The actor spoke to a sold-out crowd about his acting career, heroes and pitfalls during Orange Central's "An Evening With James Franco."

While students welcomed James Franco's on-set anecdotes, it was the actor and filmmaker's advice to young creatives that was deemed most valuable. Speaking to a sold-out crowd in Goldstein Auditorium Saturday night, Franco said the best way to sharpen creative talent is to carve out a little time every day to work on it.

“Just do it,” Franco said. “If you want to be good at something, why not do it obsessively?”
