James Franco's latest job? Fashion photographer

Every time we turn around, James Franco has picked up a new gig.

The busy actor/writer/director/student recently served as photographer for 7 For All Mankind's fall campaign, reports E! Online.

The denim brand released footage from the shoot, which was held at the famed Hollywood Forever Cemetery and features the likes of model Lily Donaldson. Franco waxed poetic about the fashion-forward opportunity.

"The whole aesthetic approach of the campaign is based on the eternal hipness of the clothes," the actor said in a statement about his work. "We can do a meditation on old and new Hollywood at the same time because of the way the clothes fit into all eras."

But if youโ€™re looking for Franco himself in any of the images, youโ€™re out of luck - the actor apparently opted not to go in front of the camera for this particular gig.

You'll see him wearing his actor hat in the upcoming film "Spring Breakers," which is in competition at this year's Venice Film Festival.

    I enjoy Franco's efforts to expand his reach and view and take a Renaissance approach to his life, unlike his many dreary, self-absorbed, career-obsessed peers.

    I have enjoyed everything James has endeavored to do. So stupid that people calling him gay is in insult. He has shown that he doesn't care what people think of him. I am an unqualified fan of Mr. Franco.

    I think the majority of the people trying to bash him are jealous of the ease which he has success and the huge number of people who are his fans. Truly petty people.

    Mr. Franco, if you are ever in Peoria, let's do dinner!

    oh James I love that you've got your hands on everything. While most people sit on their couch crying over their lack of ambition.

    Why come he doesn't have a girlfriend? And is never seen in their company, except when on stage or acting?

      Yes, you are correct. he was in that movie about the closeted black dude named jamal, who is on the DL, takes it up the rear in a back alley from old white men and then he gets AIDS.....he dies in the end....the black dude, I mean. (they all die young), especially the closet cases who post anti-gay slurs online despite the fact THEY ARE BLACK AND INFERIOR.

    Seeing as Americans are fascist, its not shocking to me that they venerate Franco. As the son of the late Spanish dictator, what he hiding????
