The actor/academic/writer/whatever else posted this image:
Fans around the world let out a collective cry of joy, and within minutes, hundreds of Franco selfies were uploaded.
Some felt very emotional about it all.
Others knew what it was really about.
But true to his word, Franco followed back his fans.
138 new people within an hour, to be exact.
The moral of the story is that you should always buy celebrities' books, and never leave their social media accounts.
If you missed out on a Franco follow, you can always buy some panties with his face on them (that his sister apparently wears.)
