He’s all about posting raunchy selfies, and James Franco explained his social media antics on “Late Show with David Letterman” last night (May 8).

While promoting his upcoming film “Palo Alto,” the “Pineapple Express” hunk told the retiring host that he finds inspiration for his questionable snaps from pop sensation Britney Spears.

"Like that Britney Spears shaved head moment, where it's sort of like, 'All right, you want me? Here you can have me, but I am going to be really ugly.' You know what I mean?" Franco told Letterman.

James was specifically referring to the nearly nude photo he posted to Instagram last week, which was later removed by the social media site. Check out his full interview below!
