James Franco Claims He Did Ellen's Oscars Selfie First
The "king of selfies" hosted the Oscars in 2011...
James Franco has joked that he invented the “Oscars selfie.”
Earlier this month Oscars host Ellen Degeneres crashed Twitter when she posted a picture of herself alongside attendees at the star-studded ceremony.
Actor Bradley Cooper took the shot, which also included Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Lupita Nyong’o and Jennifer Lawrence.
But Franco, who hosted the Oscars alongside Anne Hathaway in 2011, says he was posting Oscar selfies long before Ellen.
“I guess maybe I didn’t include Meryl Streep and Bradley Cooper in my Oscars selfie, which is where I went wrong.”
Today James had another message about selfies he wanted to share on his Instagram account. Posting a picture of a newspaper warning about selfies increasing the spread of lice, he wrote: “Hahahaha - be careful when taking selfies! Always check your partner's head before you SELFIE.…”
