James Franco is enchanted by the lovely Lana Del Rey.
Franco himself is an artist of many mediums and can appreciate the deep, dark crevices of Lana Del Rey’s mind that slowly become apparent in her music and style.
But, will the two ever collaborate?
James Franco hopes so.
He wrote of her mystique, “I wanted to interview Lana for a book and she said, ‘Just write around me, it’s better if it’s not my own words. It’s almost better if you don’t get me exactly, but try.”
James Franco went on to talk of a possible film collaboration.
“She has this idea for a film. I want to do it because it’s a little like Sunset Boulevard. A woman is alone in a big house in LA. She doesn’t want to go out. She starts to go crazy, and becomes paranoid because she feels like people are watching her. Even in her own house.”
He added, “It’s like an awesome B-movie that lives in Lana’s head. It’s about her, and it’s not about her. Just like her music.”
Even back in December, James Franco was gushing about Lana Del Rey and her music to Howard Stern. I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that she is absolutely beautiful, either.
“There’s a weird thing with creative types,” James Franco said. “Sometimes I love a person’s work and, like, I’m just so enamored with that and their persona in their work. But outside of that, it’s like, our dynamic is we’re just kind of friends, we get along so well. But all this sexual attraction is for the person and the work.”
