Actor James Franco was nearly on the verge of quitting his profession as he made a series of bad movie choices post
, which left him devastated. The
actor believes that he didn’t make the right choices post
movies, leading him to consider to quit acting,
“Things were happening fast, and maybe they were happening too fast. I was getting a lot of offers, but I wasn’t always making the right choices. Although I always worked very hard on the characters, I wasn’t really interested in them as movies. If I hadn’t been in them, I wouldn’t have gone to see them,” he said. “I said to myself, you know, if this is how acting is going to be, I really can’t do this anymore. I needed to make a change. So I made a lot, actually,” said the actor.
The 32-year-old hunk continued to face problems with his job as he was clueless how to collaborate with people. “Right before
, you know, I was having a really hard time. Acting was not fun. It was a really painful process because, I’d have these very strong acting teachers with very strong personalities help me with the scripts. And that was just a mess, because then I’d get on the set and the director would have his ideas. I really didn’t know how to serve two masters,” he said.
