He may be the hottest actor in Hollywood right now and an Oscar nominee, but James Franco is not an elitist.

Aside from serious roles in movies such as "Howl" and "127 Hours," he's down for starring in everything from college films to daytime TV. And while chatting with Newsweek magazine, he added an adult film to his resume. He confesses that he made a sex tape when he was 19 years old, which gave him a deep respect for porn stars.
"I think if anybody who has made a home sex tape knows," he says. "What feels best doesn't always look best. I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, 'Oh, that looks horrible.' You have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just doing it, they're really selling it."
We highly doubt a 19-year-old James Franco couldn't sell sex. But, hey, we haven't seen the tape.
