James Franco's flirting with a 17-year old girl has sent shock ripples all across Hollywood. The screencap of Lucy Clode, the 17 year old Scottish girl vacationing in New York, displayed the eagerness of the "Palo Alto" actor to date a much younger girl than his age. The 35 year old actor shamelessly hit on the barely legal teen, asking if he should rent a room for the two in New York.
After the controversial hooking up with the teen, James Franco emerged apologetic in an interview on "Live with Kelly & Michael" saying that his hitting on the underage girl was a result of a "lack of a better judgement."
Seems like fans and his co-stars are still not ready to forgive James Franco for soliciting sex from an underage girl. Franco has been the subject of countless shows and twitter posts-all geared toward mocking the curly haired thespian for his lapse in judgment.
