James Franco Admits to Trying to Pick Up 17-Year-Old Girl on Instagram: 'I'm Embarrassed'

James Franco appeared on Live! with Kelly & Michael early Friday morning (April 4), where he admitted he did in fact try and pick up a young teen girl on Instagram.

“I’m embarrassed and I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky. You just don’t know who is on the other end,” the 35-year-old actor, who is currently on Broadway in Of Mice & Men, said on the show. “I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson.”

“I was feeling awkward — I didn’t want to come on the show and just feel awkward,” James added. “I’m embarrassed.”

News broke yesterday that James had tried to pick up the Scottish teen named Lucy Clode via the social media site. James responded to the whole incident on his Twitter, saying “I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you”

    James franco send a video to a girl who has a blog about him. He was telling her to masturbate to his video and would bring his tongue out and say nasty stuff. that girl is 15 !!!!! she took the video out and i do not agree with that. it’s a serious issue and shouldn’t hide the fact that he behaved in such a disgusting way.

    THIS IS FOR A MOVIE. I think this is a whole stunt that he will later admit to since his new film palo alto is coming out in may and he plays an older teacher or coach who tries to get with one of his students. I think even the girl is in on it. Everyone is getting punk’d.

    James was a retarded teenager. he was ugly and had major issues!!! he was awkward, insecure and impulsive. he’s just taking a revenge on his teenage years when his bible was beverly hills 90210. He is an unhappy guy.

    play Says:

    I went to high school with James. I was actually nice to him when he was a jerk as a teenager. He was obsessed with beverly hills 90210.

    Tyla Says:

    He should be embarrassed. It was a scum-bag move! The fact that he was so arrogant to be hitting on a 17 year old, especially as a well-known celebrity is so like him. Either he wanted people to find out, or he thought no one would ever know. He’s really gross.

    DBZ Says:

    “New to it” my ass. He wasn’t looking to date her, just to f-ck her in some shady hotel room he’d have booked the previous day. Lying unwashed pig has to admit his $hit to the world now. He has probably been trollin for years and just now was dumb enough to get caught, by a teen. Boo friggin’ hoo dude. I ain’t shedding a precious tear on this creep. He got what he deserved.

    James got a nose job, it’s true!!!! he’s a creep and a fool. he’s stupid and has no talent! he’s a famewhoooooore!!!! by the way james “looooved” your first movie THE APE …NOT!!!! his eyes are so small he can’t see what he’s doing!

    my 2 cents Says:

    He should have ended it after finding out her age. I don’t care what the “age of consent is” in NYC it’s still sleazy. A 17-year-old girl, who is probably so flattered (and vulnerable) by a 35-year-old movie star is easy bait. And if this was actually a cheap stunt to tie-in to his new movie, still incredibly stupid. He just ruined his career and what’s left of his reputation and that movie is probably gonna be boycotted by anyone who heard about this. Yeah, blame social media for your blue balls, douche. He wanted to frame it like he was the victim here not like he’s taking responsibility, it wasn’t an apology that’s for sure.

    DBZ Says:

    To clarify my post#68 I’m gay and i cried when i heard bout this, he was my fantasy and God. He needs to go back to his brokeback mountain ways or my dickk will never get hard again

    Nana Says:

    @DBZ: he’s bisexual.

    BS Says:

    The part about him not really understanding social media is utter BS. Most people who regularly use Instagram do not even know you can IM with it because it’s such a new feature they just implemented. Everyone with half a brain knows that if you do something dumb, the odds of it being put on blast online are pretty good. She tagged him on Instagram and he found and contacted her by searching for images & videos he had been tagged in that day. Creepy self-obsessed stalker. This smug motherf’cker deserves all the embarrassment the universe dishes out on him cause he’s only sorry he got caught.

    DBZ Says:

    @Nana: he wasn’t bisexual when i was on top of him and he screamed for my semenn inside his ripped hole, he needs to remember that and come back to our community, my dickk needs him, brb crying

    @Nana: I don’t think so, he’s just a pedo straight creepy pompous pretentious “artist “wanna be jerk
