The King of Pop made it his mission in life to keep his children away from the spotlight. But now just like his sister Paris, Prince is joining the family business and starting early,More >
From the set of Spring Breakers comes this viral video of James Franco, looking like Kevin Federline pre-obesity and lip-syncing to “I Love You Like a Love Song.”
The actor was captured serenading the pop singer, his co-star in the upcoming film, while she shot a scene in the back seat of the car. Not distracting at all.
Not the highest quality video of all time, but if nothing else, it’s James Franco, in cornrows, rocking out to Selena Gomez. That’s hilarious enough:

“Rise of the Planet of the Apes” is on track to beat the experts’ predictions, as it earned $19.8 million on its first day in theatres.
The seventh movie of the “Planet of the Apes” franchise was tipped to make around $30 million but it reached two-thirds of that number in one day only. If it keeps on generating this kind of strong business, it could end up earning $50 million on its debut weekend.
“Rise of the Planet of the Apes” is a reboot movie that will serve as the base of a new movie series. The movie revolves around a scientist Will Rodman (played by James Franco), who creates aMore >
James Franco is one of the most popular actors currently working, but apparently not with his girlfriend. Jim says he and Ahna O’Reilly have split after five years together.
“It’s over,” the 33-year old Golden Globe winner tells reporters. “We’d been living together in L.A. and then came to New York to go school for two years. Then I signed up for more school at Yale. I think that was it for her.”
It’s not hard to see why she left – Jim attends classes at Yale, NYU and Columbia. All at once. He also carves out a career as a visual artist and writer, and sometimes fits in some acting in hisMore >
James Franco is the riding high on life, considered one of the most visible renaissance men of Hollywood. Between getting multiple degrees, acting in award-winning films, and being professor, Franco is now a selling artist.
But it’s not just any art. It’s invisible art. Say what?
The project is called “Museum of Non-Visible Art” and describes itself as “an extravaganza of imagination.” The artwork is entirely about ideas and invisible save for the description of what it is is supposed to be. It’s a play on a “parallel world” that we’ve created on entirely of images and words. Make sense yet?More >
It’s 4/20, baby. You know what that means, right? THG does.
Well, sort of. The origins of 420 are hotly debated, but no matter where the term came from, people associate it with smoking massive amounts of weed!
As such, the 20th day of April has become a de facto holiday.
With that in mind, The Hollywood Gossip salutes 10 famous individuals who have been known to puff the herb from time to time. Some even inhale …

Has Lindsay Lohan agreed strip down buck naked for a full-frontal photo spread in a “sex book” with James Franco of all people? That’s the rumor going around.
A rumor LiLo flatly denies, calling the whole idea “gross.”
Lohan tells friends she’d NEVER do a sex book despite reports she signed a multi-million dollar deal to pose with Franco in a series of “graphic” nude photos for a Madonna-esque book with photographer Terry Richardson.
Why would we ever assume Lindsay Lohan would pose nude?!
However, according to a TMZ report, Lohan HAS agreed to a milder photo shoot with Richardson … in aMore >
[HMG Celebrity News] – Sunday’s telecast of the Oscars was watched by 37.6-million people, and if sources close to the show are correct, James Franco and Anne Hathaway must have wished they were among them;
The pair seemed friendly on screen but insiders claim the two hated each other after days of tense and endless rehearsals;
“She had to provide all the energy – he was just phoning it in,” one snitch tells Us Magazine. “James seemed in his own little world.” says another. “The producers were pissed.”
In news that may add substance to these claims it’s known that 32-year old James skippedMore >
The 2011 Academy Awards sucked.
You’d be hard pressed to find a viewer who was legitimately entertained by James Franco and Anne Hathaway as hosts, or who was actually surprised at a single major winner.
Or who didn’t get the impression that Melissa Leo feigned shock when she heard her name announced, and then proceeded to pretend like she cursed by accident. In short: the entire event was a disaster.
With the exception of one comedy bit. The ceremony featured a humorous compilation of movie clips, from Toy Story 3 to Eclipse, Auto-Tuned in a montage posted here. Watch and laugh:More >
Television viewers awoke to two things this morning:
- The absolute trashing of James Franco as Oscars host.
- The appearance of Charlie Sheen on a pair of networks, blasting CBS, smoking and ducked questions about his drug connections.
First, Sheen gave an interview to The Today Show. In light of his status as a father of five, Sheen was asked whether he was ashamed of his behavior.
“God, no,” the actor replied. “Talk about an education!”
Should fans worry about Sheen’s health? No. He possesses “tiger blood” and “Adonis blood” and: “I’ve always had a plan andMore >
About an hour into the 2011 Academy Awards telecast, co-host James Franco walked on to the stage in a dress.
To viewers, this was likely seen as either an act of desperation or hilarity, as he also tossed in a joke about Charlie Sheen, turning to Anne Hathaway and quipping: ”You got to wear a tuxedo so I wore this. The weird thing is I just got a text message from Charlie Sheen.”
Cue… laughter? Or eye rolling?
You tell us. Did the use of actors over comedians work for the ceremony? Or were you more entertained by Tweeting during the event than by what Hathaway and Franco were actuallyMore >
