3. and a little shameless self-promotion.
Just over one year ago, this list was everything you would have missed if you weren’t following the account.
4. Though he’s never been shy about showing some skin, lately it’s been different.
6. How did we get here????
7. 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.
8. Original captions included.
9. 1. Franco’s title: “BROADWAY DREAMS - WHAT A NIGHT!!! FEELS SO GOOD”
At first it seemed fairly innocent. James Franco had a Broadway dream. He was tired. Too tired to put a shirt on before taking a selfie and uploading it to Instagram.
10. 2. Franco’s title: “Mornin’ coffee - OF MICE AND MEN - great crowd last night - GREAT SHOW! - COME ON DOWN!”
Oh, good! I’m glad it was a great show! Must have been so great that he forgot to put on a shirt before taking a selfie and then uploading it to Instagram.
11. 3. Franco’s title: “BED SELFIE WITH KEEGAN ALLEN!!!!! TIME TO GO NUTS!!!!”
Oh, hey! The guy from Pretty Little Liars, also recently in a Broadway show. I bet they were both so busy exchanging acting tips about how to truly use the stage to your advantage in an old theater that they forgot to put on their shirts before taking a selfie and uploading it to Instagram.
12. 4. Franco’s title: “Mmmm, oscars -“
Is there a shirt under that plate? It’s probably safe to assume not.
13. 5. Franco’s title: “BREAKFAST IN BED MISSED YOU”
14. 7. Franco’s title: “WTF HAPPENED? I was waiting for you!!!!!”
Waiting for WHO??????
15. 6. Franco’s title: “APPLE SLICES IN MY BED - I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU DIDNT SHOW UP!”
WHO didn’t show up???????? No, really: I’m dying over here. Who. Was. It.
16. 8. Franco’s title: “OLD SKOOL BED SELFIE.”
Er, OK??? Are you even of legal age in this photo, JAMES FRANCO???
20. 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 — only James Franco can know James Franco’s true inner method to Instagram. (However James, if you’re reading this: We’re listening.)
