Over the weekend, James Franco officially became a "man" — and it was all for a good cause!
On October 3, James underwent a bar mitzvah ceremony (the actor's momma is Jewish) thanks to his pal and The Dictator co-star, Seth Rogen.
For those who don't know, Rogen encouraged Franco to get bar mitzvahed for his foundation, Hilarity for Charity, which raises money for those affected by Alzheimers. The actor was motivated to start the charity after his wife's mother was diagnosed with the heartbreaking disease.

But wait, how does J.F. and a bar mitzvah translate into a charity function?
While the Freaks and Geeks alum went through the religious ceremony on Friday, a big bash will be held on October 17 to celebrate the milestone. Miley Cyrus will headline the event (not too shabby) and all proceeds from the party will go to Hilarity for Charity.
Rogen joked about Franco's big day, saying:
"I wanted to circumcise him. If I had I choice of a Jew thing to do to him I would have done that, but I took the bar mitzvah."
Ha! We bet the 37-year-old appreciates the gesture, Seth!
Even though bar/bat mitzvahs are supposed occur at age thirteen, it's better late than never! We just wonder how James finds the time to teach, direct, act, write, and undergo religious ceremonies… dude must never sleep!
Hopefully the bash will go on without a hitch and Rogen will raise a ton of money for Alzheimers!
