James Franco loves to take it off online. This is obvious.

Despite making headlines for hitting on an underage girl using Instagram this month, James is still leaving a racy mark on the Interwebs early and often.

Check out the actor's latest suggestive bedroom selfie:

Does he have pants on? Possibly. Does it matter? Not really.

Seemingly wearing nothing, Franco is seen in the above photo relaxing in the sheets, one hand on his phone and the other out of the frame, toward the bottom.

The caption: "WTF HAPPENED? I was waiting for you!!!!!"

What happened? Who was he waiting for? Mysterious!

James Franco probably still lists "actor" as his main profession when he's updating his own Wikipedia page, but these days Franco seems to focus most of his attention on side projects.

Whether he's writing poetry, teaching, lying in bed shirtless with Keegan Allen or hitting on teenage girls, James has a lot on his plate.

But clearly his favorite hobby remains obsessing over Seth Rogen's naked body.

First James and Seth filmed "Bound 3" together, a hilarious parody of a Kim and Kanye music video that heavily featured - you guessed it - a semi-nude Seth Rogen.

Now James has taken his interest in his BFF's man bits to a new level with a series of paintings portraying Rogen in various stages of undress.

James Franco sure does love getting shirtless with other men.

We're not judging, we're just taking note of the actor's Bound 3 video alongside a half-naked Seth Rogen and also of a picture that went live this week on his Instagram account.

According to a recent report, Beyonce and Jay-Z will not attend next month's wedding between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

But James Franco said on The View this week that not only is he invited to the festivities in France... Kanye asked him and Seth Rogen to perform their "Bound 3" parody video the night before his big day!

"Two weeks ago we got a call from Kanye,” Franco said. “Seth and I were on the phone and we thought he was going to let us have it, but he loved [the video]... and I think I can say it now because I'm pretty sure it's not going to happen, he wanted us to perform it live the night before his wedding in Versailles."

James Franco is an American actor, director, screenwriter, producer, teacher, author and poet, according to the stirring first line of his Wikipedia page.

He is also 36 years old today, born one day before what would have been the most appropriate celebrity birthday ever. Just missed 4/20, man. So close.

When he's not making out with Seth Rogen, trying to pick up underage girls on Instagram or calling N.Y. Times critics bitches, he does actual work, and lots of it.

He's as educated and versatile as he is talented, awkward and hilarious, making for a rare combination in today's often banal, celebrity-obsessed culture.

It's hard not to think foundly of the guy. Check out the photo gallery below as we pay tribute to some of our favorite pics of Franco and the many reasons we love him ...

Oh, James Franco. Does your ability to involve yourself in weird scandals know no bounds?

James Franco On Stage

Fresh off his scandalous flirtation with teenager Lucy Clode, Franco finds himself at the center of another controversy - this one involving his personal attack of New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley. 

The Times published a review of Brantley's that featured some extremely negative comments about Franco's performance in the Broadway revival of the play Of Mice and Men, and the temperamental actor quickly took to Twitter to express his displeasure.

"SADLY BEN BRANTLEY AND NYT EMBARASSED THEMSELVES," Franco tweeted (yes, he's adopted the Kanye-style all-caps approach to online expression). "BRANTLEY IS SUCH A LITTLE B!TCH HE SHOULD BE WORKING FOR GAWKER.COM INSTEAD OF THE PAPER OF RECORD. THE THEATER COMMUNITY HATES HIM, and for good reason HE's an idiot."

James Franco has shared a new selfie of himself lounging in bed, begging for followers in the language of a web spam bot in an attempt to be funny.

We think. One never really knows how much of an act James Franco's creepiness is. He would definitely pretend to be creepy for fun, but then again ...

That James Franco Instagram scandal turned out to be real and involved him sort of seducing a teenager. Dude got played, but still. It makes you think.

Anyway, back to the picture below. "I AMOST FOLLOW 3000!! AT 2M FOLLOWERS ILL FOLLOW 5000," he wrote, while struggling to turn off caps lock.

James Franco Selfie

Tired? Stoned? Seductive? Any/all of the above? Acting? Real?

It is not clear if this is performance art, a skewering of the superfluous search for positive reinforcement on social media, or an actual attempt to get more followers.

Or perhaps a little of both? One never knows with Franco.

It is also unclear if he intentionally misspelled ALMOST or eschewed punctuation deliberately, but guy has a second career as a spammer if he ever wants it.

In any case, teenage girls and fellow weirdos everywhere, FOLLOW JAMES FRANCO ON INSTAGRAM if you want more sexiness like this in your feed.

It looks like the James Franco Instagram scandal was real, and really embarrassing for the star, who apologized for it on Live with Kelly and Michael today.

If you missed it, screen grabs of the actor flirting with a teenage girl via Instagram went viral, and were apparently not a hoax to promote his movie Palo Alto.

"I was feeling awkward ... I didn't want to come on the show and just feel awkward," James Franco, 35, confessed to Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan.

"I'm embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky."

"It's the way that people meet each other today, but what I've learned - I guess because I'm new to it - is you don't know who's on the other end."

"You get a feel for them, you don't know who you're talking to," he lamented, adding that by any measure. "I used bad judgment and learned my lesson."

Could the James Franco Instagram scandal be an elaborate marketing hoax? That theory is going around after the trailer for his new film just dropped.

In Palo Alto, James plays a teacher seducing a student. Coincidence?

Lucy Clode, James Franco

Here's the detailed background on the story if you missed it yesterday:

On Tuesday (April 1), 17-year-old Lucy Clode met James Franco, 35, outside his Broadway show Of Mice & Men and filmed an Instagram video.

He asked her to tag him in it on Instagram. She obliged, and then - according to leaked screen grabs - the actor proceeded to flirt with her hard.

On April 2, an apparent exchange between James and Lucy went viral. In it, he asks her how old she is (she says 17), then asks when her birthday is.

The conversation goes on for some time, with Franco allegedly proving it's him, then asking where she lives, what hotel she’s at, and for her number.

Eventually, when she reveals she's turning 18 in May, he backs off.
