James Franco Is Embarrassed You Saw Him Try to Hook Up With a Teenager on Instagram

James Franco went on Live with Kelly and Michael this Friday to say how embarrassed he was about the leaked Instagram chats between himself and a 17-year-old Scottish girl. Franco tried to turn his experience into a study of social media and the trickiness of it all. I give him a 6.5 for the attempted recovery.

“I was just feeling awkward. I didn’t want to come on the show and just feel awkward. So yeah. I mean, I guess I’m embarrassed,” Franco told hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan. “I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky. You know, it’s a way people meet each other today. But what I’ve learned I guess just because I’m new to it, you don’t know who is on the other end. You meet somebody in person and you get a feel for them, but you don’t know who you are talking to [online]. So I used bad judgement and I learned my lesson.”

“Fortunately, in my position I have a very good life, but not only do I have to go through the embarrassing kind of rituals of meeting someone, sometimes if I do that, then it gets published for the world,” he continued. “So now, you know, it’s like doubly embarrassing.”

Yea, even more embarrassing is how he couldn’t close the deal despite being a rich, white, attractive movie star. That’s like Flash Gordon losing in a footrace to Joe Six Pack.

    He’s not too pure to try to fuck an underage girl, though.

    • Moster Fresby

      Yeah he’s just a pedophile like the rest of them. Much better right?

        Pedophiles aren’t looking to hook up with 17-18 year girls.
        Normal young men are.

          15 yr olds is a different story.

    Who is John “Gault”?

  • RemoteKidney

    you’re either the worst informed gossip writer in town or a straight misogynist apologist because everybody and their mothers have known for years about what a creep this POS is and how he used his “acting school” just as his own personal harem. I’d say a little bit of both, in equal parts.
