James Franco Is Still Better Than You

At this point, I think it’s safe to say that James Franco is better than all of us. And I say that without any resentment. It’s just the truth. James Franco is a beautiful, talented soul, and we might as well be made of shit. Truth!

But did you know that James Franco is also better than all other celebrities, and basically every other person working in Hollywood? Specifically, he’s better than everyone who worked on the latest Spiderman movie.

Here’s what he had to say about it:

“Eh,” Franco told MTV with his signature smirk and a shrug. “I mean, they could have strayed a little bit more from the original. It’s like, ‘Why?’ Well, I guess they made a lot of money. Congrats. But good for them…Sam and I moved on, we made Oz.”

See? He was in three Spiderman movies, and one video game, but the difference is that he was in the original. He was in the ORIGINAL Spiderman. The movie that he was in with Tobey Maguire was just so creative, so cutting edge! Like, some regular guy was just being regular, but then he develops all these super powers after getting bitten by some weird spider! How did they even come up with that? SO original.

And I love that last little zinger James Franco made: he moved on to make another astoundingly original movie about some wizard in some magical place called Oz! Flying monkeys, even! Where do they come up with this stuff?!

  • Whatever gets you through the day, I guess. I suppose if he needs to think he’s the most special person on Earth we may as well let him. He’delusional, of course, but he’s not really hurting anyone.

  • Dear James, first of all, the new Spiderman movie is waaaay better than the ones you were in (I haven’t finished the last half hour because we tried to watch it late last night and the bun in my oven makes it impossible for me to stay up that late, but what I have seen before is waaaaay better than the Dopey Maguire ones). Second of all, STFU.
