James Franco is an American actor, writer, comedian and musician.

During an Inside the Actors Studio interview in 2012, Franco explained to the audience, “Helping people – that’s the key to life, the key to happiness… As an actor, you can get wrapped up in yourself and your career…A little secret is one of the greatest ways to break that is to stop thinking about yourself for a second.”

He credits Kirsten Dunst with introducing him to the joy of helping others. Dunst suggested he spend time volunteering with her chosen charity, The Art of Elysium, and the experience changed his life.
