James Franco Posts Nude Selfie, Quickly Deletes It

BmmjFv7IcAAP_9aWe already know that James Franco never sleeps (except in the middle of a tedious university course), but now he’s trying to keep everyone up at night by posting incredibly revealing photos on Instagram. The actor, currently starring in the Broadway revival of Of Mice and Men, not to mention a gazillion other artsy projects, was apparently feeling randy and exhibition-y late tonight so he let everyone know he’s not a fan of waxing (hooray!) and snapped a selfie with his white beige boxer-briefs strategically lowered to the base of … his pubic region, with his right hand discreetly covering his unmentionables. Fortunately for everyone, the folks at Jezebel were on late night Franco patrol and made a screen grab of the Playgirl-friendly pic. The photo was quickly removed from the actor’s Instagram account and it’s unknown whether Franco had second thoughts about revealing so much or if Instagram deleted it. Whatever the reason, God bless Franco and Jezebel.

    Should have just left it up, he should have known everything he posts is instantly seen and copied.

    I wonder why he looks so sweaty and/or greasy? Not that I wouldn’t still fuck him.

    Selfie Rule #1: Look at the camera (in the mirror).


    Some people look better fully clothed

  • Maximilian

    Okay I love him for doing all this but he can look so much better.

  • OrchidIslander

    I would have no problem hitting that. None whatsoever.

    Let’s see, late at night, looking a bit rough, sweaty, and doing some things a bit daring/foolish. Sounds like somebody was on something.

  • ap1981

    He posted it to Facebook as well. The caption was something about jump rope / post workout.

  • Billy Budd

    I love him, but I prefer when he shaves his beard.

  • Snapper59

    Yeah, he’s on Broadway and was snubbed for a Tony which is shocking because I thought those types just love “randy and exhibition-y”. Not.

  • Snapper59

    Tony nomination, that is.

  • barkomatic

    He’s a hot man, but I wouldn’t classify this as a “nude” pic since he has a hand over his junk. This is pretty tame by today’s standards. At this point, James Franco could post a full frontal and it wouldn’t hurt his image one bit.

  • toberlin

    barcomatic:smirk…this man really needs some “Instagram for Dummies”support

  • Aromaeus

    Please love yourself. He looks washed the eff up.

  • toberlin

    I really like how he looks including his “hot pants”.Just have to smirk about the Instagramproblems he always seem to have…

  • mz.sam

    Great actor but WAAY over-exposed for trying too hard(?)…NEXT!

  • vive

    Good to know even a guy as hot as Franco can look like warmed-over crap in a selfie. Makes us all feel a bit better about ourselves.

  • thejf

    I long for the days we just said “photo” or “picture” and not ‘selfie’.

    James isn’t attractive anymore (inside and out). About 7 years ago this would have been exciting.

  • DK

    Franco is a the biggest troll ever.

  • lkeels

    Someone needs to learn the definition of “nude”….there is NOTHING nude about this photo.

  • Daveliam


    Exactly. The Queerty writing staff continues to use the word “nude” to generate page hits. Lame.

  • pattygale

    Hate to say it cause I know he’s greatly admired and lusted after, but he’s looking a little haggard and unsexy. As always, just keepin’ it real, at least from my point of view.

  • misterhollywood

    His brother Dave likely takes a nice selfie. Google his bro and you will be amazed:)

  • Tackle

    Judging by that picture there, if he were not a famous actor, with a past legacy of being a heartthrob, I don’t think too many people would pay attention to him.

  • Stache99

    @thejf: Well, allot us think the opposite. He’s hot.

  • JD13

    This is the dumbest headline ever. You can’t say someone is “nude” when they are still wearing clothes.

  • WuzUpYall

    James Franco is gross.

  • Captain Obvious


    Is James Franco a carb?

  • rcktetr

    I actually thought It was hott.

  • rcktetr

    He looks sexi
