James Franco Allegedly Asks 17-Year-Old Girl to Meet at Hotel - Find Out James' Response to the Controversy

A conversation between actor James Franco and a 17-year-old Scottish teen Lucy Clode has been leaked on the Internet, and from the text, it appears as if he propositioned her to meet up at a hotel.

If the texts are to be believed, James and Lucy first encountered each other outside the stage door of his play Of Mice & Men. They later spoke via Instagram, where he asked her relationship status and if she wants to get a hotel room.

Lucy posted video and photos on her Instagram, and James does audibly ask to be tagged in the selfie with her.

“I’M NOT! I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you” James said in response on his Twitter.

It should be noted that James has a movie coming out called Palo Alto which has been based on his own stories about a high school teacher who has a relationship with a student. We can only wonder if this is an elaborate promo for the film.

    Sandyy Says:

    Wow, he really wanted to get some underage p-ssy.
    All of those questions are making me LOL “What hotel? Should I rent a room? Yes or no? Tomorrow or Thursday? Marvin Gaye or Al Green?”
    Dumb and caught in his own celeb hype that teens will fall for him like he’s a rock star or some sh-t…

    Was it texts?? Or was it g+??
    Because I know for a fact that there’s a man on g+ be Gerard Butler, James Franco and Ewan McGregor.
    A guy from Malaysia who asks for numbers and to meet up and becomes very angry when you refuse to take him on.

    Just saying. Its probably not him… Shame that people ruin celebrity credibility from doing stupid sh/t like this.

    It was on Instagram and there is no excuse for his behavior so stop making stanny excuses.

    Truthie Says:

    He could’ve just waited for her to turn 18, so he can start dating her LEGALLY like all the other douchebags in Hollywood (Paul Walker, Leo DiCaprio, James Wood, Jeff Goldblum, etc)

    -_- Says:

    @marple: He wrote her name on a piece of paper along with his face! IT’S HIM. He’s not even denying it on Twitter. Moron.

    tina Says:

    He’s famous, rich and still attractive, why does he sound like some creepy dating site weirdo who didn’t got laid in years?

    niagirl Says:

    He got played. If were throwing men under the bus for dating young girls then throw Paul Walker (same scenario), Liam Hemsworth (miley was 17), Jamie Strachan (Dakota F bf), Woody A, and the barely legals that belong to Leo, Bradly and Joaquim. You can’t be shocked that a single man attractive man tried to get laid. I find it amazing she didn’t go for it. Most would have. There’s a lot of thirst out here.

    It’s not illegal. In New York, a 17 year old can legally consent.

    snapcracklepop Says:

    I can’t believe I’m gonna do this but, I kind of agree with you. He’s getting more heat for it because he’s slimy looking but, LOTS of Hollywood guys have been doing this (within sight) for years.

    Also, the age of consent is 17 years in New York- where they were.
