Without any prompting this morning James Franco told Kelly & Michael that he did try and hook up with the 17 year old female he met after one of the performances of his play. Lucy Clode was in New York as an 18th birthday present and shared her conversations with the actor with the world. In the conversations Franco asks how old Lucy is and where she is staying and from and who she is with and if he should get them a hotel room.
“I used bad judgment and learned my lesson,” he said.
He also seemed more concerned with the fact that he was caught and the conversation made public rather than the fact he was hitting on a 17 year old.
He went on to say, “I'm embarrassed and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky.” Yeah, social media is the problem here.
