Allegedly, regarding the latter of course. If you thought that Jeopardy exchange was awkward, how’s this for awkward timing.

On the heels of reports of James Franco allegedly trying to pick up a 17-year-old girl comes a new movie trailer where he’s doing the exact same thing. Another case of art imitating life, or life imitating art. I always get the two confused ;) See the leaked screenshots of Franco’s conversation with the girl over at the Huffington Post. In Franco’s defense, he tweeted that he wasn’t looking for sex.

“I’M NOT! I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you,” he wrote via Twitter.

Palo Alto finds Franco as a high school soccer coach who hooks up with a teenage player played by Emma Roberts. The film is based on Franco’s book of short stories titled Palo Alto: Stories where he explores the titular neighborhood through its teenage residents. Some of which were based on Franco’s own childhood memories. Director Gia Coppola (granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola) makes her directorial debut. Coppola and Roberts aren’t the only offspring from Hollywood royalty. Val Kilmer and Joanne Whaley’s son, Jack Kilmer, makes his acting debut in the film. Check out the trailer below.

The Gap unveiled it’s 2012 Holiday Global Ad Campaign a few days ago, but just in case you haven’t seen it, here you go. I can’t even recall the last time I stepped into a Gap store. Probably, when the company had the best commercials around? Remember their “Khaki Swing” and “Mellow Yellow” ads. While not on the same level as their ads in their hey day, the recently debuted one is pretty dang adorable. “Love Comes In Every Shade” highlights various kinds of love from familial to love for pets, and everything in between.

“This campaign features some well-known actors, musicians and their loved ones, all wearing clothes from our new holiday collection,” said Seth Farbman, Gap’s Global Chief Marketing Officer. “Their personal relationships help remind us that every family is unique and often goes beyond just those we’re related to—it also includes the people we share our lives and deepest passions with. This campaign celebrates these diverse, optimistic views on family and the many forms love can take.”

Some of the celebrities enlisted include the cast of NBC’s new sitcom The New Normal displaying ‘Modern Love‘. A few of my other favorites include Rufus Wainwright posing with his husband for ‘Newlywed Love‘, Jack Huston with his dog Orso representing ‘Puppy Love‘ and rapper Nas with his dad showing ‘Fatherly Love‘. Check out all of The Gap’s shades of love below.
