James Franco returned to education in 2006 when he enrolled in UCLA in California as an English major and has subsequently studied and taught a number of other courses, and admits one of the reasons he went back to school was to branch out creatively, reports femalefirst.co.uk
“One of the reasons that I went back to school — and then many schools — was that when I only had acting, I felt trapped,” Franco told New York magazine.
“I think that’s how a lot of people feel in a lot of professions. When I went to Yale for my PhD in literature, I had fellow students — great students, writing incredible papers — come up to me and say, “I’m so jealous of you. I’m writing this paper. If I get it published, 50 people will read it,” he added.
