James Franco woos teen half his age? Teen posts video and photos from Franco

James Franco seemingly woos a 17-year-old girl over the social networks and the teen posts pictures and a video adding evidence to the bizarre interactions. At one point Franco asks if she is 18 and the girl told him she was still 17, but that never stopped Franco from continuing to have contact with the girl.

Fox News on April 3 reports that Franco “seemingly tried to get a 17-year-old girl into a hotel room with him.” After meeting Franco outside of the Broadway show “Of Mice and Men,” the girl known only as Lucy, posted photos showing the night she met Franco on the streets of New York City. Then this interaction between the two continued.

She went further than that when posting a video of Franco chatting with her. She tagged him and the social media relationship was launched. Apparently Lucy was proud of herself for grabbing the attentions of the 34-year-old actor, who is a man old enough to be her father. She shared their messages, video and pictures with the world on social network, which is just what most star struck teens would do.

This interaction between the middle-aged actor and basically a kid, reads like high school antics. At one point Lucy asks Franco to send a picture of himself with her name on a sign in the picture. He did just what she asked.

The messages were grabbed in screen shots before they were deleted. When Fox reached out for a comment from Franco, the rep didn’t return their call. The actor then tweeted a bizarre comment:

“I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you”

Now it's the parent's fault? What is up with Franco's extracurricular activities?
