Maybe it was the perma-grin, the squinty eyes or just the generally goofy vibe he gave off.
But whatever the reason, a lot of the online chatter this morning is centered around the fact that Oscar host James Franco looked high to many folks during last night's ceremony. We'll probably never know whether he was or wasn't, but that of course hasn't stopped people on the Interwebs from opining -- with supreme confidence -- on the subject.
Let's go to the tweets.
@nickw4990 and James Franco was so high.
I'm still laughing about how incredibly high James Franco was last night ... lol.
James Franco: Drunk or high?
My mom is cracking up just looking at james franco. A new kind of contact high or?
But there were folks on Twitter who expressed some doubts regarding his alleged highness.
i''m trying 2 believe he was VERY nervous. ;) RT @MrOneUp: Pretty sure James Franco is high.
James Franco: High, or just ... James Franco? #oscars
James Franco was not high, that's just how he is.
(And Franco probably looked even more chilled-out next to his spirited and professional Oscar co-host, Anne Hathaway.)
