Allegedly, 17-year-old Lucy Clode was in New York with her family for an early 18th birthday present earlier this week where she met James outside his Broadway show "Of Mice and Men."
Clode tagged Franco in their photo (upon his request) and the two engaged in private messages on the social networking site, with the 35-year-old asking if she wanted to meet up, and if he should get a hotel room for them.
The story has gone viral, though it's entirely possible the conversations have all been faked/Photoshopped.
The "The Is The End" star replied to the media criticism by posting an image of himself via Instagram which read, "WHY ARE YOU THIRSTY FOR UNDERAGE ONES," to which he tweeted a reply, "I'M NOT! I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you."
James has since deleted the image from his page, but the Twitter post is still live.
