Movie star and UCLA alumnus James Franco has withdrawn from a big real-life role at his alma mater in Westwood.
Franco will not be able to deliver the commencement speech he was supposed to give June 12 to UCLA’s College of Letters and Science graduates, officials announced.
“I deeply regret not being able to keep my commitment to giving the commencement speech at UCLA’s graduation this year,” Franco said in a prepared statement provided to the university. “Unfortunately, the date conflicts with me needing to be on location to begin pre-production on my next film. I wish everyone in the 2009 class the best of luck in all of their future endeavors.”
Isn’t he just so handsome?
“Oh So Fabulous!!”
