James Franco, Seth Rogen leak their own naked Christmas card
AS if the barrage of political season's greetings weren't enough, Seth Rogen and James Franco thought they'd add to the air of festive uncomfortableness by unveiling their very own Christmas card, too.
Seemingly saving Sony hackers the job of leaking any more of their intimate details, they've gone and revealed all themselves by posing entirely naked. Save, of course, for a pair of stockings to cover their modesty as they sit atop a wincing Santa's knee.
Over the weekend, The Interview co-stars received high praise for their co-hosting of American sketch show Saturday Night Live.
Highlights of the program included a performance by Nicki Minaj, who sent up Kim Kardashian and Beyonce.
It also included Rogen and Franco's opening monologue, which drew upon the cyber attack that leaked films, and the personal and financial details of hundreds of employees - including themselves.
"All the girls who got instagram messages from me this year, last year, the hackers did it!" Franco quipped.
Over the weekend, North Korea, who had threatened the actors (and the United States) for their part in the creation of Kim Jong-Un assassination movie The Interview, denied any involvement in the mass information breach.
However, State officials did declare the attack on Sony to be "righteous".
"We do not know where in America the Sony Pictures is situated and for what wrongdoings it became the target of the attack, nor (do) we feel the need to know about it," the statement carried in state media and reported by AP read.
"But what we clearly know is that the Sony Pictures is the very one which was going to produce a film abetting a terrorist act while hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of North Korea."
