We see this time and time again in Hollywood (and in life!)–a younger sibling trying to break out from an older sibling's shadow!
Dave Franco has been desperately trying to forge his own path in the entertainment world, and is both grateful for James Franco’s guidance and frustrated that most people merely see him as an extension of his older brother.
In a recent interview, he spilled on being the younger sibling of an Oscar-nominated Hollywood big shot:
“It’s been a blessing and a curse. At first, James helped me get a manager, which I don’t take for granted. It’s a big thing. But then, no one’s going to hire me just because I’m James’ little brother—I have to prove myself! I respect him so much, but I want to carve my own path. I don’t want to be known as James Franco’s little brother for the rest of my life. I have since noticed a slight change. At least half the people I meet now know me as Dave, which is fine. I’m slowly getting to the point where I can be my own person.”
As difficult as it may be for Dave at times, we think the hottie will probably break away from his brother’s image sooner than later. His upcoming lead role in Now You See Me should be a great start!!
The only thing that ties them together for us is that they definitely look related, and both are INSANELY attractive, LOLz!!!
We’re looking forward to watch this young actor come into his own!
