it as such. [Newsweek]
