There is a right way and there are several wrong ways to take an Instagram selfie with actor/poet/MFA-PhD./creeper James Franco outside of his Broadway production of Of Mice and Men, according to James Franco.

He went on The Tonight Show to explain that the problem is not famous and attractive multidisciplinary talent James Franco, who wears the same hat and sunglasses and delivers the same flat expression each and every time. The problem is master thespian James Franco's fans, who don't understand how to operate a phone.

Somehow, the best way to catch Franco's eye so he'll track you down on Instagram and booty-text you from his hotel room later that night didn't come up. That's weird. Not sure why he wouldn't want to talk about that.
