James Franco gives his fans a taste of his intimate knowledge of the acting world in upcoming novel Actors Anonymous. In this novel, Franco swaps the ‘alcoholics’ in Alcoholics Anonymous for ‘actors’ instead, focusing on the outrageous confessions of an actors support group.

“I used to care about how I looked. Now I don’t care so much. Maybe it’s because I’m so handsome,” recites Franco in an exclusive book trailer, where he and a few other actors perform a few of the confessions from the novel.


Reciting his own material, Franco can be quoted saying lines such as, “I used to care a lot about acting, but now I see you’re as only good as your material”, “I used to want to do a whole bunch of accents and physical impediments for a role, but now I don’t care. I want to be as simple as possible. Just slip into the world I’m in, and be as natural as possible”, or, “If you kiss a dude, you’re gay” during the book trailer, which gives the impression that it is a satire on his own acting career.

“Hollywood has always been a private club,” writes James Franco. “I open the gates. I say welcome. I say, Look inside.”

James Franco’s novel, Actors Anonymous, is to be released on October 15.
