James Franco tried to pick up a 17-year-old girl on Instagram

I wish this was an elaborate April Fools’ Day jokes, but unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. James Franco seriously tried to pick up at 17-year-old girl named Lucy Clode on Instagram. James really wanted to meet up with her at a New York hotel where she was staying since she’s actually from Scotland. She even met him the day before all this went down outside of the theatre where Of Mice and Men is happening. It’s all so bizarre.

Apparently this hopped from Instagram to private text messages, and the story is a bit murky here since we don’t know a) how they ended up online (she’s 17; of course she posted them), b) if they actually met up (eh…) or c) if these are even real (I feel like they are?). In any case, have a read and hop behind the cut for the whole thing and clue me in. This is real, right? And pretty gross? Also, when will celebrities learn to stop trying to pick up girls on social media? It’s mind-blowing.

Kim Kardashian Laughs At Herself Over Bound Video

Kim Kardashian is laughing at herself — who knew this was possible? She thought James Franco and Seth Rogen‘s Bound2 video parody was funny. Now let’s see if Kanye laughs along. If he does, the world will explode. The original video, featuring a topless Kim K bouncing on Kanye’s lap as he’s riding a motorcycle was so bad, it begged for parody, and Mr. Franco and Mr. Rogen delivered like Dominos.

She tweeted,

You nailed it!!! Sooo funny! RT @Sethrogen: #Bound3 http://youtube.com/watch?v=Y3TTiHRrEBE ….  Enjoy!!!!!!

With a link to the video.

Smart move on her part. Very smart.
