Dave Franco Shares a Poem About His Grandma

21 Jump Street persona Dave Franco is in GQ's new Style Bible, and the magazine interviewed him for the issue. And just when it seemed like writer Lauren Bans wouldn't seize anything nearly as titillating as she did in that insane Kreayshawn profile, she gets Franco to reveal he dabbles (or at least dabbled, in high school) in writing, just like his big bro. "I would write a poem out in the most simple terms, and then I would go through the thesaurus and find these elite replacements for them," Franco says. Then Bans delightfully coaxes him to share one such juvenile work, from memory: "When I look into my grandma's eyes / I see the light of day / When she looks back at me / She sees herself, I hope." It's ... it's good, Dave.
