| Filed under: Oops!James Franco


James Franco got a scolding from his his professor after he was caught texting during class.

Sources say the actor who is currently studying filmmaking at New York University's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts was using his phone in class and "the professor was so annoyed that James wasn't paying attention, he told him to go wait outside the class. He didn't care James is a celebrity."

James was immediately humiliated and "felt like a kid."

Shame on you, James!! Just because you're a celeb, it doesn't mean you're allowed to break the rules!

  4. 4

    OMG, he was texting in class? Doesn't everyone? It doesn't mean he thinks he's allowed to break the rules, it just makes him normal. James is one of the most down to earth celebs out there.

    I text in class, does that mean I'm a celebrity and "not allowed to break the rules" God….people are stupid. I text in class all the time, I must be a freakin' celebrity then lmao. On another note: James Franco= YUMMY!

    Re: BELLABABY12 – LOL @ art school.

  12. 12

    Perez, shut up. Everyone texts or has texted in class. This is not news.

  13. 13

    I'm sure he wasn't texting in class because he thought "I'm a celebrity so I should be able to text in class." You guys are the biggest spinners. Anyone could be texting in class, celebrity or not. He just got caught, that's all.

  14. 14

    how else can he talk to his dealer?

  16. 16

    his teacher is an asshole

  17. 17

    Rookie mistake. I woulda thrown his a*& outta class too. Sorry….The Dude is a serious student!

  18. 18

    he did what 99% of every other student has done at one time

  19. 19

    everyone does this…who cares?

  20. 20

    "James was immediately humiliated and "felt like a kid."
    Really..felt like a kid? Who are your sources, Perez? Did anyone really ask him how he felt?

  21. 21

    No, not everyone is disrespectful enough to text and read the paper in class. Not everyone is a douche.

  22. 22

    Re: mozoggy

    haha Exactly. And he is looking mighty fine in that picture.

  23. 23

    I'm a math professor in NYC and I do the same with my students. Big whoop.

  24. 24

    oh fuck off, everyone texts during class.. i do, and i think most 'normal' students have done it once or twice.. and your're saying that because he's a celebrity he's not allowed..? thát sounds not right to me. leave him alone

  25. 25

    and i think he's teacher is a freakin bastard who was 'proving that he's above the whole celebrity thing' by singling him out. i bet he sees students text in his class all the time, but when james franco, the actor, does it, he somehow sees the need to make an example out of him? ahole

  26. 26

    I hope James reads this: you look sooooooo much hotter with shorter hair! and who the hell doesnt occasionally text during class, the fact that this made headlines is pretty stupid!

  27. 27

    I find it funny when I see people text in class because they are usually the same morons that barely pass the class.

  28. 28

    Re: Helium_Queen

    Not EVERYONE apparently just nerds like me don't. I get the last laugh for my straight A's while the texters struggle through college same morons with no brains.

  29. 29

    Re: mozoggy

    Yea people that don't text are usually the successful students and pays off HA.

  30. 30

    Re: mozoggy – thank you! 2nd that…

  31. 31

    honestly, perez, its obviously not him thinking hes better because hes famous, everyone does that

  32. 32

    Ok. This is stupid. EVERYONE texts durning class. I realize it's probably annoying for professors but seriously… why does anyone care about this?

  33. 33

    I love him–he is just so James Dean

  34. 34

    I think everyone has sent a text while in class. If anything it makes him normal.

    My profs do the same thing when they catch someone texting.

  35. 35

    i don't text through class nor do most of my class mates. the only students who do that are already failing/bound to fail or go to public universities.

  36. 36

    Re: jillbeans – oh does that make you better than me now? i get straight A's and i text. Get off your high horse and stop talking down to people just because they text in class.

  37. 37

    I always text during class! And Tisch is not prestigious. In the words of Danielle on RHNJ - PAY ATTENTION, PUH-LEAZE

  38. 38

    Lame! Who doesn't text in class?

  39. 39

    LMAO! sounds like high school

    Re: cmh1083 – agreed!!

  40. 40

    Not texting in class is an unspoken rule. People do it even though it's completely annoying and inappropriate. It's not a celeb thing at all.

  41. 41

    Re: Soda-Pop-Lover – LMAO!!!!!!

    I am currently in college. I've yet to attend a class that on the first day..all professors review rules and expectations. The first one on the list is turn off your cell phone and no texting during class. Most students who take their work seriously
    do not attempt to text in class. At college level I would find it humiliating to be asked
    to leave the classroom. You are supposed to be adults…remember?

  44. 44

    That professor's an ass and probably called him out BECAUSE he's famous. Who the hell doesn't text during class?! This isn't high school, dude.

  45. 45

    Perez…Just because he is a celeb it doesn't mean he can't text in class like everyone else…douche!

  46. 46

    Please.. I go to NYU, EVERYONE texts during class (if it's a lecture). You just have to be sneaky about it. He must have been obvious about it, and thought he'd get away with it.

  47. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Shannon92 – No, he sounds like a good professor who's not afraid to teach Franco some classroom respect, famous or not.

  48. 48

    What the hell, who doesn't text during class?
    My professors don't give shit if you use your phone during class, as long as you don't interrupt them…

  49. 49

    why did this even make news? Why do we need to know this? Jesus.

  50. 50

    Sounds like Franco was targeted BECAUSE he's a celebrity. Everybody texts in class. The prof probably just wanted to make an example out of him.
