Franco gave Cranston marijuana painting

Los Angeles, Dec 23 (IANS) Actor James Franco gave actor Bryan Cranston a painting of a marijuana leaf and had mixed the drug in with the paint.

Franco created most of the artwork seen in his character’s home in “Why Him?” and gifted his co-star a picture of a marijuana leaf, but had mixed the drug in with the paint he used, reports ew.com.

“I did a lot of them, yes,” Franco said on a TV show.

“There was supposed to be a lot of art in the house and they consulted me, ‘What kind of art do you think you would have?’ They showed me kind of very generic paintings, so I thought, ‘Well, I have some paintings that may be funnier and may be more in line with the character’,” he added.

While Cranston, 60, thought the marijuana leaf painting was “beautiful”, his wife Robin Dearden wasn’t so impressed.

“It was a beautiful painting of a marijuana leaf… He actually painted it with real marijuana in the paint.” said Cranston, who too was on the show with Franco.

“I brought it home to my wife. We’ve been together for almost 30 years, and we have a nice little Connecticut home, and I said, ‘Honey, where do you think this would fit?’. And she said, ‘I don’t know if it would fit anywhere’,” he added.
