Who says being James Franco is the pits?

Even though the 127 Hours actor is giving us an eyeful of armpit hair on the cover of French Vogue, looking at his gorgeous face is worth it.

The 32-year-old hunk is currently studying for a PhD in English at Yale, and also taking classes at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Brains, braun and sex appeal ... Mr. Franco is the whole package!
