Celebrated actor James Franco is not known as a wallflower, and his latest interview — part of Bravo's Inside the Actors Studio — is yet another demonstration of his unabashed honesty.

Franco discussed researching his role in 2002's Sonny, in which he plays a gigolo. The actor hung around with a male prostitute, who took him on one of his jobs — Franco actually watched the action go down, so to speak. The entire interview airs next month on Bravo.
