Everyone falls asleep in class, I'll be damned if you can name one person who hasn't nodded off at one point or another in the middle of a lecture.

I'm sorry, can one person raise their hand and say they've NEVER fallen asleep in lecture? If you do, your lying or your lucky enough to be one of the 5% of college students who doesn't have to work at the same time or isn't bogged down taking 5-6 difficult classes that often have you pulling all-nighters. I know I've fallen asleep in plenty of lectures, especially while working 19 hours a week, in addition to taking a full-time load of really difficult classes, in addition to playing family chauffeur. Anyone who'd judge him for this is a hypocrite.

In actuality, Franco has been an incredibly prolific student for someone attending 3 degree programs simultaneously. He was actually attending this lecture without being enrolled in the class, according to his publicist.

I don't the the MAIN PURPOSE of film school is to "make money". That is not the purpose of higher education. That shows a complete lack of competence in this article. If it was, there would be PhD courses for prostitution & pimping.
