It’s now April 3rd, and James Franco is just now enjoying his April Fools‘ Day hoax where he’s suckered people into thinking he tried to hook up with a 17-year-old girl on the internet. Watch this trailer for the new movie Palo Alto. It’s based on his short stories, and he plays a coach who gets involved with a teenager. It’s not like this news was hidden away, either–but some hysterical women have still gotten all worked up over this thing.
“But,” you say, “what if James Franco is so brilliant that he wants to hit up teen girls on the internet, and he waited until the day that the Palo Alto trailer was released so that we’d all think it was just a hoax?” And we have to admit that you kind of got us there. Also, Scottish accents are sexy, so there’s motivation–but why risk your sterling reputation for a Scottish blonde? Defeats the whole purpose. We just don’t know what to believe anymore.
