Is there really ever a case of too much of a good thing? Not when we're talking about a nearly naked James Franco
The actor, 35, got the social media world hot and bothered
last week when he Instagrammed
a pic of himself wearing nothing but a red Speedo and a Santa hat (alongside a cat in a Santa hat).
But while fans thought Christmas had come early – a James Franco with Cats
calendar would be the perfect stocking stuffer – they were sorely disappointed to learn that the six-pack abs belonged to a model, whose face had been swapped out with Franco's courtesy of some clever Photoshopping by Ellen DeGeneres
' staff ahead of his appearance on her show on Monday.
But the real thing is even better than the Photoshopped version – Franco posted a shirtless selfie
over the weekend, along with the caption, "All the kids are doing it."
The only thing that could make it more perfect? Maybe a cat. No, make that absolutely nothing
