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.”







Irish actor Chris O’Dowd was spotted sporting a new look as he walked around New York recently; however, it was all in the name of art.

The Moone Boy star was almost unrecognisable after he shaved his head and grew a particularly shaggy beard for his new role in Of Mice and Men on Broadway.

Our favourite funny man stars alongside James Franco and Leighton Meester as he plays the role of Lennie Small in the America play.

While he may have ditched his distinctive curly mop, it seems Chris is having a blast on the set.

Talking to The New York Times about working alongside the Roscommon native, James said: “He’s 90 percent less stoned than I was expecting. Also, I knew he’d be really smart, but he’s proven me wrong every day with that!”

He added: “I’d honestly heard great things about him. We have mutual friends, and everyone was like, ‘You know what? He’s an odd dude, but I think you’ll really like him.’”



Our own Chris O’Dowd is set to star in a Broadway rendition of John Steinbeck’s famous novel Of Mice and Men. O’Dowd will star as the character Lennie opposite James Franco who will play George.

The play is set to open April 16th and will be directed by Tony award winning director Anna D. Shapiro, whose credits include an on stage production of August: Osage County.

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester is also reportedly set to be starring in the highly anticipated production.
