James Franco Alert!

4/16/2009 3:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

James Franco was wide awake Monday night in the Columbia University school library... no boring professors in sight putting him to sleep.

In the category of art imitating life, the book sitting next to Franco is "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man."

I love James Franco. We both graduated from the English department at UCLA. I love him for his mind and movie choices. He'll always have a special place in my heart.

So, I got the answer right (ya know, being brilliant like all TMZ followers...OK, that and having read the book) but I was sad it didn't show how MANY people got the answer right.

Wow, see ladies this is why we love James Franco even the more! Not only is he a great actor, he is also a got a good head on his shoulders by still going to college even though he probably has made enough money from his several movie roles(ex Spiderman Trilogy,Pineapple Express plus more ) . I admire him even more now that he is in college, I just finished college, before my May 22nd B'day(not bragging just, happy), but you better believe if I could go to Columbia University and get into some of the classes with James I would do it. LOL Plus another thing that makes James even more handsome and appealing is that.......wait for it, he loves to read! And not just school books to pass a class, real books. When I started college everyone thought I was crazy, because I love to read books, where I live college students HATE to read anything other than and barely their college school books! Plus the book James franco is reading seems like an interesting read. May we get more celebrity like James Franco with his smartness, thank God for James Franco!

I'm sure he'll make a wonderful President of the World someday...meanwhile, who is taking these pics of him? I suspect he has someone doing it so that we won't forget who he is, and how smart he seems to be, you know, going to college and everything, like you even need a brain anymore to graduate. Sleeping in class and hanging in the libary (that's how it's pronounced in the ivy league schools...) sure makes us think he's really into this. Anyone seen his GPA?
