James Franco praises ‘Spring Breakers’

And speaking of wankers, we haven't made fun of James Franco's bloated ego lately, so why not? He wrote a review of his own movie “Spring Breakers” in Vice and claimed that, “There will never be a movie or a character that is more important for this age than 'Spring Breakers' and its protagonist Alien” (he, of course, plays Alien).

Franco also claims that Werner Herzog said his performance in the film “made [Robert] De Niro in 'Taxi Driver' look like a kindergartener, and that the film was the most important film of the decade.” To quote Yoda, “Big cojones you have. Much self-awareness you lack.”
