James Franco, a man of many talents…and a man of many cute faces. Franco’s malleable mug has been winning him fans even before Freaks & Geeks—dude earned Best Smile in his high school yearbook—and he’s certain to score more while laughing his way through his Oscars hosting gig this Sunday, where he’ll arguably be the cutest host since Goldie Hawn in 1975, if not ever (sorry, Billy Crystal).
Get ready to gush all over the screen as we show off 25 of his most priceless expressions in the gallery below. For while we may not want to read his short stories (and the Academy may not want to hear Franco sing), we’re always happy to see him smile. Thank God he didn’t turn on the high beams when sitting across from Marina Abramovic at MOMA—she would have slid right off her seat.
