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, jamesfrancoforever.tumblr.com:“Everyone on the street thinks I’m crazy because I’m freaking out! It’s like a dream.”
Oh James Franco, you dawg.
