James Franco tried to seduce a Scottish teenager in a series of flirty Instagram messages before learning she was only 17, a new report alleges.

According to the Mirror (UK), the blonde teenager ran into the star in New York on a birthday trip with her mother, posting a short video of their meeting.

Some time later, the pair begun to message on Instagram.

James Franco Instagram Seduction!
Did James Franco try to seduce a teenager online? A series of screen shots alleges as much. See for yourself and decide.

Screen shots of the exchange have now surfaced online, with images purportedly from the 35-year-old actor's verified account on the social network.

In them, he asks her where she’s from, how long she’s in New York, who she’s with, where she’s staying, and whether or not she has a boyfriend.

The teen explains her trip to New York was a gift for her 18th birthday, in a few days. He responds, “You’re 18?” before asking for a phone number.

“You’re single? Where’s your hotel? Should I rent a room?"

When the schoolgirl asks for proof that he's who he says he is, a photo of James waving appears, followed by “Yes or no? Tomorrow or Thursday."

After the girl made James take another picture of himself holding a piece of paper with her name on it, he seems to get cold feet about the meetup.

Learning her 18th birthday is in MAY, not days away, may have put the kibosh on this potential hookup ... which might actually have been legitimate.

After the alleged, bizarre attempt at online courtship went viral, Franco said that he is not into underage girls and posted this classic Tweet ...

What do you think? Did James just get caught hollering at a girl half his age? And if so, are you actually surprised? Share your comments below ...

UPDATE: Was this all a hoax to promote his new movie? Follow the link and decide for yourself, but it's starting to look that way. Classic Franco.

How is this his fault? Oh but Hugh Hefner's taste in women is fine? Idiots stop making stupid comments!

Franco needs to change his taste in women if he wishes to continue his career. This just looks very bad because it is! I'm not a fan if his, but there are many who are. This is just too creepy.

She needs a whopping. She's a little girl acting grow with a man twice her age. People want to give James heat, but not mention how this girl is acting so slutty. The fact that she wasn't truthful about her age shows that she would have slept with him. I honestly do feel sorry for men when they innocently get caught up in this mess.

She should've told him that she was 17 he assumed since he met her on a trip for her 18th birthday that she was 18. He wasn't wrong in this, she was.
