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.

Lindsay Lohan made headlines and raised many an eyebrow earlier this month after a list of celebs she slept with was published by a celebrity gossip magazine.

A list, according to In Touch, allegedly penned by LiLo herself.

One of her supposed conquests, James Franco, addresses this claim in an interview with Los Angeles magazine, saying the Mean Girls star lied about him.

Franco, who talks about his new collection of poems, is asked "You wrote about several celebrities in this book, including a couple of poems about Lindsay Lohan."

"Have you gotten any response from any of these people?"

The actor then answers, "No, I didn't write anything bad about them. And Lindsay herself has told lies about me with her 'people she's slept with' list!"

"So I feel like what I said is much less than what she's said."

The Lindsay Lohan sex list was reportedly penned at Beverly Hills Hotel in 2013, with LiLo trying to impress pals with her "personal conquest list."

Some of stars' names were blurred out due to "legal reasons," while a rep for Garrett Hedlund, another supposed conquest, called it "completely not true."

Scroll through and see the Lindsay Lohan sex list below ...

James Franco is known for making strange choices when it comes to his career. Signing on to the cast of General Hospital when he was already a well-known and well-paid film actor? Uh, OK.

This week Franco has become an outspoken defender of Shia LaBeouf.

In a New York Times op-ed, Franco defends everything from LaBeouf's plagiarism scandals (plural!) to his most recent performance art piece which involved sitting silently in a room with a bag over his head.

"Any artist, regardless of his field, can experience distance between his true self and his public persona," writes Franco.

"But because film actors typically experience fame in greater measure, our personas can feel at the mercy of forces far beyond our control."

There's Photoshop gone wrong. And then there's Photoshop gone very, very right.

There may not be even a slim chance of it happening, but Britney Spears votes for James Franco to fill the Fifty Shades of Grey void left by Charlie Hunnam.

She may not be alone in that assessment, either.

  • James Franco Red Carpet Pic
  • Work Bitch Singer

Asked about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie and who should play Christian Grey in a recent interview with London’s KIIS FM, the "Work Bitch" singer said:

“I love James Franco! I think he’s really cool.”

So does the girl who Franco helped get back at her ex with a cute Facebook photo. That was awesome. So Britney likely can count on her support.

As for why Spears is such a big fan of his?
