Even James Franco’s brother doesn’t know what James Franco is doing

People seem to want to talk to Dave Franco more about James Franco than the movie he's promoting.

Dave Franco is currently promoting Neighbors, and but it seems most people would rather talk to him about his more famous brother’s nude selfies and naked paintings.

Conan O’Brien told Dave that he knows he shouldn’t have to answer for his brother’s actions—but made him do it anyway.

The younger Franco isn’t on social media, so he somehow managed to avoid the notorious photos until his press tour for Neighbors. In his bother’s defense, Dave said compared to the other things James has done, the nude photos and paintings seem tame. 

Dave has a point. After James Franco sent inappropriate messages to an underage fan (and laughed it off), these selfies are oddly dignified.
