Leave it to James Franco, to try his hand as a paparazzo – well, in a way. The 35-year-old multihyphenate is no stranger to the rumor mill, but this time, he’s seemingly taken matters into his own hands by taunting the gossip rags. Over the past day, Franco has taken to Instagram, posting a series of staged “paparazzi shots” of himself in compromising positions with a mystery blond. He even went so far as imitating gossipmonger, Perez Hilton’s characteristic scrawl by writing, “Franco Tryst! Who’s the girrrrl??” on said photo, signing it “Perez Hilton”.

Likewise, Franco took aim at another gossip site, Just Jared, with two photos featuring himself and the aforesaid unidentified blonde. This time, he ups the scandal meter with presumed fellatio. Again imitating Hilton’s scrawl, Franco wrote “Look closely Mr. Road Head", signing it “Just Jared”.

On Wednesday, presumably emboldened by the concept that thrice is a charm (and addressing the gay rumors that have surrounded him) Franco posted a collage of photos of himself with an unidentified male, one of which shows the pair kissing. He finished the little art project off by writing “Just a Franco afternoon”, and signed it “Gawker”, yet another prominent gossip site for those unfamiliar.
