Couldn't he have just written a poem or something?
As part of his upcoming art installation/exhibit in honor of James Dean at the Venice Biennale, James Franco carved deceased actor Brad Renfro's name into his arm.
We suppose the connection is that both Dean and Renfro were actors who died at a very young age?
Given Franco's history with unorthodox/bizarre art, we guess we shouldn't be TOO surprised that he'd do something like this, although the idea that he'd perform self-mutilation for art is a BIT troubling.
Good luck with the new art project James, but be careful!
We hope whatever carving tool you used was sterilized first…
What do U think about James Franco's tribute to Brad Renfro? Art? Insanity? A bit of both?
