James Franco wasn't just directing and starring in his film, Zeroville, on Thursday - he was also taking the time for some Instagram action.
In a picture posted to the social-media site, the 36-year-old James sat with his Zeroville co-star, 28-year-old Megan Fox.
With his bomber jacket and her black-and-white stripes, the two made for a stunning image.

Say cheese: James Franco shared an Instagram photo in which he and Megan Fox sit together on the set of Zeroville
Perhaps because he was so busy both acting and directing for Zeroville, James offered only a brief caption to the Instagram post.
'Megan Fox is the best.'
She certainly looked her best when spotted one day earlier, wandering the Los Angeles set in the same outfit that appeared in James' photo.
Covered up: Megan held an umbrella over her head as she stepped out on the set of Zeroville in Los Angeles on Wednesday
Stripe hype: The 28-year-old actress displayed her slender figure and slim pins in a figure-hugging black and white mini dress
Adding a unique element to her dressed-down attire, the stunning actress carried an umbrella in order to protect herself from the sun's rays.
The 28-year-old actress made her way across the movie set, wearing a figure-hugging black and white striped high-neck dress of which the bottom half was all black and cut in a mini style.

She teamed her simple garment with furry ankle boots, her slender legs bare, while wearing her raven tresses down.

Heads on a head: The busy actor-director stopped for a makeup update on Thursday, allowing his stunning tattoo to be visible on that bald head
The mother-of-two was busy filming scenes for Zeroville, which also stars the likes of Seth Rogen and Will Ferrell.
As for James, his double duty as actor and star had him running around the set solo throughout Thursday.
One of the only times he stopped was, in fact, when a makeup artist forced James to allow touch-ups to his bald, tattooed look.
Busy: James, 36, kept busy with his directing job throughout the shoot
Vision: Based on a novel for which James bought the rights, the entirety of Zeroville has felt his presence
Otherwise, it was a fast-moving, Indiana Jones-lookalike sort of a day for James.
His brown bomber jacket covered a plain, white T-shirt tucked into belted brown trousers.
Sunglasses were James' only concession to the bright sun that had forced Megan's umbrella usage.
Light moment: Even with the pressure, James had time for both Instagram fun and smiles
Black-and-white stripes were not, however, the only thing that Megan was seen to wear on the set.
Earlier on Wednesday, she had emerged from her trailer wearing a long dressing gown in a pale grey tone, which covered her svelte frame.
And, instead of her fluffy boots, she sported a pair of equally cosy-looking slippers.
Last week, James shared another picture on Instagram of himself with his beautiful co-star Megan and another actress, who posed topless.
Dressing down in a dressing gown: Earlier in the day, she had emerged in a comfortable robe and slippers
Star quality: In Zeroville, Megan plays the love interest of James Franco's character, a Hollywood star with a troubled past
In the snap, James stood in-between the two beauties who were scantily-clad and covered in fake blood, while baring their teeth and holding their hands up like claws.
He added the caption: 'Vampyros Lesbos.'
Megan plays James' character's love interest in the film, appearing as a Hollywood star who has endured a difficult past.
The Pineapple Express actor bought the film rights to the Steve Erikson's critically acclaimed 2007 novel three years with the intent to direct, as previously reported by Variety.
The story follows 24-year-old student Vikar - played by James - who shows up in Hollywood in 1969 and attempts to make it in the movie business.
He also sports distinguishing tattoos of a Place In The Sun stars Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor on his head.
