Cindy Sherman Doesn't Rate James Franco's Art

Although she's flattered by the imitation.

So, James Franco has a new art thing. It's unsurprising that it's all about James Franco and includes poetry by James Franco. Franco, who was recently found to be trying to seduce a 17-year-old (for reasons that may not may not be film related) has a prolific portfolio of artistic endeavours, including his semen selfies. This new exhibition series features Franco (in some wigs) imitating the subjects of artist Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills, using the composition and attire of the original photographs.

It appears though, that it’s not quite Cindy Sherman's thing. When asked about her feelings towards the exhibition, she told Gallerist "I was flattered, I can only be flattered." She added, "I don't know that I can say it’s art." However, like Kimye she did express appreciation for that 'Bound 2' spoof, calling it "hysterical."
