Get this man a bulldog sweatshirt, he's a Yale man now!

Coming to the end of his time at Columbia in New York means that James Franco had to start thinking about which school he would like to sleep his way through to get a PhD. His first choice - Yale University and according to their rag newspaper, he's taken the pineapple express right to their front door and pulling into their English department!

How prestigious! Plus, we bet the chairs in the lecture halls are ideal for nap time!

Congrats, James!

    I wanna go down on him soooo bad… (would work my way to the back door in no time ;)



  2. 2

    "sleep his way through to get a PhD" — Wow.. Someone's really bitter about higher education… PhD students don't sleep Perez. They work a lot harder than you ever have.

    Re: DaisyAdair

    Agreed. Jealous much, Mario?

    Sleep his way through a Ph.D.???? Good fucking luck with that sparky. All you do is not sleep, read all the time and write constantly. The most grueling years of my life, bitches.



  5. 5

    Wow, even when a celebrity is doing something good and productive with their time, you still find a way to shit all over it. I suppose it would be better if he was stumbling around Hollywood, coked up and banging an assortment of famewhores? At least this young, handsome and talented actor has some integrity. Grow up Perez.



  6. 6

    Shouldn't you be commending him on doing something worth while. It's not like he's some pathetic queer who has made money with no talent but by writing horrible things about all of hollywood.

    What the fuck do you know about higher education? You can't even spell simple words correctly. PHDs take years of hard work and research. Why don't you stick to commenting about things you know, like jacking off or what the inside of Lady GaGa's ass smells like.

    Why would you put him down for this? He has his head on straight and isn't stuck on himself from all appearances. This is GOOD…damn, you're a jealous bitch aren't you? In other news — he is the most perfectly gorgeous man…has a Johnny Depp mass appeal. YUM.



  9. 9

    get your facts right. James Franco is currently at NYU, not columbia. A simple google search would have told you that.



  10. 10

    Perez is jealous because he's not college material. LOL.



  11. 11

    What an amazing dude.



  12. 12

    I remember how I spent my studying years. I didn´t sleep at all. Congratulations to Mr. Franco for his great efforts. He know that higher education opens up the doors of consciousness for the rest of our lives.



  13. 13

    Intellectual guys are the best…especially English majors!!



  14. 14

    Jealous much? wow..talking about slamming higher education……not that any of us need more, right?????



  15. 15

    good for him. And, Perez (or whoever is writing this crap)… you sound like a Sarah Palin-esque teabagger yapping about the educated elite.



  16. 16

    Higher education is one of the noblest aspirations. And, Ivy League colleges are the greatest place to acquire knowledge.



  17. 17

    wow, he just got a million times hotter! good for him :) i wish i had the time, energy, or money to do my PhD… doing my Master's was tough enough… way to go!!!

    I work a t a colledge Mr. Hilton and the only time these students have time to sleep is in class. Most just watch the lectures online anyway.

    That pic of him sleeping just means hes working hard and educating himself, something your writers and spell checkers could take a lesson from.



  19. 19

    chill out guys the sleeping comment is only a reference to a picture someone took of him sleeping in class last year



  20. 20

    Re: fiercebunny – actually he attended columbia for writing and tisch for filmmaking. you could have found that out with a simple google search.



  21. 21

    He's going to NYU and Columbia concurrently. I graduated from UCLA with him. He told me personally when he got into each program. Of all the classes I've taken with him, he never slept. Funny thing is, he usually sleeps 2 hours a night because he's so busy working on school work, writing novels and short stories, and researching roles/memorizing lines. Crazy James! Good for you!



  22. 22

    I am surprised I am the only person wondering how he gets into these schools.
    I would like to have seen his grades to get into Columbia and what he is using to get into Yale besides his handsome face and famous name.
    I think it is all Bull$hit.



  23. 23

    yummmmy and smart: UberHawt.

    He does look a little malnourished…or stoned LOL

    post that article, Perez, from Yale. I'd like to make sure you're not sensationalizing anything…as you tend to do.



  24. 24

    uh he won't be sleeping much at ALL. and he won't be in any lecture halls either, unless he's teaching. PhD students work in small group settings and very closely with their teams of mentor professors for research and writing. i wonder what his dissertation will be on!! very sexy :)

    Re: kgbmommalove – Why would you assume he's not smart enough to get into these programs? Because he's portrayed funny stoners in movies? Do you also think that Christian Bale is actually Batman? You're an idiot, unless you actually know him in person, you cannot make an assumption like that. People like you drive me nuts… try commending a person for doing good for the world and bettering himself. Would you rather him be a lazy piece living off medical assistance "looking" for a job??



  26. 26

    Re: kgbmommalove – Can we say he has enough money to pay for his education, so why are you worried how he got in? It isnt like he took a scholarship away from someone in need and by him paying for his full tuition that means he may appreciate his education.

    More people should be so lucky to have the financial ability to go to the college of their choice, education is a luxury. Unfortunately because so many graduates default on thier student loans and that pushes interest rates high having an effect on everyone that wishes to continue with thier education. So dont hate him because he got in and can pay…hate on those that waste their college scholarship and flunk out because that does happen.

    Re: Canukian
    hahahaha. spot on.
    pop culture hates education. it's economics 101, if you know what I mean.



  28. 28

    Nice he has brains and beauty what more can a girl ask for? Jealous Much Perez ? Congrats James!!



  29. 29

    Am I the only one that thinks he looks sickly? Might be bad lighting, but I have seen several pics of him as of late and he just looks not well. Congrats on the Yale thing.



  30. 30

    Why the fuck would you assume he has to sleep his way through? You realize there really are educated and intelligent people in the world right? No, you probably don't.



  31. 31

    No PhD program in the world would just let somebody into their program who is undeserving. You work intensely with a small group of students and professors who know exactly what you are doing at every moment. They don't care at all about tuition…in fact most PhD students pay very little to go to school because they are such a vital resource for universities. Learn a little about higher education.
