James Franco designed the tattoos and created the artwork used in his new movie Why Him?
The 127 Hours star plays a tattooed billionaire who falls for the daughter of Bryan Cranston‘s character in the comedy, and Franco reveals the skin art was all his creation.
The 38-year-old, who does not have any ink in real-life, went all out to give his wild man character a body of art.
“I drew some of them,” he told U.S. breakfast show Today, “and I don’t think this is spoiler, but there’s a big tattoo on my back of the whole family (in the movie that I designed).”
The multi-talented artist, filmmaker, author and college professor also donated some of his paintings to the film: “There’s a bunch of kind of silly paintings on the wall…,” he says. “Some of them have been sold. They’re just replicas of the ones that have been sold.”
