He's a graduate student whose book of short stories, Palo Alto, will be out this fall, so what's on James Franco's reading list? Twilight! "It's for a project," James explains in the September issue of Esquire, before launching into his analysis of the best-selling vampire book. "It's crazy how much sexual tension there is. It just builds and builds. I mean it never stops. It's sort of explosive by the end. Crazy. Like they'll blow up with it. And of course, they don't. Which is the point, too, I guess." While James doesn't get into what project he's reading Twilight for ("That one's off in the distance — way off"), he does reveal what side he is on in a video interview posted on esquire.com: "Team Edward!"
