New York, July 10 : 'Spiderman' star James Franco is getting back to his books, attending graduate school at New York University.
The actor graduated from UCLA last month at the age of 30, but is determined to carry on with his education.
The actor admitted that his parents were rather disappointed when he dropped out of college in his teens to make movies.
However, he's quick to add that it's not just to please his parents that he's getting back to his books.
"I am going back to school because I love being around people who are interested in what I'm interested in," Franco told the New York Daily News.
"That is the best way to learn.
"For me, being able to act in movies is not having it all. I am interested in other things, and I take my interests seriously. Thus, I'm back in school."
The actor loves to write, and already has movies like "The Ape," "Fool's Gold" and "Good Time Max" to his credit.
