James Franco Does Not Look Like This Anymore

Come hibernation season, many people will let their hair grow out for a little extra warmth. James Franco, however, is not one of those people.
Late last night, the actor-turned-everything posted a photo to his Instagram, teasing big things to come. And Francophiles around the world double-tapped to keep tabs on his hair, thanks to the warning beneath the Instagram. "Say Goodbye to this hair...You'll see. Tomorrow." Ominous.

Then, this evening, he held true to his Insta-promise and began his transformation.

And, just when you thought Franco was pulling some performance art stunt, he reminded his devotees that he did, in fact, shave his head. But, Bald Franco didn't stop there. Oh no. He transformed his head into a canvas.

Now, Franco is bald, bold, and Taylor'd — Elizabeth Taylor'd. His dome now sports a tattoo of the late actress and Montgomery Clift. It's painted on, of course, because true art washes away and nothing ever lasts, anyway.
