James Franco relates to ‘Oz the Great & Powerful’
JAMES Franco grew up with dreams of greatness similar to those yearned for by his title character in ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’.
He said: “He dreams about becoming great, becoming recognised, and when I was younger those were things I dreamed about too.”
Over a decade into his acting career, James realised he wasn’t measuring success in the right way and his perception has shifted which, he suggested, mirrors the development of the wizard.
He explained to the Sunday Telegraph newspaper’s Seven magazine: “After 16 years in the business, I’ve come to understand success in a different way.
“I think I have had a chance of heart and changed the way I do things, just like Oz does.”
It is a realisation which altered his perception and approach to acting, particularly with regards to how he admittedly “overstepped” his boundaries as an actor. BANG!
