James Franco was a guest on Live! with Kelly and Michael Friday where he apologized for trying to pick up a teenager. Last week a 17-year-old Scottish girl named Lucy posted her flirty Instagram exchanges with the actor on the Internet, in which Franco at one point suggested they get a hotel room. "I'm embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky,” he explained. “It's the way that people meet each other today, but what I've learned -- I guess because I'm new to it -- is you don't know who's on the other end. You get a feel for them, you don't know who you're talking to. I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson.” Trying to lighten the mood, Kelly Ripa then joked, “I promise I won’t reveal our text messages.”
