James Franco  has been getting a lot of attention on Instagram lately, from his flirtations with underage girls  to his racy shirtless  selfies. While James's brother, Dave Franco, admitted that he was mystified by James's behavior on social media , James explained his actions when he dropped by The Late Show  on Thursday. "To me it's just a fun thing, it's something I don't put a ton of thought into, but it gets a lot of attention," James said when asked about his now infamous selfie. He also noted that he shared his infamous selfie because it was unattractive: "Like that Britney Spears  shaved head moment, where it's sort of like, 'All right, you want me? Here you can have me, but I am going to be really ugly.' You know what I mean?" He added, "I didn't ask you to look at it, it's what the people want!"
