James Franco Talks Trying To Help Lindsay Lohan…And Why He Thinks She Just CANNOT Stay Out Of Trouble!

| Filed under: Lindsay LohanMusic MinuteFilm FlickersJames FrancoOscars

James Franco may be an actor, filmmaker, performance artist, poet, musician, and a student of MANY subjects…but there is one thing he seems to be unable to do!

And that is successfully help his friend Lindsay Lohan get her crazy effing life together!

He recently opened up about the last time he and the troubled, hard-pAArtying starlet touched based with each other - when he invited her to appear in the R.E.M. music video for Blue, which actually took place in February of 2011 - and revealed that since then, her behavior has been even too erratic and problematic for HIM in which to involve himself!

Ch-ch-check out the clip again (above)!

As he explains:

"So it was around the time of the Oscars and I was supposed to do these two videos. And for the "Blue" video, the original concept was to make it about two sides of L.A., the idea of L.A. as a place where people's dreams can come true, but also L.A. as a place that eats its young. It's something I've been interested in a lot. I've done a few projects about actors that have died young — James Dean, River Phoenix and Brad Renfro. Lindsay and I had reconnected at that time. I had been writing some poems about the Chateau Marmont and one or two of the poems involved Lindsay…I've known Lindsay for a while. It was at a moment where it seemed like she was doing OK. We'd have conversations on the phone, and she seemed like she was doing OK…I haven't talked to her in a long time because it seemed like she was getting into some more trouble. I've tried to help her. I think one of the reasons it's so hard is when she gets in trouble, she gets all this attention and I'm sure she gets book offers. Like she goes to jail, and instead of feeling like I really hit a low place, she'll get a crazy offer for her jail memoir."

Very inneresting!

We think you might be on to something, James!

Especially regarding how she responds to negative attention from the media! After all, at this point, it's the only consistent thing in her life!

Such a shame!

You can tell he really cares for you and wants to see her better!

But obviously, he realizes, as we imagine most people who know her have, that the only way she's going to move forward and fix her life is if she truly wants to…and can ensure that she surrounds herself with people who want to help her on that journey!

And for her sake, we truly hope she's able to somehow, someway do that!

    Franco is a pretentious, clueless, self-absorbed douche. Lohan makes choices. Lohan should have to face the consequences of those bad choices. Franco's musings are stupid.

    He may have a point. Why change when the best things that are coming to you come from when you do dumb sh*t? She is not young anymore. She still acts like she can blame away her behavior on her age or childhood in front of cameras or the fact her parents got divorced. To me she is just a junkie who needs to get it together and realize that there is more to life than being a tabloid starlet.
