James Franco Pokes Fun at Gossip Sites, Says His Brother Dave Franco is Dating Zac Efron
That James Franco, what a jokester! The Palo Alto actor recently shared a fake article declaring his brother Dave Franco and actor Zac Efron a new couple, and congratulated the Neighbors co-stars on their "relationship."
James, who is very active on social media, posted this photo on his Instagram account with the caption: "Effron and My brother, dating!!!!!! Congrats, boys! I'm so happy for you!!!"
Apparently, the doctored pic came from an actual story that Hollywood Life posted back in April, only that article claimed Zac was dating his female co-star, Halston Sage.
Turns out, the fancy editing was done by a Franco family fan. Instagram user Dave Francock ("a 17-year-old girl familiarized with photo shop"), was over the moon when the Child of God director shared her pic.The enthusiastic teen reposted it, writing: "OMH I DID NOT DESERVE THIS MOMENT. HE MADE MY WHOLE SUMMER. Thank you James, I love you.@jamesfrancotv I thought I'd never be noticed. I hope I meet you one day"
Making dreams come true on the Internet. Isn't that what it's all about? Oh, and having a laugh at the absurdity of celebrity gossip. Guilty!
P.S. James: there is only one "f" in Efron.
