James Franco usually has no problem with nude scenes and has proven with his body of work that he can be quite exploratory when it comes to the cinematic arts. So when rumors began swirling that he had a sex tape floating out there somewhere, we didn’t expect the actor to be so conciliatory about it.

Well, Franco stopped by Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show at TBS and came clean on what happened with that tape.

“When I was young,” Franco explains. “I just got a video camera and my girlfriend and I decided to film ourselves. And, uh, watched it back and said, ‘Yeah, well, let’s never watch that again.’”

He explains that part of acting may not be his forte and gave props to professional porn actors. He then tried to make his point that just because you can have sex doesn’t mean you should tape it. O’Brien seemed in total agreement until Franco began to use his grandmother as an example.

Watch below for the hilarious method in which O’Brien escaped from hearing the rest of what Franco had to say about grandma porn.
