James Franco may be many things, but a porn addict isn’t one of them.

The actor isn’t even a part-time porn viewer.

At the New York premiere of The Deuce –┬áthe HBO drama in which Franco plays a man producing porn in the 1970s – Franco said he doesn’t watch the stuff at all.

He told US Weekly the surprising reason why he no longer hits up RedTube, saying:

I don’t know if you believe me or not. I watched it in my day. I certainly watched it as research for this show, but I don’t watch porn.

I have no moralistic stand against it by any means, but in unregulated capitalism – I think that’s one of the main points of our show – there’s always these people, a select few who sort of come out on top and the rest are just thrown under the bus.

My friend Rashida Jones came out with a documentary called Hot Girls Wanted a couple of years ago and I think the main point I took away from that film is that these young women are not protected. They have no union. It’s just completely unregulated.

Franco continued:

They got out in Florida and they’re just sort of ground up in a matter of months and just discarded, and nobody is there to protect them.

There’s no laws to protect them and that is very much the case in our show as well.

Might give it a crack myself.
