James Franco, the man who does it all -- acting, directing, pursuing a PhD, making music videos -- has decided to make a documentary about pornography.
On a recent episode of "Conan," the Hollywood Renaissance man confessed to making an amateur porn tape with a girlfriend once, which got him thinking about porn actors.
"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,'" Franco said.
"Those people in pornos, they are great performers; they're not just doing it, they're selling it to an audience," he said. "They're performing so that an audience can get turned on by that kind of thing."
"My girlfriend and I didn't know that, so it was just kind of like weird movement. ... It was really boring," Franco said.
He went on to say that he's making a documentary about pornography, which will involve a San Francisco-based adult entertainment company.
"There's this amazing facility in San Francisco," he said, "They do everything in-house. They build their props in-house. It's an incredible place."
Which, most likely is the Mission District's own Kink.com.
"Kink.com is all aflutter today because James Franco is here shooting his new movie. All these girls want to f**k him! lol."
The tweet was deleted shortly thereafter.
