Let’s begin the strange and true (?) story of James Franco trying to get with a teenage fan over social media.

It started when Instagram user lucy_clode went to some sort of signing.

Chris O’Dowd was there.

 

But so was James Franco.

She even took a couple selfies with him.

And a video where he told her, “You gotta tag me.”

Which she did, tagging his handle @jamesfrancotv.

 

It led to an Instagram direct message exchange.

That eventually moved to texting.

This raises a lot of questions, namely:

– Is this for real?

– Could a celebrity really be this careless with a fan?

– Is this some elaborate April Fool’s joke?

– IS THIS FOR REALSIES?

– Or is this some virtual performance art piece by Franco™ about hooking up in the digital age?

- Another plausible theory is that it's a publicity stunt for his upcoming film Palo Alto, where he plays a teacher who begins an affair with a high school student?

– Or something?
