We're not surprised that he's immune to criticism. You've gotta have a thick skin to expose yourself like James did on Flaunt magazine! Ha!
During James Franco's interview with Flaunt, he opens up about his art and addresses hate from the critics:
"I don't think what I'm doing is confusing. What is confusing is that I'm an actor in mainstream film and the people that usually comment on mainstream film are idiots, and they don't try to think outside of their pop-culture commentaries."
"It's so easy to criticize contemporary art from the outside: 'Douglas Gordon slowed down Psycho so it's 24 hours long? That's easy! I can do that.' That's how the morons in the blogosphere try to critique my work. But the great thing about it is, is that their critiques are part of my work. I like that they are confused. I like that they make fun of what I'm doing. It's a beautiful reflection of where our culture is at the moment."
And here's what James had to say about his upcoming Rebel Without a Cause themed shoot:
"One of the reasons I've enjoyed working on Rebel is that it allowed for the unpolished side to come out. That's what I think about each art project. Where does the unforeseeable come in? Where do the mistakes come in? Where does the human come in?"
We certainly appreciate your commitment to your art, James! The whole world might not understand it, but we think it's important to express yourself…as long as you're not hurting yourself, that is.
What do U think? Do U support James Franco's unorthodox art projects???
