Bald is beautiful—just ask James Franco.
The 36-year-old actor, scholar and selfie king shaved his head Wednesday for his role in Zeroville, the film based on Steve Erickson's book of the same name. Franco, being Franco, documented the buzzing in a series of mirror selfies.
Once the initial shave was complete, the Oscar nominee headed to makeup where he shared yet another bathroom mirror selfie showing him "Bald as a mutha!" His transformation into Zeroville's VIkar wasn't complete, though, until a fake mustache (and presumably tattoos on the back of Franco's bald head) had been painted on.
