The actor goes on the record on what he's even doing with Instagram these days.

James Franco has finally given an explanation for what he’s been doing on Instagram lately. Well, sort of.

Even David Letterman’s gotten wind of Franco’s recent antics, which included a near-naked selfie and naked portraits of Seth Rogen, and the host took him to task on what exactly is going on.

It’s interesting to see how Franco twists it, and while he insists that it’s all fun, he shovels some blame on the bloggers who follow him and write about his naked selfies.

“I didn’t ask you to look at it!” Franco said. “It’s what the people want! If you don’t want to see it, don’t follow me!”

Easier said than done, Franco.

James Franco says he's embarrassed about the whole sexting-a-teen thing
James Franco copped to it.  The 35-year-old actor’s text messages and Instagram DMs with a 17-year-old fan made the rounds on the Internet yesterday. They show Franco, currently acting in Of Mice and Men on Broadway, chatting up a young fan whom he'd met at an autograph signing. He asks if she has a boyfriend, when she turns 18, and if he should get a room at her hotel. See the full correspondence here.
