9 Photos That Prove James Franco Needs An Instagram Intervention

Look, James. We gotta talk. Maybe it's just time to spend a little quality time *away* from your iPhone...

For the most part, James Franco's Instagram account has been an entertaining follow. It's filled with the normal amount of selfies that a famous person takes,

Memes and Microsoft Paint-esque scribbles,

Just over one year ago, this list was everything you would have missed if you weren't following the account.

Though he's never been shy about showing some skin, lately it's been different.

Thursday he uploaded the following to Instagram at 11:28 p.m., which has since been removed:

How did we get here????

Who knows.

Here are eight other Instagram photos from Franco's account that show cause for intervention.

They begin around the start of his rehearsals for Broadway's Of Mice And Men and take us up to the present day.

Original captions included.

1. Franco's title: "BROADWAY DREAMS - WHAT A NIGHT!!! FEELS SO GOOD"

2. Franco's title: "Mornin' coffee - OF MICE AND MEN - great crowd last night - GREAT SHOW! - COME ON DOWN!"

3. Franco's title: "BED SELFIE WITH KEEGAN ALLEN!!!!! TIME TO GO NUTS!!!!"

4. Franco's title: "Mmmm, oscars -"

5. Franco's title: "BREAKFAST IN BED MISSED YOU"

7. Franco's title: "WTF HAPPENED? I was waiting for you!!!!!"

6. Franco's title: "APPLE SLICES IN MY BED - I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DIDNT SHOW UP!"

8. Franco's title: "OLD SKOOL BED SELFIE."

9. And once more (for good measure), Franco's title: "JUMP ROPE"

Jump rope with... your penis? Is that what it means?

If General Hospital has taught us ANYTHING, it's that Franco is an evil genius with a grandiose master plan!!!

WE MAY NEVER KNOW.

Or maybe we will! He's definitely made some mistakes on the service (OK, a bunch) but his method is working: He has garnered 1.8 million Instagram followers since he joined. Maybe it's vanity and maybe it's not โ€” only James Franco can know James Franco's true inner method to Instagram. (However James, if you're reading this: We're listening.)
