Franco posts bedroom shots

Barely a week after he came under fire for wooing a 17-year-old girl via social media, *James Franco *has caused a stir on Instagram yet again.

The actor, above, posted a string of selfies at the weekend where he appears bleary-eyed and shirtless in bed. One of the images was captioned: "Good morning - are you out there, baby?" while another read: "Breakfast in bed. Missed you."

The snaps generated such a buzz among Franco's legion of followers that the photo-sharing site crashed at one point, with each photo attracting more than 100,000 likes.

The star came under fire earlier this month for a racy exchange where he attempted to pick up 17-year-old Scottish student *Lucy Clode *over Instagram after meeting at a signing for his Broadway play. Franco sent the teen a string of messages asking to meet, and also sent several selfies to confirm it was him.

He apologised for the lapse in judgment, though some watchers speculated it was a publicity stunt to promote his upcoming film, Palto Alto, in which he plays a teacher who seduces a much younger student.
