Someone get James Franco a mint! The 40-year-old actor is the latest celeb to get slammed for his kissing skills by a co-star. Zoey Deutch, who starred alongside James in the comedy Why Him?, revealed that she was not impressed at all on Watch What Happens Live.
"Meh," she responded when asked to describe James' kissing style. She also described his breath as "not good" and agreed when host Andy Cohen called the kiss "not memorable." It is surprising that Zoey dissed James' makeout ability, seeing as Busy Phillips, who was the Spiderman star's first on-screen kiss, had only nice things to say. "[James] was definitely my first on-screen kiss," she told InStyle. "Part of what was so genius about that show was that we were all fairly young — I didn't know anything. So for on-screen kisses, I was like, 'I guess you just kiss the person like you would kiss your boyfriend.' So we made out. He was great to make out with!"
Earlier this year, several women came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against the Oscar nominee. Sarah Tither-Kaplan, who was one of his acting students, claimed James once removed the safety guards (used to protect an actor's modesty) while filming an oral sex scene for the film The Long Home. "I got it in my head pretty quickly that, OK, you don’t say ‘no’ to this guy,” she told the Los Angeles Times. "I feel there was an abuse of power, and there was a culture of exploiting non-celebrity women, and a culture of women being replaceable."
However, James has denied the allegations. "Look, in my life I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I have done," he said on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. "I have to do that to maintain my well being. The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate. But I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long. So I don’t want to shut them down in any way."
Unfortunately, James is not the first celeb to be called out their lackluster on-screen kissing. Scroll through the gallery below for more bad famous bad kissers!
