James Franco Claims He Attempted Suicide After Trump’s Election

Hollywood actor-and-director James Franco claims the election of Donald Trump affected him so badly that he was driven to attempt suicide.

Hollywood actor-and-director James Franco claims the election of Donald Trump affected him so badly that he was driven to attempt suicide.

I mean, I’ve been reacting really badly!” Franco told the Daily Beast in an interview to promote his latest film, I Am Michael. “I’ve spiraled into a depression and I’ve been questioning everything that I am, and how I’ve been doing things.”

The arrival of I Am Michael—a film that needs heavy promotion—in theaters and on-demand seems to have helped take Franco’s mind off his psychological suffering and put an end to his wallowing in self-pity.

Franco is currently making the media rounds to promote the bio drama, which follows a gay activist who rejects his homosexuality after accepting God.

During the election campaign the 38-year-old Hollywood darling endorsed Hillary Clinton via a parody video of the famous Dos Equis beer “Most Interesting Man in the World” commercials.

She’s the most interesting woman in the world,” Franco says in the ad, which first appeared on his personal Instagram page.

    Disgusting way to promote his new film.

    Oregon has legalized euthanasia, get your self a bus and fill it with your liberal snowflake friends and make a party of it, a group exodus if you will.
    What pathetic spineless TARD’s you FAKEWOOD people are.

    Mr. Franco you’re a very weak individual if HRC losing the election has affected you so badly. And you sound like a little whining bitch when crying about it. Why not consider all the conservatives in America who just endured 8 years of the worst liberal POTUS in US history? I’ve read that you’re homosexual and I’d suggest that is why your hopes and dreams hung on lying, crooked Hillary. HRC & Obama were behind almost any kind of perversion that mankind can dream up. That’s right James, I’m 100% opposed to the LGBT movement in whatever form it slithers across America. Liberalism will undermine this nation given enough time and eventually destroy it. God Bless America & Go Trump!

    I’m not going to speak ill of anyone “feeling suicidal”, there is help for you out there. However, this just smacks of someone who has the entitlement mentality and is unable to cope with the real world!

    • dvallin

      You are kind Kimberly and I agree with you. However, how sorry can you be for someone who is suicidal about a presidential election? He must have other demons, yet he had to play the Donald Trump card to justify his actions. Celibs are losing sympathy. #boycottHwood

    “Attempted suicide” is the biggest misnomer. Just call it what it is, temper tantrum.

    • Susan Lyons

      Probably held his breath until he passed out. Think that would qualify?

  • texasbean13

    Ask Mr. Franco does he need any help?

  • Jim Lahey

    If at first you don’t succeed TRY TRY TRY AGAIN!

  • Brian Smith

    Couldn’t even do that right!

  • Jeremy Peace

    Don’t give up bro, keep trying. HE NEED SOME MILK!!!!

  • Rajib Ranjan Das

    He must have used a leaky bucket to sink his head.

  • Brendon McCallum

    Well. Don’t give up now. You know what they say. If at first you dont succeed, try and try again. I have shotgun and will provide you with a 3 inch rifled slug if you’d like. It would work out great for both of us really. You could die and avoid reality because it must be fucking terrible living your life and I could sell my shotgun. God knows it would be worth something to someone with your blood all over it!!

    Who cares what James Franco thinks? That said, check out the responses from Trump’s nasty idiot fans here – great for a laugh. What a bunch of psychopaths – er, I mean, “Christians.” LOL! But I guess I’d be pissed too if I voted for Hitler and it was all blowing up in my face.

  • whatadickhead

    what a Dickhead……somebody buy the Dickhead a Happy Meal….supersize him ffs….lol.

  • Black Swan

    What a moron, slit your wrists and sit in a bathtub for success.

  • Mari

    He thinks Hillary is the most interesting woman in the world. She’s interesting when you find out the plethora of crimes she’s committed and gotten away with, otherwise she’s a cunning, lying murderess. This guy has some real problems.
