The selfie seen ’round the world wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for James Franco! Wait, what?
The actor turned UCLA professor is claiming he came up with the idea of taking a selfie with his industry peers when he and Anne Hathaway hosted the Academy Awards three years ago.
"I took some videos and selfies at my Oscars and I got criticized for it. Now [Ellen DeGeneres is] getting a lot of attention for hers. I don't get it.
You could possibly be onto something there, James. But you must remember selfies weren't all the rage until recently!
James was just too ahead of the curve for anyone else to understand. Lolz!
