When it comes to James Franco's Instagram posts, his latest addition is pretty tame — and yet, there’s something about a blond Franco that makes us cringe a bit. Then again, that might just be the hand sign he flashed the camera.

Looking very serious, James showed off his new lighter look on August 11, captioning the selfie, “That Late 90s bleached look.”

The typically dark-hued actor looks to have ditched his chocolate brown, slightly curly locks for a stick-straight bleached look that has us wondering: Do the curtains match the drapes? We don’t actually want to know, but James will probably tell us all the same.

The 36-year-old actor has made a reputation for himself this year for sharing some NSFW pics, including this gem from early May. He eventually deleted the picture of himself clutching his manhood and shedding his pride, later explaining to David Letterman that he loves Instagram because “it’s just a fun thing.”

“It’s something I don’t put a ton of thought into, but it gets a lot of attention,” he explained. “I have a lot of followers on Instagram.” And a lot of 'em are loving James’s new look; we’re talking more than 102,000 double taps as of publishing. Huh.
