'As I Lay Dying's' Ahna O'Reilly at The Variety Studio: Cannes Edition

“As I Lay Dying” actress Ahna O’Reilly discusses her film’s director, James Franco, in conversation with Variety’s Steve Gaydos at the Variety Studio: Cannes Edition at Chivas House, presented by Chivas Brothers and sponsored by HP.

“The question I get asked all the time is, ‘but is he really doing all those things?’,” O’Reilly says. “‘Is he really teaching those classes? Is he really?’ And I’ve always been able to answer that question as yes, he’s really doing those things …but I really got to see it in a different way collaborating with him on this film.”
