James Franco
apparently has not learned his lesson with Instagram.

Less than a month after apologizing for pursuing a teenage girl on the social media platform, the “Palo Alto” actor is at it again.

This time, he posted a nearly-nude shot of himself in his boxer briefs, with the front pulled down and covered only by his hand, according to Gossip Cop.

It’s quite possible that the artist did not mean to make the photo go public, considering that he quickly pulled it down from Instagram.

In early April, Franco came clean on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” after an alleged conversation between himself and a 17-year-old Scottish girl vacationing in New York hit the web.

“I’m embarrassed, and I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky,” he explained at the time. “You get a feel for them, you don’t know who you’re talking to,” he offered. “I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson.”

If you’re so inclined, head over to to see the risqué photo and sound off in the comments!
