After a Broadway performance in Of Mice and Men, James Franco met a 17-year-old fan and proceeded to flirt with her via Instagram, until she reported the incident and turned him down. The response to this fiasco seemed fairly mild, considering 36-year-old James Franco was, in fact, attempting to sext a minor.
He made the daytime talk show rounds to discuss his film, Palo Alto, but made sure to just shrug and tell everyone he was "embarrassed" about the whole Instagram thing. His partially nude selfies that he has continued to post on his Instagram account have almost garnered more attention than the sexting scandal itself.
