James Franco Wants You To Cut Yourself — by Jen Carlson for Gothamist
Issue 14 of this thing called THE THING Quarterly came out today, and along with it, 100 Latama switchblades, just like the one James Franco cut himself with. The actor—who took over for this issue—carved the name Brad into his arm, in homage to his friend and fellow actor Brad Renfro, who died in 2008 from a heroin overdose. According to Flavorpill, the process, which left a red wound, “took about 20 minutes from start to finish.” If you purchase the issue, there’s also a little table mirror included in the package—just try not to get your cocaine on the red lipstick that Franco put on it.
Wow this is a little ridiculous, no?
