London: Hollywood actor James Franco has become a fan of vampire novel, `Twilight` as he researches to write his own children`s book.

The `Milk` actor is carrying around Stephenie Meyer`s bestseller `Twilight`, a tale about the romance between a vampire and a mortal, as inspiration for a future "project", Esquire magazine reported.

"It`s crazy how much sexual tension there is. It just builds and builds. I mean it never stops. It`s sort of explosive by the end. Crazy. Like they`ll blow up with it. And of course, they don`t. Which is the point too, I guess," he told the magazine.
