James Franco tries to hook up with 17-year-old fan after show

By Amy Michura,

After the performance of James Franco’s Of Mice and Men, he was greeted outside by a swarm of fans. One of these fans included a 17-year-old from Scotland who was able to capture a video of Franco that she posted on Instagram.

In the video, Franco, 35, tells the Scottish fan to tag him on the Instagram post. According to The Count, afterwards, Franco seemed to start a conversation with her apparently looking to hook up later.

According to HuffPost Celebrity, photos and screenshots depicting the conversation were uploaded April 2 on the website Imgur. However, they have been removed.

Franco allegedly asked questions like where was she from, if she had a boyfriend and if she’d like to meet up. The fan then stated that she was only 17 and a few days away from her 18th birthday, according to HuffPost Celebrity.

While the screenshots of the conversation may be doubtful with technology today, the 17-year-old also seemed wary that she was actually speaking to Franco. So she asked him to write her name on a piece of paper and snap a photo of his face with it and send it to her. It seems as though Franco agreed.

According to HuffPost Celebrity, a representative from Franco has yet to respond with a comment. However, Franco posted an Instagram photo of himself with the writing, “WHY ARE YOU SO THIRSTY FOR UNDERAGE ONES,” and tweeted, “I’M NOT! I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you.”

While the tweet is still active on the actor’s site, the Instagram photo has been deleted.
