James Franco hits on 17-year-old girl on Instagram

By Jessica Zysberg,

Actor James Franco, 35, is in the spotlight after attempting to arrange a meeting at a hotel with a 17-year-old Scottish tourist in New York City March 30.

As earlier reported by E! News, Clode was seeing the sights in the city as an early 18th birthday present, and she met Franco at his Broadway show, Of Mice and Men. She took an Instagram video with the star, and he said, "You gotta tag me."

Later on that same day, the two began flirting via Instagram. Although it is possible that the posts on the social networking site could be fake, Franco proved his true identity not once, but twice.

New York Daily News reported that Franco asked several questions such as "Who are you with, do you have a bf, when is your bday?"

James Franco took to another popular form of social media, Twitter and released a tweet saying, “I'M NOT! I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you.”
