James Franco Talks Instagram Underage Hook-Up Scandal On 'Live! With Kelly And Michael'
By now you've probably heard about 35-year-old actor James Franco's Instagram hook-up scandal with a 17-year-old girl. (Here's the full breakdown in case you missed it.)
Was it real? Was it fake? Were we being punk'd in the latest James Franco art project? (The whole situation is rather similar to the storyline of his upcoming film Palo Alto, in which Franco plays a high school coach who seduces a teenage girl.)
Well now James is speaking out on the incident. He visited Live! With Kelly and Michael this morning and used the opportunity to tackle the story head on. See what he had to say!
Franco said, in part:
"I’m embarrassed, and I guess I’m just a model of how social media is 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.”
What do you think of his explanation, Instincters? (And does at least a small part of you still he's playing the world with a relatively elaborate hoax??)
