Insomniac James Franco

James Franco "doesn't sleep".

The 'Pineapple Express' star - who shot to fame playing James Dean in a TV biopic in 2001 - hates going to bed because there are so many things he wants to do with his time.

He said: "I don't sleep. I have a lot of interests and a lot I want to get done so I have gotten into the habit of not getting into my bed.

"I sit on the couch with my laptop until I fall asleep. I have the computer in a protective case because it often ends up falling to the floor."

James - who is currently studying graduate-level writing and filmmaking programmes at both Columbia University and New York University's Tisch School of the Arts - also revealed why he decided to go back to school.

The 31-year-old actor added: "There has always been a part of me that felt I was letting something go when I left school at 18 or 19 to become an actor."

Hi Polly, I heard about this too.
That's not healthy you have to get your sleep. They say your brain starts to deteriorate after awhile.

Hey Polly! Thanks for the link. Missy's right, sleeping from a seated position is not good for sweet James' circulation. I hope he overcomes that little habit.
