James Franco Talks “Actors Anonymous” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”
The “Oz: The Great and Powerful” hunk chatted about his teaching gigs at UCLA and USC while also discussing his new book “Actors Anonymous.”
Franco noted, "The structure's based on a recovery book, like Alcoholics Anonymous. Not because I think acting is an addiction. It's more looking at, um ... a recovery program, once you get over addiction is sort of like looking at your life to see what led to the addiction.”
“So it's looking at acting, specifically it's acting, and I'm an actor in Hollywood, and looking at all the specifics of that, but looking to be able to kind of extrapolate from that and say, 'Well, when I say acting, it's more like life in the sense that when you're an actor, you're just interacting with other actors in an imaginary circumstance.’ Well, it's not that big of a leap to say, ‘Well, life is just interacting with other people in the world.’ So it's looking at acting as a kind of way of looking at life."
