James Franco and the 17-year-old: Dishy dish or creepy PR stunt?

Wait, James Franco did what? With whom? Really? It's a story that sounds almost too perfectly dishy to be real.

Gossips were abuzz Thursday after screen shots surfaced showing a Tuesday text conversation that allegedly occurred between the actor, 35, and one Lucy Corde, 17, in which Franco seems to be trying to talk the Scottish schoolgirl into a hookup at a hotel.

The alleged exchange all started with Corde, who was visiting New York with her mom as an early 18th birthday present, meeting Franco on Tuesday amid a crowd outside his "Of Mice and Men" theater.
