It seems James Franco's bad-boy charm started at a young age.

The actor has admitted that he stole sample bottles of cologne and sold them in junior high.

"I guess my life of crime started by stealing cologne," the New York Post quoted him as telling in an interview on "Inside the Actors Studio".

"We'd keep them [cologne sample bottles] in the locker, in our gym locker at school and we'd sell some from the lockers," he said of his life in junior high.

The 'Freaks and Geeks' star also recalled dropping out of UCLA and supporting his acting career with a gig at McDonald's.

"In the drive-through window . . . I would practice accents," Franco said.

The interview will be broadcast tomorrow at 8 p.m. (ANI)
