James Franco Admits To Flirting With 17-Year-Old Girl During Apperance On ‘Live! With Kelly And Michael’

Yesterday we told you all about how James Franco was caught trying to hook up with a 17-year-old girl from Scotland. If you missed the post, you can view it by clicking this link.

Basically, James Franco met this 17-year-old girl while signing autographs in New York City. The girl, Lucy Clode, took a picture with the 35-year-old actor, and he told her to tag him in it. She did later that evening, and Franco messaged her privately to ask if she wanted to meet him at a hotel.

It was all very strange, and we honestly believed it was one big stunt to promote his new film, ‘Palo Alto‘ in which he plays a teacher trying to seduce a student. And like we said in the previous post, James Franco has been known to prank the media before, so it wouldn’t be surprising if this was all fake.

However, the actor went on Live! With Kelly and Michael today and admitted to flirting with the girl…


“I didn’t want to come on the show and…feel awkward, so uh, yeah. I mean I guess, you know, I’m embarrassed, and I guess I’m just a model of, you know, how social media is tricky. It’s a way people meet each other today. But what I’ve learned I guess just because I’m new to it is like, you don’t know who’s on the other end. You meet somebody in person and you get a feel for them but you don’t know who you’re talking to, and, you know? So I used bad judgment. I learned my lesson.”

We’re not sure what he means by that. Does he feel like he was tricked? Did this Lucy girl claim to be older than 17 when he first met her? We don’t know.

And even though it seems like his admission on the show would mean this event actually happened. We still have our doubts. The whole thing still smells fishy to us.

We refuse to be tricked, Franco!
