James Franco Denies Trying to Pick High School Girls

May 2, 2014 James Franco

James Franco had reportedly tried to pick-up a 17 year old girl last month via Instagram. The 36 year old star opens up about the issue after one whole month of the incident taking place.

"Seventeen is legal in New York, but that being said, it's still pretty damn young," Franco said. "They make it out like I'm pursuing young women. I'm not going to high schools for dates. I'm leaving my work and they're coming there. So, I'm seeing attractive women."

"I saw her and she said on her page, 'I love James Franco! Blahblahblah. 'Well, OK, you look interesting. I don't know how old you are," he recalled. "I was a gentleman. I said, 'Do you have a boyfriend?' And her response was, 'Not when you're around.' So that to me sounds like, OK, she's interested."

"Here's what I'll say in her defence: I don't think she posted knowing what was going to happen. I think she was somebody who had 100, maybe at the most 500 friends on Twitter, or followers, or whatever. And she's thinking not, 'Here's a guy hitting on me,' she's thinking, 'Here's an image I have of James Franco hitting on me. Oh, my god! My friends will never believe this!'" the Palo Alto star said. "She's just used to tweeting something to her friends and she'll get like 20 likes and they'll say, 'Oh, I like your new dress,' or whatever. When she put that on, obviously people pick up on it. She even took it down, but again it was too late."

"My sense is that it turned bad on her," he continued. "Now people say I victim-bashed her or something. Like how is she a victim? Like anybody, I was just trying to meet somebody. It's just that my dirty s--t gets put out internationally."
