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.
