James Franco Claims He Got Drugged Last Night: “Somebody Slipped Me Something”
James Franco has made plenty of movies about doing drugs, but now the mercurial actor claims he was actually drugged by someone else last night.
The 35-year-old James — who stars in recent films Homefront and This Is the End — posted a video to Instagram on December 15 in which he claims to have been drugged by someone the night before.
"What's up," a shirtless and groggy James says to the camera while he's in bed. "Got drugged last night."
So what exactly happened? "Somebody slipped me something," James continues. "In bed." James finishes by making a strange sound with his mouth.
It's unclear what to make of this video. James is known for being a performance artist and for pulling practical jokes — not to mention his recent appearance in the humorous parody of Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video — so it's hard to know whether to take James's claim about being drugged seriously.
Indeed, if James really were drugged, it would seem that he would go to the police about this, rather than posting a somewhat playful Instagram video about it. Plus, the fact that James pans the camera to show off his bare nipple makes the video seem like a prank.
If he was in fact drugged, he wish him all the best as he recovers, and we hope that whomever is responsible will face the consequences.
Do you think he was really drugged? Or is this just a joke?
