James Franco explains his nude selfie to David Letterman

Posted on

And now for another installment of Being James Franco.

While on Letterman Thursday night, Dave naturally asked him about all the weird stuff — like nude Seth Rogen paintings — Franco’s been posting Instagram. After pulling up Franco’s own infamous nude-ish selfie, Letterman spoke for us all, asking, “Honest to God, why?”

Franco had an interesting response: “Instagram isn’t something I put a lot of thought into,” he began. (Duh.) He then explained he’s doing it all for his fans: “I didn’t ask you to look at it! It’s what the people want! If you don’t want to see it, don’t follow me.”

If only it were that simple.
