James Franco On Masturbating

In 127 Hours, James Franco plays real life mountaineer Aaron Ralston who had to cut his own arm off to free himself from under a big ass rock. I'm sure the film has a lot of memorable moments but people are already talking about a scene in which Aaron uses his other hand to release some tension, and some American journo decided to ask him about his pleasuring schedule. Thanks for that.

OK. You asked the question. [pause] I spend a fair amount of time alone, especially when I travel maybe to something like this or for work or whatever, but I’m in hotels a lot for a lot of my life. And I don’t mind it because I have a lot of stuff to do on my own. I have a lot of reading to do for school or whatever. [pause, laughs] You asked! So, when I’m alone, I do masturbate a lot. I don’t know why. It’s like you have those days where it’s just like, I have a ton of writing to do, or a ton of reading to do, and you’re just like, OK, I’m going to be on the couch all day or in bed all day just doing that… I tend to have a four- or five-time day. [breaks out laughing] So, I probably would have if I was stuck under a rock.

No seriously, thanks.
