Aww, Bruce Vilanch Hurt James Franco’s Feelings

You see that beautiful creation above?  That’s how James Franco deals with his emotions.  Isn’t that sweet?

James posted the picture to his Twitter for a hot minute last night after Bruce Vilanch, Oscar writer and totally recognizable dude, had some words to say about James’ not-so-awesome performance at the Academy Awards:

“He has so many balls in the air, he didn’t get to town till Thursday before the show on Sunday,” Vilanch said. “And so we e-mailed a lot. But we had a lot of meetings. He had a bunch of people who were writing for him, and if it had been him alone, it would have been different. But it was him and Anne Hathaway, and they both had to be serviced. So there was a lot of communication beforehand. But he didn’t get there.”

That being said, he didn’t self sabotage. “I was with him, and he wasn’t high. And I asked him, ‘Are you high, and can I have some?’ And he said no to both,” Vilanch said.

Poor James Franco.  Bruce didn’t really say anything too harsh, but I can see where James’ feelings got hurt – he just wants to be the best at everything.  That’s all he’s ever wanted.

I can’t decide what the weirdest part of this story is:  that James Franco feels the need to express himself through MS Paint, that he apparently wasn’t high during the Oscars, or that people are still talking about the Oscars.  Thoughts?
