James Franco caught up in under age controversy

James Franco has managed to get himself involved in a bit of a controversy, after screenshots of texts between the 35-year-old actor and a 17-year-old girl, have leaked online.

James apparently met teenage, Lucy Clode when she was waiting outside Franco’s Broadway show, Of Mice and Men.

Lucy who is from Scotland, took pictures and a video of James leaving the show.

She then posted both of these on Instagram and in the video you can hear Franco asking Lucy to post and tag him in it.

Lucy must of given James her mobile number, as screenshots have leaked online of the supposed texts that have taken place between the actor and 17-year-old.

In the texts, you can see the actor asking what age Lucy is and where she is staying.

James has commented on Twitter on the controversy saying: “I’M NOT! I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you.”
