James Franco: Shirtless Drag Queen for 'Rebel' Exhibit!

James Franco: Shirtless Drag Queen for 'Rebel' Exhibit!

James Franco goes shirtless in drag for these new pics displayed in his “Rebel” art exhibit held at JF Chen Antiques on Saturday (May 12) in Hollywood.

The whole exhibit, which was inspired by the classic film Rebel Without a Cause, was modeled after the Chateau Marmont. Each “bungalow” was a different installation.

The photos were shot by Terry Richardson for a cover feature in Candy magazine’s Fall-Winter 2010-2011 issue.

“I found James Dean movies when I was a kid. I remember riding bikes with friends under a graffiti filled underpass in Palo Alto and asking them if they’d seen Rebel Without a Cause. It was cool, I said,” James recalls about the man he played in James Dean.

    Oh, that James Franco is one of a kind. In the forth pic he kind of looks like Kim Kartashian. Sorry to insult James like that
    .Oh and #1. Terry Richardson is NOT the best. Read up on him and you will find put some terrible things he did to some underage models. He’s a pervert and a pedophile and uses sex to promise models success. It bothers me when I see some of my favorite actors hanging around him or just getting their picture taken with him. He is a disgusting pig!

    Got to love James Franco. He must be the most fun actor working today. He truly does what he wants when he wants. A rare star for sure.

    Also, when you have seen him as a hot Drag Queen before, it’s not a surprise, you just think that’s our James next. I still prefer him without the drag label but it’s refreshing to see James again do the heck he likes and label it whatever he wants.

    I bet more stars wish they had that much freedom, especially since his fans love him no matter what and just wish him luck and health.

    Finally, anything to promote James Dean in anyway, it’s a winner for me. Looking forward to seeing this exhibit, I know it will be unique as in James Franco’s way.
