Rob Pattinson Turns James Franco Down For a Project!

James asked Rob to contribute to his piece in a major art exhibit but, apparently, the ‘Twilight’ heartthrob ‘didn’t get the point’!

James Franco is an actor, director, writer, and student so it’s no surprise he’d stretch himself even further into the world of contemporary art. James is participating in the invite-only Venice Biennale art exhibit, but apparently fellow-actor Robert Pattinson thinks the 127 Hours star should stick to acting!
In an interview with Playboy, James revealed plans for his project, to be presented at the Venice, Italy, art exhibit, but admitted that not everyone was a fan of his ideas!

“It’s a huge project I’m incredibly honored and proud to be presenting,” said James, “It’s based on Rebel Without a Cause, and some of the best contemporary artists alive—Paul McCarthy, Douglas Gordon, Ed Ruscha, Aaron Young, Damon McCarthy and Harmony Korine—worked on different sections. I wanted Robert Pattinson to be in the project, but when Harmony (Rebel’s director) contacted him and told him the concept, Rob said, ‘I don’t get the point,’ so that was that.”

But it seems the actors’ creative differences stop there. James went on to admit his desire to star in one of the Twilight films, featuring none other than Rob himself!

“I had my agent tell [director] Bill Condon that I’d be happy to do anything in Breaking Dawn, but that was because it was supposed to be part of a multimedia project at Yale,” said James, “I was working with a Yale undergraduate who had written an autobiographical play about putting on a theatrical production of Twilight in which I was a character. So I was interested in Twilight because I was going to be part of that play. I thought what a great connection it would be if I were also involved with the real Twilight.”

We may not be able to travel to Venice to see Pineapple Express star’s art exhibit, but we’d sure love to see James and Rob hit the silver screen together!

I like Franco, but I hate Twilight and all of its cast. So, please….. do NOT put them together on anything. That would ruin Franco’s career.

I love them both, but Franco is above Twilight. That would do nothing for his career.
