    According to the first picture, I think he likes her… XD

  2. The vile dike says – reply to this


    He must love them firm and tight…
    Oh God!.. Karma is delicious when it attacks slyly on the frontline using the weaknesses of the person.

  3. 3

    He is a freak and should be arrested…anyone that knows him knows he likes young girls…jail him…I could care less that he is an actor or handsome…he is just a man…a loser.

    i dont see how this is an inappropriate conversation. He is nearly 40 and coming on really strong, but i dont think any lines were crossed at all. Bad choice in girls though since she screen shot that shit and put it all out there. im not a fan of james franco particularly, but it would suck not being able to trust anyone

  5. Bitchface says – reply to this


    There's nothing cute or flirty about this exchange he comes off really creepy, there's so many nice young beautiful (legal) girls out or guys if that's his flavor he cloud be messing with. Fan lost.

  6. The Maverick says – reply to this


    Um well first of all the legal age of consent in NYC is 17, so even if he was flirting and even if they did something, it wouldn't be illegal, know your facts.

  7. MGFunk says – reply to this


    Anyone looking to fuck JF is a sick and twisted motherfucker. The dude looks Aids-ey.

  8. Justin S. says – reply to this


    Props to The Maverick, who has the only educated comment. She is 17, New York State's age of consent, so nothing inappropriate is going on. If he was flirting with her then to say that he's into "young girls" is a disgusting exaggeration. He's not into KIDS, he's flirting with a chick who is legally allowed to make her own choices with who she sleeps with and it certainly doesn't look like she's complaining.

  9. Bitchface says – reply to this


    I think if it was your 17 Y.O. daughter or son and some random 38 year old guy off the internet was trying to hook up with them you would feel strongly different.

  10. Designer Girl says – reply to this


    He's a horny man and she's a young lady who sounds like she has a lot of common sense by not wanting to hook up. It makes him look immature but nothing illegal is going on.

  11. 11

    he is significantly older and obviously they would have nothing in common except perhaps a mutual attraction but maverick is right. the age of consent here in nyc is 17 so although it may seem a little creepy it isnt actually illlegal. just frowned upon

  12. liz says – reply to this


    Re: Bitchface – By that logic if the age of consent was 16 or 15 or 14 or heck even 12, you'd say that it was cool for a nearly 40-year-old man to flirt with girls of those ages. He is too fucking old to be pursuing a 17-year-old TEENAGER and I don't give a FUCK if the age of consent in NY is 17.

  13. Fikr says – reply to this


    At 17 you know what you're doing no harm no foul.

  14. anonymous says – reply to this


    He's really building up a reputation. I was at his book reading event in San Francisco at Castro Theatre and he took a girl who was attending with him (I'm assuming back to his hotel) after it was over. I was standing right in front of her as one of his handlers approached her in line to get seated and she ultimately left the building in the same town car with him. I happened to find her instagram after looking at the Castro Theatre location tag and I found out she was NINETEEN years old. Definitely legal, but still pretty young. I'm definitely not judging, but damn.

  15. SarafrmCali says – reply to this


    I have to say I'm so bothered by this . I'm a JF Follower and fan. I can't stop hoping it's not true due to the fact that it is creepy but it really seem true. This girl has a real Instagram page . I think he f***ed up! I feel kinda bad for him he is real close to all his followers and he make you feel close to him as well. I guess so of us had him on a pedestal and thought he was this perfect guy funny smart romantic sexy down to earth . I know he is not perfect but it was just a matter of time before this happened he is always saying how young his fans are. I'm just a few years younger then him but I'm quite sure to old for him at least what he is used too. So being so into and close to his Instagram was eventually going to be to tempting women and girls Sending him DM's and throwing themselfs at them he can have his pick so maybe jus a moment of weakness for him or lonely and he is a man still I guess. Just thinking with the wrong head. Either way not illegal but such a bad decision. Probably not the first time he has done it but the first time some one turned him down and put it out there. Kinda mad at this dumb decision he has made if it is true I want to scream at him why would you do this! Dam dam dam James.

  16. Bitchface says – reply to this


    Re: Fikr – Wrong person were on the same side of this argument. I think James has been hanging out with Terry Richardson too much.

    Re: liz
    if no laws are being broken here and no one is getting hurt, worry about your own life. i'm sure you've ogled a younger man a few times in your life.

  18. Clariseton says – reply to this


    I think very lucky gal! Lol, Everyone just needs to mind their own business.. It's human nature! Go stock the real perverts who need to be caught. If it was Mr. Franco flirting with you.. You would be smitten!

  19. T says – reply to this


    You didn't post the screens from iMessage…meaning that now she has his celphone number! and on the screens he says what hotel is she staying, should he rent a room and then he starts to say bye and her to message him when she wants to meet…the more interesting parts you didnt post…lol

  20. UMadandUgly says – reply to this


    Re: liz – Oh shut up. If she's 18, does it change your perspective? Apparently NYC does't agree with your bloviating. If the guy can get 18 year old cuties at his age, more power to him. Judgmental cow.

  21. Dayna says – reply to this


    Re: chillthefout – Oh great! So you're a pedo then?

  22. moooose says – reply to this


    Its interesting how someone could go from a charming sexy intellectual to a disgusting creepy perv over night.

  23. Eve says – reply to this


    Re: UMadandUgly – So you're a creep then? Good to know! I'm 19 and if someone his age were hitting on me, I would be insanely uncomfortable and creeped out! But hey! If you enjoy stalking younger women then all power to ya! Just don't be surprised if you're hit with a harassment charge sometime in the future…idiot.

  24. k says – reply to this


    This all went down on April Fool's Day AND the day the trailer for his new movie (which features him as an adult soccer coach dating a high schooler) premiered. Cleaaaaarly a prank/publicity stunt.

    You could get arrested and charged just for talking to an undercover officer and arranging to meet a young girl. You've got to be joking. What a huge let down.

  27. Evan says – reply to this


    This kind of stank don't wash off easily.

  28. Mark says – reply to this


    On her instagram, she posted a photo holding alcohol and captioning it #18th birthday 4 weeks ago. She was 18. And even if she wasn't legal age of is consent is 17. In NY and Scotland. So there isn't anything illegal going on here. Plus I love how Perez didn't post the text msg. Where she said she will be back ones she's "18" and that was it.

  29. Mixhi says – reply to this


    If any of you have read his book you would all know that he made it clear he keeps girls in every city. It was disgusting and shocking and he talked about how he slept with young girls at colleges. No surprise there.And does anyone else remember when he was obsessed with Selena Gomez and she was freaked out by him? I will not judge but I think he is a lonely guy that needs to find someone to love…

  30. slamdunk says – reply to this


    Illegal maybe not, immoral definitely yes. i didn't care for the statement suggesting parent keep underage teens away from him, WTF you're almost a 40 year old man just don't associate with barely legal people, problem solved.

  31. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Mark – Well, if he were lonely, he wouldnt get any less lonely by bedding down random ingenues instead of picking one decent grown up woman and building a strong family and a marriage.

  32. Sarah says – reply to this


    Hey, in New York 17 is legal.

  33. Snap says – reply to this


    I'm disappointed I was hoping he was gay, i wanted to give him the best head he'll ever have.

  34. Loopaloo says – reply to this


    I'm not saying that it's appropriate for a guy his age to be persuing a girl that young, but the article is implying that his actions are illegal. The legal consent here in Scotland is 16 and 17 over in NYC, nothing illegal is taking place whether we agree with the situation (if it is in fact true) or not.

  35. ummm says – reply to this


    the point isn't aimed at this being legal…hopefully you people have daughters who grow up to be lured in by 30 year old men.
    What would a 17 year old have in common with a 30+ year old?
    what would they talk about?
    where would they go on dates? you can't even take her to the bar/ decent clubs
    how would she be able to hold a conversation with the rest of your 30+ friends?
    Old men taking advantage of teens in their "not a girl not yet a woman" phase… and these dumb little girls fall for it. Pathetic on both ends.

  36. Jeff says – reply to this


    You do realize that he has a movie being released in a little over a month, in which he play a man in his mid-30's that has a relationship with a 17 year old, right? A little too convenient to NOT be publicity, wouldn't you think?

  37. eww says – reply to this


    stop talking about this being legal…thats not the point. The point is he's a thirsty ass weirdo who clearly can't get anyone his own age because they know he's off so he uses his celeb status to fuck dumb little girls.

  38. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: @v@ – Intended to reply with that to Mixhi.

  39. brendaboo says – reply to this


    Is it me or has he became an attention media whore? I love James Franco and really couldn't care any less what he does in his private life, but lately he has become so brazen and almost "let me throw this in your face" and get a reaction. Why would he even warn parents to keep their teens away from him, does he lack self control. Consensual or not, leaving a message with innuendos that anyone should keep another person away from him sounds like he needs some type of mental screening.

  40. Shanne says – reply to this


    Re: MGFunk – She is not a NYC citizen though. In Scotland it is not legal. Her customs and I am sure her parents customs are not the same as NYC. There were there for her birthday. They were not however there so she could consent to anything. I do not think that state law justifies this particular scenario.

  41. Cory says – reply to this


    Re: Mark – The age of consent in the UK (Where Scotland is) is actually 16. Even if all this was going on, I don't think there's too much wrong with it. Yeah, it'll be frowned upon, but there's no legality issue. People worry too much about everyone else's business and not enough about their own.

  42. Ashley says – reply to this


    she's from Scotland. where the legal age is 16! plus as she said, she was there for her 18th birthday so she was nearly turning 18 so whats the problem. He is coming off a bit desperate but its not illegal what he was doing.

  43. 43

    I swear if I see her I would slap the shit out of her. Come on really is James Fucking Franco you dumbass lol. She should be proud that he took interest in her what a bitch. See James Franco is so sexy in his own weird way, I swear that man is just H O T T HOT LMAO. I would love to meet him and show him an amazing Dominican time, them sent a pic to that chick of what she is missing. JAMES FRANCO YO TE QUIERO PAPI CHULO Y ME GUSTARIA QUE TU ME RESORVIERAS.

  44. Martin says – reply to this


    Re: SarafrmCali

    Jees! You sound like I did after I caught my ex cheating. Of course he has lots of sex with lots of different women - he's single and successful. Just because he doesn't scream about it from the rooftop, doesn't mean his PRIVATE life is duller than his PUBLIC one.

  45. Gayle says – reply to this


    Well, let's consider the fact that he is in a new film called Palo Alto in which he plays … wait for it! … a middle-aged man who interacts inappropriately with a teenaged high-school girl. So, let's not rule out the idea that this is a stunt meant to draw attention to the film.

  46. Amanda says – reply to this


    He is looking like shiiittt

  47. willow says – reply to this


    He's having intercourse with different women different ages

  48. Ricci says – reply to this


    She's almost 18, she knows what she's doing… It's not like she's 12. When I was in high school ALL of my friends lied about their ages and dated older guys. This is nothing new.

  49. Juliet says – reply to this


    it's so fuckin easy to pretend to have a conversation with anyone. she probably just changed the contact name to james franco and all and had her friend type all that crap. seriously.

  50. mishelle says – reply to this


    You know… I'm not one to comment on these sites, but James Franco has done nothing wrong. If anything, it is SHE that has done something wrong. For one, why would you screen shot your conversations and send them out all over the internet? Shame on you. That's a private thing… I know she probably would have wanted to let everyone know that James Franco wanted her Taco, but seriously, that's not right. Not to mention, when he says "Do you have a BF?" she says "Not if you're around"… well that's leading him in the wrong direction as well. Why do this, and then put it out for the world to see. Then the bitch says she's 18, and then says she's NEARLY 18… either way, she's legally allowed to screw who she wants. James Franco isn't in the wrong, this girl is NOT 14 years old, she's an adult.

  51. 51

    I think he meant he didn't want to be set up by underage girls. She did say she was in NYC for her 18th birthday.

  52. Lily says – reply to this


    I really don't think this is actually genuine. I feel like it was probably some sort of stunt or just some photoshopping. Who knows. This guy could probably hook up with any woman he wanted, and he really doesn't seem the type to be attracted to a child. Since 17 is legally a child, even if she was legal for sex in NY. She isn't at all pretty, she has a very strange face. But no doubt she'll probably be offered some deals now that she's made herself "famous" lol!!

  55. Ret11 says – reply to this


    Re: liz – Well I don't give A FUCK that I'm not allowed to rob a liquor store. So I'm going to do it. Oh no, wait…laws are there for a reason. If the age of consent is 17, then who the fuck are you to tell him that he's breaking the law by hooking up with a 17 year old tart?

    And yes, she is a tart. "I don't have a boyfriend if you're around." WHAT A NICE GIRL! Bet her boyfriend feels REALLY great about that one. Two-bit whore.

  56. 56

    The article states she is in NYC for her 18th birthday and only there a few days. That would imply that she really is more 18 than 17. And if you guys have an issue with NYC's legal age of consent being 17 then you should take it up with their state legislators. In Connecticut the legal age of consent is 16. And in some states it's as young as 15 that I know of. Lets be pragmatic folks, 17 turning 18 in a day or two is quite old enough to sleep with whoever she wants.

  57. RMer says – reply to this


    Re: Fikr – I agree that this is not appropriate, but your reasoning is weak. There is a reason the age of consent is 17 and not 12, and we saw it play out here. The girl moved on as she was more than capable of making the decision. Younger that might not have been the case. I'm with you in sentiment, not with you in your reasoning.

    Re: Bitchface – Let's just say he did this with my daughter, he wouldn't be recognizable as an actor when I was done having my "talk" with him. Of course, my daughter would never carry on such a conversation in the first place, but that's not the point.

  62. Steph says – reply to this


    Really? He asked when she turned 18 … WHO WOULDNT!? Its Franco.

  63. common_sensory says – reply to this


    Who cares? She's old enough to consent by NY law, he probably Googled it first. It's pretty yucky, but not illegal. He looks sweaty and gross in that pic…and his nails are dirty. I'm more concerned about that.

  65. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Steph – Keeping an eye to age of consent is just wise and also respects the law. He doesn't need that shiz. Then again, he doesn't need greenhorns either. He needs a good woman. I guess this is what he does until she finds him. That, or he wants to enjoy twenty years of extended adolescence. Some don't get past that.

    Re: Pissed off Dad – Yes, your daughter will have those conversations with men. She'll also get drilled in the ass one day. By more than one, I'd imagine (if she hasn't already.) She'll probably swallow, too. She doesn't need you as a protector, if she grows up to be a strong woman.

    In short, stop acting as if you're a ridiculously sexist big man, and start acting as if you're a father. In other words, realise that your child will not always be a child. Try to accomplish something with your life other than being a father. Nobody likes the guy that is JUST a dad and constantly talks about his children 24/7 because he's never done anything else.

  79. Elizabeth Sullivan says – reply to this


    You know what? Fuck those of you who want to believe this shit, This is either a very elaborate Internet hoax or a publicity stunt for his movie Palo Alto. Either way, I don't buy it for a second.
    Just because uptight America has the legal age as 18 doesn't mean it's the same way in other parts of the world, and a girl who is almost 18 is not like this "mystery" girl is hardly an innocent child. I mean, the drinking age in America is 21, but in Canada it's 19.

    Finally, do you really believe that James has enough time to be chasing after girls when he's too busy to sleep?

    Don't believe everything you find online people.

    Since when is 17 underage? I don't know if it's only in Missouri, but I personally asked a police officer myself when I was 17 because I didn't want to get him in trouble. I think you should cut the man some slack because he's obviously not the only guy who's ever done that. She also had a part in it too.

  85. Seth Abramson says – reply to this


    Age of consent is 17 in NYC you hypocritical ignorant morons. She is smoking hot and even more so in her profile pic. Franco is the man, living the life everyone of you wish you had. He could be 50+ Depp and Pitt and it still wouldnt matter, if you look good (like these guys do) AND IT IS LEGAL than Godspeed my friends and everyone else pipe down. I like Franco even more now.

    WAY TO GO COMMENTERS! you made me defend him. lol. FIRST - she's of age for consent, not way younger as you're implying, secondly, he's not "nearly 40", he's 35. third, he asked if she had a boyfriend right at the get go! if he was truly sleazy he wouldn't even ask or about her age. fourthly, she looks rather of age in her avatar pic, like, his age old! fifthly, you people act like 35 is old, lol.. okay, guarantee with a clean shave he still gets carded, as I do over 40! And, ewwwww James, stay away from 17-19 yr olds, they are mostly dumb.

    why do people make such a big deal of james franco wanting to get laid, its not a big deal and shes legal anyways. Lucy and her family just want attention and money. And if this isnt ok how is Madonna who is 55 having a boyfriend who is 26 ok?

  98. Britty says – reply to this


    He did nothing illegal, and I guareenteed that girl was probably stoked that James Franco was attracted to her and wanted to hook up. That being said im many women WOULD agree to meet with him after this exchange. His life is constantly in the spotlight, give him a break. Lucy here messed up by posting this here. She could of kept this quiet instead of sharing that she missed her opportunity to bang James Franco. THis is just a HUGE overeaction. He is not creepy at all, probably just lonely.

    Ok, he's might be a creep, although not necessarily due to that conversation. He didn't do anything illegal, hardly anything immoral, and people asking "what can a 17 year old and a 30-40 year old have in common??!" are missing the point. They might not WANT to have anything in common except sex. Yes, sex. It can be much more pressure and stress having it with someone your own age, in this case it's clear that neither part expect this to end up in kids and marriage.
