James Franco Admits Trying to Pick Up Teen On Instagram

James Franco

35-year-old “Child of God” actor James Franco made headlines yesterday for trying to pick up an 18-year-old girl on Instagram. Scottish tourist Lucy Clode met the star while he signed autographs outside a theater. Franco contacted her on Instagram when she tagged him in a photo of herself posing near the actor. Clode later posted screen caps of Franco’s urgent IG messages on Imgur.com after the actor contacted her on IG and invited her to his hotel room for an intimate rendezvous.

After initially denying Clode’s accusations on Twitter.com Thursday, Franco came clean this morning on Live With Regis and Kelly. “I’m embarrassed and I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky,” the actor said.

Am I the only one who doesn’t see the big deal? 18 is not exactly a baby. Even if she was 17, She can legally consent to sex at age 17 in many states.

Franco, who is not married, is a hot blooded man who was simply answering the call of nature. The same hypocritical media who howled about Franco’s transgressions were conspicuously silent on the subject of deceased actor Paul Walker dating his 16-year-old girlfriend.

    it’s sorta disgusting that he’d invite some random stranger to his hotel for sex. it’s also disgustingly arrogant of him to think that she’d agree just because he’s james franco. seems a bit immature for a man his age.
    :think: but then, maybe this is a new form of social media ‘dating’ and it’s more prevalent than I think it is :shrug:

    When I was 18, I dated a guy 5 years older than me :shrug: A 35 year old would’ve come off as a total creeper to 18 year old me.

    when i was 19 i turned down a guy who was 31 – 12 yr diff. at the time i told him that even a mature 19 y/o has very little life experience compared to a 31 y/o streetwise dude. (full disclosure :oops: he later (when I was 27) became my dopamine boo and i still wasn’t ready for all of his craziness)

    I dated a guy 9 years my senior when I was 20. After seeing each other for about 6 months, we finally did the do. It was awful! Just terrible! When I broke things off with him, he said, “My sex was that wack?” I replied, “Well, at least you know.”

    Um.. that’s the whole of point of a being rich and famous man, you get attractive women. If you are a man and you say you wouldn’t do the exact same thing in his posistion, you are a liar.

    Point blank.

    ..and this chick looks older than him. That nose of hers is humongous.

    :hahaha: I did this too. I had been crushing on dude for a while. He ended up being at the right place at the right time. I just knew it was about to go down! It was even worse than the dude 9 years older than me :facepalm: I tapped him on the back of the head and said, “Nah, get up.” He apologized and blamed it on the alcohol. I told him I was going to sleep, so he snuggled into my pillows. I was like, “…Alone.” He wouldn’t even look at me when I saw him on campus after that.

    Atlanta Archbishop Wilton Gregory To Sell $2.2 Million Mansion

    SMYRNA, Ga. (AP) — The archbishop of Atlanta says he has decided to sell his $2.2 million residence following a storm of criticism from parishioners.

    Archbishop Wilton Gregory said Saturday that he will leave the Tudor-style residence in the exclusive Buckhead neighborhood in early May.

    The church leader earlier this week apologized for building the mansion. He announced his decision after meeting Saturday with clergy and lay people from within his archdiocese.

    Local Catholics have faulted Gregory for the opulent spending, citing the example of austerity set by Pope Francis.

    Gregory moved into the residence in January after selling his old home to Christ The King Cathedral for $1.9 million. The cathedral plans to move its priests into the archbishop’s former residence, freeing up space on its campus.

    At 18 she is grown by law but still sombody’s child….and to have some dirty old 30 something man (twice her age) talking about come to my room for some fun…. throws up a little in my mouth – he’s like the old perv at the club trying to get lucky cause he brought you a drink… uggghhh go play with the apes ya perv..he looks like a creepy pedophile in that photo….

    Paul Wakler had a 16 year old girlfriend – GROSS – what is with Hollywoods obsession with children… Jerry Lee Lewis liked the kids and I think married an underage family member, Roman Polanski perv who can’t come to the US, Mia Farrows ex husband a perv who married his adopted daughter… a bunch of child molesters who get a pass cause they’re connected…..

    Even though this chick is of age – you got to ask what would any 30+ year old man want with a chick so young her $ex game ain’t even up yet and ditto for old women trying to sleep with young boys honestly men under 35 have not mastered the art… in my opinion – they only have longevity not quality….. I want both…. oh I’m off topic….
