James Franco - James Franco Thrills Fan With Art Interest

Actor James Franco made his number one fan's day after buying up several of her artworks at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this week (begs12Sep11).
The Milk hunk was at the film event in Canada to discuss his own art installation Memories of Idaho when he spotted 13-year-old MACy Armstrong, the founder of the James Franco Forever page on Tumblr.com.
She had brought three Franco-inspired pieces of her work, including a yarn portrait, a canvas inspired by his 127 Hours movie and a collage of newspaper clippings - and the actor left with them all.
He told the stunned fan, "I saw that one on the Internet, someone sent it to me. I wanna buy those."
Armstrong took to her fan page to write, "Ohmygod I don't know what just happened but I can't breath! I gave James my art! And he has my email! And he's seen my 127 Hours painting!! Ahhhhh.
"He looked at me, he spoke to me, and I'm pretty sure we mentally got married! Everyone on the street thinks I'm crazy because Im freaking out! Its like a dream!"
