James Franco has recruited his grandmother to send a foul-mouthed message to fans too squeamish to watch his latest film 127 HOURS.
The actor can be seen sitting on a couch with his elderly relative, who wears a T-shirt which reads 'I Kept My Eyes Open For 127 Hours', in a video entitled 'Christmas Greetings from the Francos' on FunnyOrDie.com.
The shirt refers to the spate of movie-goers who have fainted during a gruesome scene in which Franco's character amputates his arm with a knife - and in the skit, Franco's grandma declares just what she thinks of their delicate dispositions.
In the clip, Franco asks his gran, "There are some people that hear about this movie and they're a little scared to see it. I was wondering if you could tell everybody what you thought of those people?"
She then replies, "I think they're a bunch of p**sies!"
