James Franco Pays Bizarre Tribute To Brad Renfro In New Art Exhibit

james franco pays bizarre tribute to brad renfro

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?

    as weird as carving may sound, it's a type of body modification, more power to him for doing it on himself

    Seems like the guy will do anything for attention. No amount of college will disguise the fact that this guy is a self absorbed tool.

    all the hotness he ever posessed has been depleted.

    I think it's about mother effing time that someone gives Brad the attention he deserves. Obviously they had a strong bond which first started during the filming of Deuces Wild and James is my hero for doing this. Bizarre, insane, whatever you want to call it, I think it's an amazing tribute. After all these years, it's nice to know someone else still cares about him so deeply. Brad, we still love you and think of you often!!! -The BBR Crew

    used to think franco was pretty hot………not so much anymore…..the weirdo antics have totally taken over any sex appeal he ever had.



  7. 7

    He's beginning to have that crazed unhinged look to him……there's nothing amazing about this "tribute", it's just disturbing.

    Fucking dilettante.
