WTF Alert: Did James Franco Try to Hook Up With a 17-Year-Old?

James Franco TimesTalks presents A Chat with Broadway's "Of Mice and Men" - Arrivals


As I’ve said before, loves, anyone can commit a minor indiscretion and generate a day’s worth of buzz, but in order for gossip to birth a true scandal, it requires the right person to be in the wrong place. And perhaps James Franco is about to find out what all of that really means….

A young pretty blonde named Lucy met the actor at an autograph signing in NYC on Tuesday and apparently started having a chat with him via private messages on Instagram. And let’s just say it appears as though he reallllly wanted to see her, going so far as asking if he should rent a room in the same hotel she was staying at and taking a picture of himself holding a sign with her name on it (yes, yes, I know about Catfishing and Photoshop, but this all seems very legit, n’estā€“ce pas?) Take a look at the screenshots of their conversation that Lucy posted and tell me if you think James was looking for some underage loving…







Of course, James tweeted a denial of all of this, saying, “Iā€™M NOT! I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you.ā€ But one of them isn’t telling the truth… which one is it, darlings? XOXO

  1. called out Said:

    She states that she’s not 18 and won’t be until May but then on one of her instagram photos, she say and I quote “it shouldn’t be a big deal because I am legal now, they are acting like I’m 12 or something”. This was what she wrote on April 2, the day after this alleged scandal happened?
    Why is she lying about her age?
    I call it a stunt for publicity for his new movie.

  2. Zonish Said:

    Franco is the liar.
    The pictures are pretty obvious.

  3. what WHAT Said:

    Exactly. there is a pic on her instagram that’s from a month ago and it says “18th”. She definitely wasn’t telling the truth. Must be a publicity stunt or something. Look out James!!! lol

  4. Laura Said:

    Could be cause the legal age in the UK is 16..

  5. check your facts Said:

    I think that the above author should be made aware that 16 is the legal age of consent in Scotland, where Lucy is from. So clearly she isn’t lying about her age, you just haven’t got your facts in order.

  6. Carla Said:

    17 is not illegal in Scotland. You can get married at 16. Whats the big deal??

  7. Pauline Said:

    Not even surprised he did that. Just look at his Fb, the guy is a bit of a creep, even if she was 18 it’s still more than 10yrs younger than her, what a freak. He sure is a good actor and freakin good looking but seems like a jerk ..

  8. kia kia mia Said:

    she handled it really well. hes so creepy and gross. poor girl everyone needs to stop calling her a liar. hes clearly in the wrong…..she handled it awsome. well done lucy!!

  9. Sophyyy Said:

    Ok The legal age for consent is 16 if the other person is under 18. If they’re not then it’s 18. Regardless I don’t know why she’s making a big deal 17 year old me would have climbed James Franco like a tree. Had she gone and it was a scandal she wanted that would’ve made a bigger scandal than a convo, plus it’s harder to deny. Honey shoulda done it while the offer was up xx

  10. ellez Said:

    ummm james is totally the one lying here. all the evidence says that he’s the one lying to all his fans

  11. Emma Said:

    Definitelly the information is very controversial, but this is serious because it doesn’t matter who’s lying, the point is that both actions are wrong. The one because it’s not correct to get involve into with a minor, and the onther one because it’s such despicable to lye in such a way about someone, even if that someone is a public person…
