Yesterday James Franco, actor (and apparently writer) came to Montreal for a book signing as part of his new novel Actors Ananymous
I know what you're thinking. Yes, you were in the exact same city as James Franco, and yes, given proper preparations you could finally have kidnapped him as your husband-love slave.
I, and the rest of Montreal, are right there with you.
Naturally, the Twitter-sphere blew up with MTL-Francomania. There were a lot of dumb bitches (male and female) spouting silliness like "Franco was in Montreal and I didn't know :(" who I have no sympathy for. Get informed.
Then there these gems. Read on, laugh, and even grow jealous knowing some actually saw the Franco in person.
A 'little' enthusiasm, to get things started
HOLY MOTHER OF JESUS JAMES FRANCO IS IN MONTREAL

Truly, I asked myself the same question.
JAMES FRANCO IS IN MONTREAL UM EXCUSE ME EX FUCKING CUSE ME WHY AREN'T I EATING FINGER FOODS WITH HIM WHILE INSTAGRAMING — kiara maybe??????? (@stylesobrien_) February 7, 2014
I hope this is a lie. That way I won't have to be insanely jealous she touched the Franco's chest
Ran into James Franco while leaving school, he was overly excited that I signed his chest. #givingbacktothefans #jamesfranco #montreal

When a crazy person has a will, a crazy person will find a way. I'm talking about myself, of course.
