James Franco buys James Franco artwork from a 13-year old girl

Macy Armstrong's James Franco masterpiece

James Franco stopped by at the Toronto International Film Festival for a short visit on Sunday, to talk about his new art installation, Memories of Idaho, but he ended up with a homemade art made by a local fan.

Franco noticed the three pieces of art made by 13-year old Macy Armstrong: A franco collage made of old newspaper articles, a portrait made of yarn and a homage canvas to the 127 Hours poster.

Franco turned to Macy and said: “I saw that one on the Internet, someone sent it to me. I wanna buy those.”

Macy was okay with that, obviously: “Of course, I would love him to have them, I’m a humongous fan. For his birthday, I made him a cake.”

Then it got a little teenage-obsessive weird: “He looked at me, he spoke to me, and I’m pretty sure we mentally got married!” Macy wrote on her blog,“Everyone on the street thinks I’m crazy because I’m freaking out! It’s like a dream.”

Oh James Franco, you dawg.
