James Franco hits on teen
Aging youth James Franco admitted he hit on a teenage girl on Instagram, asking for her phone number, asking to see her, suggesting they get a hotel room, all after finding out her age.
How refreshing that he didn't claim it was performance art.
The girl was 17. She was visiting from Scotland. 17 is the age of consent in New York. I guess since he wasn't attempting to commit an actual crime, he could admit to it.
Franco is 35. He smiles a lot which makes him look older.
Franco is intellectually lazy, incapable of serious work artistically, but he's been trying to pass himself off as a genius. Because he's a celebrity, people have played along. But the act is wearing thin. He might be happier if he gave it up and took it easy for a while.
Here's a video of Franco on TV:
James Franco is a 35-year-old millionaire movie star who GOES TO COLLEGE. And he claims he had to resort to social media to meet women. He complains about the "embarrassing rituals of meeting someone." Is it really that hard to meet an adult woman at a university?
I wasn't especially outraged by it, but I am now. Just saw a video of James Franco on TV "admitting" to hitting on a 17-year-old high school girl less than half his age. He falsely claimed to be "new" to social media and it was just his way of meeting people. He was smiling the whole time. He apparently picked a show with a couple of fawning hosts who he knew wouldn't say anything about it or challenge him in any way. All they did was gush over how "honest" he was.
He claimed he didn't know who he was talking to, although he asked her how old she was and what her birthday was. How is that a result of his being "new to social media"? How long do you have to be on there to figure that out? "I'm just a model of how social media is tricky."
I didn't see anything "tricky" here. What did he think was tricky?
Well. To hell with him.
