Did James Franco Pursue a Teenage Girl on Instagram?
James Franco's latest scandal has nothing to do with his next artistic project.
A 17-year-old Scottish woman named Lucy Clode claims the “Palo Alto” star attempted to hook up with her via Instagram, E! News reports.
Clode, who traveled to New York shortly before her 18th birthday in May, was introduced to the actor at his Broadway play, “Of Mice and Men.”
They then allegedly began a conversation through Instagram, where things took a turn. In the transcript, Franco reportedly asked when she turned 18, if she was single, and if he should rent a hotel room.
After Clode began to question if it was truly the actor, at one point writing, “You sound so dodgy though,” he then allegedly sent two selfies to prove it was him.
In response to their chat being leaked online, he then tweeted, “I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you.”
