James Franco Explains Provocative Selfies: 'It's What the People Want!'

James Franco says no one should look for hidden meaning in his provocative selfies because he doesn't put much thought into them.

"To me, it's just a fun thing. It's something I don't put a ton of thought into," the 36-year-old told David Letterman. "But it gets a lot of attention."

"Like that Britney Spears (photosBritney Spears photos) 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,'" he said. "You know what I mean?"

Letterman then wondered about the star's provocative bathroom photo in which he covers his nether region with his hand.

"First of all, let me just say there is not a person in this room who hasn't had their hand in their own pants," Letterman said. "I don't care what you do in your underpants, I just ..."

"It's not like I'm, like, putting that on billboards," Franco interjected. "Ostensibly, Instagram is for my fans. But, you know, now all the bloggers are following me on there, so they'll just take and use my images for whatever they want."

"I didn't ask you to look at it," he said when Letterman jokingly recoiled at the photo. "It's what the people want. If you don't want to see it, don't follow me!"
