Actor James Franco has unveiled a new art exhibition entitled 'Gay Town' at the Berlin International Film Festival in Germany.

The actor, who took up painting as a high school student, is displaying pieces in his new solo exhibition that he's has created over the past two years. The opening coincides with the annual movie event in the German capital. "Gay Town" delves into themes including adolescence, stereotypes and public and private personas, and features paintings, videos, drawings, sculpture and photography. Franco created "many of the works in hotel rooms, makeshift studios and other temporary locations whilst completing other projects, mainly motion pictures," according to a press release.

He needs to find something to do besides taking rolls from talented actors. I think I have a idea what he does to get jobs  because it can't be his acting.
