This is the reason James Franco doesn’t watch porn anymore

Despite starring in a film about the gay porn industry, James Franco has admitted that he doesn’t actually watch any type of adult movies himself.

The American star played gay porn producer Joe Kerekes in crime-drama King Cobra last year, while also currently playing both Vincent Martino and Frankie Martino in HBO’s The Deuce which tells the story of the legalisation and rise of the porn industry in New York in the 1970s.

However, while he may have watched adult entertainment to prepare for both roles, he revealed that he doesn’t watch it in his personal time.

“I don’t know if you believe me or not. I watched it in my day. I certainly watched it as research for this show. [But] I don’t watch porn,” he told US Weekly.

“I have no moralistic stand against it by any means, but in unregulated capitalism, I think that’s one of the main points of our show.

“There’s always these people, a select few who sort of come out on top and the rest are just thrown under the bus.”

He added: “My friend Rashida Jones came out with a documentary called Hot Girls Wanted a couple of years ago and I think the main point I took away from that film is that these young women [in porn] are not protected.

“They have union. It’s just completely unregulated. They go out to Florida and they’re just sort of ground up in a matter of months and just discarded, and nobody is there to protect them.

“There’s no laws to protect them and that is very much the case in our show as well.”

The Deuce premiered earlier this month and will run for eight episodes until the end of October.
