James Franco: Spirit of Elysium Award Honoree

James Franco suits up in Gucci at The Art of Elysium‘s 4th Annual Black Tie “Heaven” Charity Gala on Saturday (January 15) at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old 127 Hours star received the “Spirit of Elysium” Award at the bash for his involvement with the organization.

“I wanted a place where I could give back. I didn’t know what I could give but I wanted to give back,” he said during his acceptance speech, adding that pal Kirsten Dunst introduced him to The Art of Elysium.

“I started volunteering at All Saints Hospital. Art of Elysium really saved my life. There’s nothing better than giving back,” he added.

At the end of his speech, James gave Kirsten, who won the same award last year, a kiss on the cheek.
