Very few people can pull off a mustache and ever fewer can do so while making the facial expressions of a bad soap actor smelling rotten eggs. Somehow, James Franco does both and still looks as sexy as ever. The actor showed off these skills while attending the press conference for 127 Hours during the 54th BFI London Film Festival at the Vue West End on Thursday.

While James is a serious scholar (he has UCLA, NYU, Columbia, and Yale all on his resumé), he is also a bit of a goof. The Pineapple Express actor even flipped his middle finger while on stage at the press conference.
