James Franco: Check Out His Real Shirtless Selfie

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.
