James Franco Went All Mapplethorpe In Latest Revealing Selfie, Then Immediately Deleted It

xjames-franco-shirtless-on-instagram.jpg.pagespeed.ic.2p2Y1EwJp-How does that old expression go — another day, another revealing James Franco selfie that was deleted immediately after it was posted? Something like that, right? Anyway, it’s happened again. Everyone’s favorite actor writer university student provocateur has gone and posed semi-nude again (not that we’re complaining, mind you). Earlier today the Broadway thespian snapped a photo of himself shirtless and unzipped to the brink of modesty in front of a self-portrait of the late, great —and super controversial —queer artist Robert Mapplethorpe, captioned “SelfieMadness The Adderall Diaries.” Franco deleted it moments later and replaced it with a cropped photo of his head captioned “Too many selfies. Even for me.”

For the past couple of years, the multi-hyphenated one has been attached to star in a film bio about the late photographer, which would be the latest in his series of cinematic portraits of LGBT icons such as Sal Mineo, James Dean and Hart Crane. Keep up the great work, Jimbo.

      @hotboyvb81: I agree – this guy wore out his welcome long ago. He tries so hard to get any attention he can get and it’s really worn thin. So tired of him.

      @MrKev: Speak for yourself. That belly is EXACTLY the way I like it. I didn’t like James Franco before because I felt he was too manicured. He’s redefining himself in a way that I like.

      @Ridpathos: Ahh, I knew the dumb Franco stans would jump in to defend him eventually. So tired of gays who worship straight men and get the vapors when a straight man takes his shirt off, no matter how average looking he might be.

      His behavior is beyond strange now. Absolutely nothing sexy about him in my opinion.

      Franco is a definite 8.
      Since I am only a 6, I find him hot as hell.

      I wish he’d just show us his dick and then we can all be disappointed that he is a normal person with an average dick and not some super-hung icon to fantasize about. I applaud him for his support of the community though but to keep teasing us with those nude selfies is getting tired.

      @gwydion: It can be seen in the “playing naked basketball” film he made (though I don’t know where you can find it now) and it is a very pretty uncut average sized piece. If anyone has a link, please share.

      Even if he’s holding his stomach in, he still has the V-line by his waistline. Which you cannot fake. I find him still very f@ckable.

      ‘course, if Franco is a 6.5 in WeHo, then I would be a 4.5
      guess I better stay in Chi if I want to keep f***ing my hot guys

      It’d be totally unremarkable if he wasn’t famous. But, like, in all honesty, I wouldn’t kick him out of bed.

      Here we go. He DOES have the Mapplethorpe vibe. But that photo of Robert is sacred and I hate that he is kinda dissing it right now. He COULD play Robert. He is dirty enough. But it better be the NY version of Robert’s life not the Cali version otherwise we could have McCauley Culkin play Robert. Nobody here knows who Robert is/was. That is interesting. Robert was my friend. His memory is sacred to me. I don’t want anyone to fu*k with it just to make money. Make a film that loses money and make it real and make it great. I love Robert. I cry for him even now. I think franco could do it.

      I really have no desire to entertain Franco and his sexual orientation. Life is way too short for such trivial matters. But there is an interesting article about the psychology behind selfies: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/positively-media/201304/selfies-narcissism-or-self-exploration

      Can someone post an article or study on the absurd commentary of this community. Many of you are so inhumanly judgemental. You all have some soul searching to do.

      @Danny: Dude you need to chill. I find your post to be absurd. Do you realize that Queerty is an on-line
      news/gossip/entertainment source? And on each post/story, they encourage readers to post a comment. Good-bad-or indifferent. And would you feel the same way if everyone had nothing but wounderful, glowing things to say about James? Well that’s never going to happen. People have different tastes,different likes, as to what they find attractive, to annoying. No one here is asking James to jump off a bridge, take a 100 sleepng pills, or shoot himself in the head. When that happens, then I agree that some soul searching needs to be done.

      @DarkZephyr: Marshall Mathers AKA “Eminem” (Ugh…) made a rap song about a psychotically obsessed fan named “Stan”. So, now, anybody who ‘likes’ someone (or presumably something) that someone else believes is crap, is called “Stan” (“Stans” and or “A Stan”).

      Here’s #7 in the list of definitions of “Stan” from the “Urban Dictionary”

      7. Stan
      A crazed and or obsessed fan. The term comes from the song Stan by eminem. The term Stan is used to describe a fan who goes to great lengths to obsess over a celebrity.
      Person 1: Dude these kids have been waiting outside the concert since 8 A:M even though no one was lined up…

      Person 2: What a bunch of Stans
