Today in James Franco news: The actor posted a suggestive selfie on his Instagram… and then quickly deleted it.

Franco’s no stranger to selfies — if you follow him on Twitter or Instagram, you know that he posts a variation of him lounging around in bed shirtless basically every day. But this one had the added element of his boxer briefs pulled down slightly so he could rest his hand on his, uh, Green Goblin.

Why did he decide to take the photo down? We may never know. What we do know is that maybe Franco should take a cue from good ol’ Shia and step back from the whole fame thing, if only for a little while.

Thanks to Jezebel, which discovered that one tweeter took a screenshot of Franco’s image before it was taken down, we can see what Franco apparently didn’t want us to:

Now would probably be a good time for someone to take away Franco’s phone. Please?
