James Franco Makes People Pass Out

There's really not a lot that James Franco can't do. Act? Check. Write. Check. Art? Check. Drag? Checkity check! His talent is so seemingly overwhelming that he now is making people faint. At a screening of his new movie, 127 Hours hosted by Vanity Fair Editor Graydon Carter, the actor's turn as mountain climber Aaron Lee Ralston (remember he had to amputate his arm after it was trapped in Utah?) had the audience sobbing. Franco announced that Ralston told him the self mutilation "felt like shoving your entire arm in molten lava," and, apparently he pretty much nailed the scene—one viewer fainted during the on-screen amputation. We swear, it wasn't us. (New York Post)
