James Franco has reprised his obnoxious chat show host Dave Skylark from upcoming comedy movie The Interview for a hilarious new three-minute online video, in which he chats to Zac Efron about masturbating.
The 127 Hours star, in character as clueless Skylark, pretends to be shocked in the clip as the former High School Musical star reveals he pleasures himself 17 times a day and has mastered masturbating with his knees while driving. Efron shows off his skill by 'climaxing' as he chats to the bogus host on his fake show Skylark Tonight, prompting Franco's amazed character to state, "That was incredible."
Asked about his morning routine, Efron then adds, "Sometimes I wake up and I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, and you think, 'Who is this guy...?' And then it's there. Then you can brush your teeth." Franco, as Skylark, then asks his guest if he thinks he has a problem, to which Efron responds, "The Middle East has problems, I have a solution."
The spoof interview has hit the Internet as part of the promotional push for Franco and Seth Rogen's new film, which is released at Christmas (14).
In The Interview, Skylark and his jaded producer are recruited to assassinate Kim Jong-un after they are offered the chance to interview the North Korean dictator as part of a TV special.
James Franco joined Kim Kardashian's Break The Internet campaign by appearing in a bizarre webchat to carry out strange requests from fans, including twerking, performing a monologue to a kitten and filming a make-up tutorial.
The 127 Hours actor completed the task on Monday (17Nov14) as part of the drive by Paper Magazine which started with Kardashian's now infamous nude photograph on the cover of the latest issue.
During the webchat, Franco sat in a hotel room surrounded by props, including a tutu, bunny ears and a Christmas sweater, while speaking to fans who ordered him to carry out bizarre tasks. One female caller asked the star, "Can you please make out with me for one minute... Make the kissy face" and Franco responded by squirting whipped cream into his mouth and kissing a sock puppet for a prolonged amount of time before the caller asked him to stop.
Franco was also asked to paint a number of portraits, so he used whipped cream, peanut butter and jam to depict his friend and frequent co-star Seth Rogen.
He was often scathing about the requests, calling them "boring" and even dubbed one of the participants a "weirdo".
When asked to do impressions of Looney Tunes cartoon characters, he replied, "Great fantasy there.. I don't do f**cking 1950s cartoons."
Rapper Kanye West and his new wife Kim Kardashian fell foul of the fashion elite in Paris, France on Thursday (25Sep14) when they were booed for showing up late for a Lanvin presentation.
The celebrity couple reportedly turned up 40 minutes behind schedule, forcing event producers to hold up the Paris Fashion Week runway show until their arrival. Their tardy entrance prompted a pool of photographers to heckle West and Kardashian as they made their way to their front row seats, but the outspoken hip-hop star refused to let the jeers slide and instead confronted the snappers to defend the couple.
Walking up to the group, he said, "(Lanvin designer) Alber (Elbaz) asked to see us. Don't boo us. We're not late, we're not late!"
The incident occurred just hours after Kardashian was ambushed by notorious red carpet prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who threw himself at the reality star's feet and attempted to tackle her to the ground as she arrived to attend the Balmain showcase on Thursday morning.
You know what an “ugly cry” is, right? It’s when a person is crying so hard, they have no control over their face, and even if they’re the prettiest person in the world, they somehow manage to look ugly. If you’ve never seen it, and you think you’ve never done it (you have), don’t worry. There’s been plenty of these moments caught on camera for us to enjoy.
