James Fraco Vital Statistics
James’ curly hair, wrinkled, smiling eyes and one sided smirk has already won millions of hearts. Apart from those, his not so athletic body but still a slim and lean structure has been the point of talk. A great looker overall, James has done different genres of films but more or less all had realistic characters. Hence, though he had to undergo changes for his characters, he never had to have a massive make over.
For 127 Hours, he had to have a fit body otherwise the role of the climber wouldn’t have been believable. In Annapolis, he acted as a boxer and had to learn the art and also possessed a much more shaped and toned body. Ignoring these minimal fluctuations, James’ statistics were always fairly distributed and praise worthy.
James Franco Height
This happy go lucky guy has a height of 178 cm or 5.10 inches. Though many a people doubt the authenticity of the measurement and think he in real life is much shorter.
But all these are pointless, as no one goes to watch a movie with measuring tape! And whatever be his height, his acting and behavior on screen are the things that steal attention. Moreover, James appears taller than he is in real life and this gave rise to all such questions. 5.10 inches though not very tall is not a short height either. It is a decent length which is good for an actor.
James Franco weight, chest, biceps size
Other than height, there are other factors as well that make the actor appear attractive. These factors add substance and provide necessary impact. What is use of height if not countered with the perfect width and other body parts? Well, proportion-less to be specific and less rude or harsh.
James weight is 167.5 pounds or 76 Kg which is fine if compared with his height and gives him the needed elevation. His chest size is of 42 inches and that of his waist is 31 inches, which hints at a V shaped body that many people simply crave for. His biceps is of 14 inches. As said earlier, an actor needs to break or build himself in accordance with his role, same goes for Mr. Franco. He has done many movies but none of his films required him to have severe transformation. James’ slim body suits him and goes well with his boyish charm.

Even if someone is not trying hard to grow muscles, then also proper diet and freehand exercises should be practiced to stay in shape and keep the body active. James believes this. He does not have an athlete’s body with chiselled features but he has gifted himself a leaner body.
Foley is his trainer who helped James to achieve his present body.
