Did James Franco try to seduce a 17-year-old?
Palo Alto, the movie in which James Franco ironically plays an older man going for an underage girl, premiered tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.

James and Emma Roberts–whose characters are involved in the film–looked extra cozy during the premiere, often posing with each other for several snaps.

But don’t get the wrong impression… The two are just good friends.

In fact, during a flurry of very excited Instagram photos he snapped in anticipation of the premiere, James managed to sneak in a selfie with the young actress.

In case you couldn’t tell Franco was stoked for the premiere of the film in which he not only starred but helped write alongside director Gia Coppola.

Franco rocked a blue-gray suit with some aviator shades,while Roberts went for a demure look in a modern black dress with red lips.
