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 you’re looking for Franco himself in any of the images, you’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.

Woah this blog is fantastic i love studying your articles. Stay up the good paintings! You realize, a lot of individuals are hunting round for this info, you could aid them greatly.
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.
dude is high on himself, like everything he does is great.
Dude's so high all the time, I bet he can taste colors
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!
Well said. I admire him as well. Limitless possibilities and he has the courage to do it. He is talented and FINE.
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.
i can't wait for the fall line "up"
Jack of all trades, master of none. After the Oscars debacle is proof of this statement.
His brother is more entertaining, and less annoying.
Feeling a little jealous, are we?
Why come he doesn't have a girlfriend? And is never seen in their company, except when on stage or acting?
I believe you were trying to say, "how come." and it's not really anyone's business. Unless you're a troll!
He has a birth defect that left him without a phallus. Not a joke.
Because you're gay.
@3:25 why are you so bitter?Those angry words,Jammal i'm sure is white,you took his bait and showed your true colors.Anyway James Franco is so HOT.
Poor man's Heath Ledger
Somehow I think he'd take that as a compliment.
Guess he wants to be mediocre at as many things as possible, including acting.
So that's why unemployment is so high...he's taking all our jobs!
Jammal.....thou doth protest too much. Your gay tendancies are showing. It doesn't matter tho, nobody cares but you.
James Franco is the white Donald Glover.
Isnt he that gay guy that was on that movie? You know, the one about gays.
i think it was called "Gay in America: The Fudgepackking Years"
wow, you're really funny. I bet you're just south of the 70 line... (That's I.Q., which I'll spell out for you since you're just south of the 70 line). Enjoy your pathetic little life.
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.
No, that movie you are referring to is "Milk" with Sean Penn.
So is he going to get togehter with Tom Cruise now and make babies?
Gouda (you named yourself after a cheese?),
Welcome to America. Yes, the two are going to have children together; that's t-o-g-e-t-h-e-r.
The quintessential renaissance man. Bring it on, James. Stay true to yourself.
James Franco can photograph anytime.....loc=ve that smile, the rest aint' too bad...
You gotta love him, always makes me smile.
This guy really has a bloated sense of self. He needs to go away already!!
nice blog its simple trendseveryday
I'd hit that.
That's funny! Way to turn the table!
If he's needing the practice, he can take my picture..with or without the towel..his choice...the we can do some developing ourselves 🙂
Gloria, girl, you need a cold shower
I'd enjoy sitting down and chatting with him...and then taking a dump squarely on his forehead.
Can't stand him!!!
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????
Yes, the Spanish dictator fathered James 3 years after he died...after I take a dump on James Franco, you're next.
Two words, infidel: Frozen sperm.
your favorite Popsicle?

Wow – that is great.... Keep stirring the pot up! I love it...
