"Seventeen is legal in New York, but that being said, it's still pretty damn young," Franco said.

James Franco, who spends his life mystifying the public with a thick sheen of irony and shifting intentions, dropped all pretense on Friday morning to issue a very awkward mea culpa.
Appearing on “Live with Kelly and Michael,” Franco addressed one of the weirder news stories of the week: His apparent flirtation, via Instagram’s private messaging service, with a 17-year-old Scottish girl who was visiting New York.
After she obliged, the two began an alleged conversation on the popular social media site where Franco asked her for her phone number, where she was staying, when she turns 18 and if they could meet up. I mean, I have a very good life, but not only do I have to the embarrassing kind of rituals of meeting someone, but if I do that, then it gets published for the world. Still, he took the opportunity to stand up for Clode, who was visiting New York City with her family as an early 18th birthday present."Here's what I'll say in her defense: I don't think she posted knowing what was going to happen. "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. ' And her response was, 'Not when you're around.' So that to me sounds like, OK, she's interested."Franco took a beating in the press, so he was hesitant to say much more.James Franco keeps himself busy with countless artistic pursuits simultaneously, but he was caught unknowingly pursuing an underage girl via Instagram this week, as screenshots of their conversation surfaced online.STORY: James Franco on Shia La Beouf's Behavior: ' Clever or Pathological?
