James Franco Comes Clean, Admits He Was Trying to Pick Up Teenage Girl on Instagram

by 6 years ago


Yesterday, we brought you the news that James Franco very possibly tried to pick up an underage girl on Instagram. Today, he copped to it.

Franco went on Live with Kelly and Michael to discuss the burgeoning scandal.

“I’m embarrassed. I guess I’m just a model about how social media’s tricky. It’s a way people meet each other today, but what I’ve learned is you don’t know who’s on the other end. I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson.”

Which is true. I can dick pic with abandon with some confidence that it won’t be plastered about the internet. Franco, not so much.

“Unfortunately, in my position, not only do I have to go through the embarrassing rituals of meeting someone, but if I do that, then it gets published for the world so it’s doubly embarrassing.”

Good for him for admitting it. That’s how you handle a mistake. Thirty more seconds and we’ll all forget.
