Alison Brie saw her brother-in-law James Franco naked on her first day on set on 'The Disaster Artist'.
The 34-year-old actress stars in the new the dramatisation of the making of Tommy Wiseau's 'The Room' alongside her husband Dave Franco, 32, and his older brother James - who directed and stars as Tommy as he portrays Johnny in the 2003 cult film.
In one particular scene, Johnny is completed naked and while shooting 'The Disaster Artist' Dave said he got used to his 39-year-old sibling being in the nude "quicker than most people on set".
Speaking to Collider, Dave said: "I mean it's not normal. I probably got used to it quicker than most people on set just because he can't really do much that surprises me these days. But I remember, while we were doing that naked scene that was Alison's, my wife's, first day coming to set and she walks into that, him walking around with a cock sock on! "And she's like, 'Alright this movie is different'. But I don't know, I just commend his commitment to the role and I think just him directing it in character added to the mega weirdness of it all and it got it all in the right headspace where there's times you feel like you are being directed by Tommy Wiseau. And there's something special and memorable about that."
'The Disaster Artist' has an all-star cast including Seth Rogen - a regular actor in Franco movies - Bryan Cranston, Zac Efron, Nathan Fielder, Ari Graynor, Josh Hutcherson, Paul Scheer, Sharon Stone and Hannibal Buress.
The film follows the making of 'The Room' - directed by and starring Wiseau - which has been dubbed the worst movie ever made but went on to gain a cult following.
James admitted as the filmmaking process progressed it started to feel as though he was making a movie about himself.
He said: "The whole thing did start to feel really autobiographical. One of the other lessons I learned from the movie is I'm a bit like Tommy.
"He thought he was making this big dramatic movie and it turned out to be a comedy. I think there's a bit of that in me."
