But Franco is adamant he has changed his ways and even though he still works hard, he is much more amiable.

"I used to approach acting with a very antagonistic (attitude). I was very hard to get along with and it made working in film very unpleasant," he told The Advocate.

"It also hurt my performances. Now I think about acting differently. I still work really hard, but for my own sanity - and everyone else's - I've had to surrender the results," the actor added.
