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”

    I do remember like someone here said that he send this 15 year old fan a video telling her to masturbate to his video and letting his tongue out. She took the video out saying that she did not want to worsen his image because she wants to get famous with her blog about him. Her site is called james franco forever. I can’t believe she took it out as another evidence of him being disgusting to another teenager.

    It’s so sad that James keeps doing that. This has been going on for years. The guy has a lot of problems. He’s really miserable and has been going through depression for years. He needs medical help.
