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 sucks dildos watching gay porn.

Is he aware of how sick he is? Men who do that follow the crowd thinking it’s ok. it’s not.

Gay rumors, gay rapist….james, you are full of surprises. the world is starting to see your hidden stories. You manipulate people and violate them. You’re a bad person and a thief. Shame on you. Your a hollywood puppet and an untalented idiot. Keep crying yourself to sleep you have a bad conscience and you know it. Can’t wait ’till all those things you did to people in NYU come out!

James is franco is so full of nonsense. Why is he so dumb????? What a horrible person he is. He’s known to have done some shady things in Hollywood. Very horrible things to people. The truth is starting to come out. prepare yourself James; What goes around comes back around.

@starchy: “lots of men hit on young girls…” So if people jump off a bridge you’re gonna do it too? Idiot!

Anybody who gets famous think they have power. James got famous because spider man, he must be so proud.

Poor little James wasn’t like by his father.

James was not liked in high school. he was considered gay and ugly and weird. He was not liked and laughed at because of his face and braces. I felt bad for him because people would talk behind his back and he was unattractive. I think he still suffers from these things and wishes his teenage years were different. that’s one of the reasons why he chases teenage girls. Because he was known to be a loser and a fvck up. He almost went to teen jail and was laughed at. I think he needs to see a therapist because I know how bizarre he was in high school. he had very little friends and nobody wanted to invite him to parties and he was often really drunk and loud at them. I think he’s trying to get some love by being an actor.

That's the law @ 04/04/2014 at 6:36 pm

I hope he never has a family of his own, he will sexually abuse his own children.

His mother thinks she’s a big actress. I’ve heard her talk about her son and how much he was an underdog and that he had no artistic talent and that she wished he would help her more in hollywood but that he is still a little bitter about his parents refusing to send him to art school when he was young. his father thought he was an idiot for leaving school. Betsy makes people feel uncomfortable because she always talks about him and says weird stuff we don’t want to know about James. She used to be scared of him when he was a teenager. and she thinks he’s realy self centered and immature.

When i said horrible get ready for some NYU stories y’all, your past is your karma james franco

@BF: his father went to afganistan and used to shout at the tv.

what a disappointment @ 04/04/2014 at 6:44 pm

Such an idiot, and a phony, using the “gay thing” for years to get respect and be considered an artist, when in fact it’s just a perverted obsessed with underage girls

what a disappointment @ 04/04/2014 at 6:47 pm

@Stephan: Oh my God, worse than this?

@Stephan: he treated some people like dirt. manipulating them. they should come out and get some respect for themselves, he’s a terrible douche. he sucks , people, defend yourselves!!!!!!!! it’s time to make it right! james is a liar and a douche with no talent.

@what a disappointment: he uses people to gets attention. he used to get things his way but he’ll have to deal with his past and the disrepect he had for other people; he keeps it all to himself and treats people like dirt and they feel weak next to him. some people from NYU have been under him and they will never be able to have a career of their own because james already has done the damage. gross. thank god i don’t fancy him!

what a disappointment @ 04/04/2014 at 6:59 pm

@Mu: My God, what horrendous and dangerous person.

How did he get away with it so far?

Honestly James can go fvck himself!

Fetish for rabbits, fetish with dildos, fetish for teenage girls….james what the fvck?

James was badly influenced as a kid with his parents dragging him to many religious places and thoughts. he’s fvcked for life.

James franco is corrupted and participates in hollywood pedophilia. What he does behind the scene is disgusting. It’s the first time someone puts his action in the limelight. he’s not sorry. he’s always been doing gross things. shame on that freak.

Go get psychological help James. You’re sick.

JF lying bout his sexuality cus he’s a pedo. Your past is your karma jf
