James Franco went to poetry class as usual after hearing about his Oscar nomination.
“I wouldn’t want to push it!” James said. “I got the announcement, and then I went on the Today show, then I walked down the street and went into class.”
Before the nominations were revealed, the 32-year-old actor insisted he wouldn’t skip classes at Yale to see if her was nominated and he was true to his word.
“I will be at school. I will be at Yale. Fox Searchlight asked me if I would go to New York to be ready… in case that I was nominated. I said no.” he told the Associated Press.
“I’m not gonna miss class to go and presume that I’m going to be nominated, but if you want to bring out a camera crew to Yale and wait and see if I get nominated, I’d be happy to step out of class and say I’m very grateful!”
