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.

Franco: Hi

Clode: hi

Franco: Where do you live?

Franco: NYC?

Clode: Scotland

Clode: In a small town called Dollar

Franco: How long will you be in New York?

Clode: Oops sorry, um a few days it’s my 18th birthday present

Franco: You’re 18?

Franco: Who are you with?

Franco: Do you have a bf?

Clode: Nearly 18, my mum and not if you’re around

Franco: When is your bday?

Franco: Where are you staying?

Franco: What’s your #?

Clode: In May but I have exams then, just off of Times Square in Hilton, what do you mean #?

Then later, had another conversation:

Franco: Can I see you?

Clode: As long as you are james Franco

Franco: I am

Franco: You’re single?

Franco: What’s the hotel?

Franco: Should I rent a room?

Clode: April fools was an hour ago though…

The Your Highness star then shared what appears to be a selfie.

Franco: It’s me

Franco: Yes or no?

Franco: Tomorrow or thurs?

Franco: Ok

Franco: Be well

Franco: X

Clode: I’ll come back when I’m 18

Franco: X

Clode: Well this is a story my Scottish friends will never believe

Franco: Don’t tell

Clode: I just want proper evidence that it’s you and I won’t

Franco: I gave it to you

Franco: If you don’t want to meet, then text me when you do.

Franco: Bye

Clode: You sound so dodgy though

Franco: Bye

Clode: One second, I will meet you if you write my name on a piece of paper then send it to me with your face also in the picture, please

    That’s hilarious. Now you all know that this is the EXACT reason why certain celebrity men say they “resort” to hookers and professional escorts, right? That is, because they can’t “TRUST” ordinary women (I suppose in this case minor girls) to keep their mouths shut about their romantic rendezvous. It’s everyone else’s fault. Not theirs. Apparently.

    Interesting logic. These men with an addiction for “consuming” and “experiencing” and “enjoying” girls and/or women instead of loving or respecting them, get caught in the act of trying to “consume” and discard them without conscience. But, then they blame us, the ordinary folks, for not only invading their privacy and not allowing them, as poor “never catch a break babies,” to be “human,” but also for forcing them into “neato” additional vices where they can explore their consumption of women even better, ie, prostitution.

    What did that pig Charlie Sheen say? “I don’t pay for them to sleep with me. I pay for them to leave afterwards” or something vile like that. It looks like James wanted to use this minor as a bargain basement “free” escort for the night. I don’t think she deserved that. Looks like from her disclosure of his tweet, she also felt she didn’t deserve to be treated that way by a narcissistic and “dodgy” male celebrity.

    Message to Clode my dear: Go to college, then to law school as we need more women like you in the world. Way to respect yourself and help girls to respect themselves as well.

    Yes, I think it is a good thing this loser got caught with his hands in the teenage cookie jar. Perhaps if he was a normal man who leaned towards mature women of his OWN age, and learned how to be good to women, instead of treat them with contempt and as mere “throw away garbage,” he could find a woman who would not betray his privacy.

    What did he honestly expect from a girl who he was clearly trying to use and throw away with no intention of respecting or seeing again? Did he expect her to respect him when he did not have the intent of doing the same for her? Think about it. He asked to meet her knowing she was 17, and was only in NY for a brief time, and would leave the country and be out of his hair shortly. It was, in my opinion, James using and abusing his celebrity status to get off on consuming a much younger minor, and that is gross.

    If it was just an elaborate stunt to publicize his movie, and he doesn’t come out very quickly with this girl to not only reveal that as the case, but take time to scold men who troll for young PU/SSY, then it is even more vile and pathetic as he would be just leeching off of the world using negative attention to get all eyes on him.

    That instagram nonsense he followed up with doesn’t make any point other than “all eyes on me” AGAIN. It doesn’t condemn conduct like his or say it was a joke. It just says, “I am a pervert who trolls for underage girls” and if that doesn’t work out, I’ll settle for any attention, good or bad the world will send my way.

    A 17 year old knows exactly what she’s doing. I don’t see anything wrong in this. There are tons of guys in hollywood who do the same thing, and no one seems to even mentioned. Just get over it.

    I really wish female moviegoers would stop supporting these men: Franco, Depp, Dicaprio, Butler, etc.

    The best quality a guy can have now a days is to be a good husband and father. Thankfully, there are many guys out there who do have these qualities, just harder to find but they do exist.

    Brian Says:

    The only way that guy has made his career has been through provocation and gossip. He’s still the average actor he was. he just loves the media so much.

    gerard butler dates barely legals. i know he’s dated younger women in their 20s. but with james it’s totally different. he’s done this many times, he’s a pervert and a pedophile.

    Skylar Says:

    @Kris: what a way to promote your film, by encouraging perverts and pedophiles. that’s not an excuse and I think that you’re lying. shame on him. But like that phil guy said, he’s done this before, some people will come out with the truth about him. go get yourself treated james, you’re sick in the head!
