Bettys, what did you do the last time you went through a breakup? Did you seek out your most favoritest celebrity EVER, having a hug-tastic photo shoot with them, and then post the pics to Facebook? Because apparently that’s an option now. Just sayin’
According to Us Weekly, that’s just what 15-year-old Greta Pasqua did when her boyfriend dumped her. Said a source to the magazine, “[Greta] was really depressed because her boyfriend had just broken up with her. James [Franco] caught wind of it and gave her a pep talk.” How exactly did Franco find out about it? That’s anyone’s guess, but I would imagine one or both of Greta’s parents work in the entertainment industry and somehow got the word out to him through shared connections. Or something.
In any event, James swung by the family’s Beverly Hills home on October 7 for the aforementioned pep talk—as well as what ended up being an impromptu photo shoot. Apparently Greta’s ex was a wee bit Franco-obsessed, so he posed for a huggy picture with the teen and said, “Post it on Facebook and tell him to eat his heart out!”
The weirdest part? It worked. Said Us Weekly’s source, “Her ex is all of a sudden starting to think he made the wrong decision.” Personally, I wouldn’t trust anyone who decides suddenly that breaking up with you was a bad idea based on a picture of James Franco… but then again, they’re 15. 15-year-olds aren’t often known for the strength of their logic.
Tell us: Would you get revenge on an ex by hugging James Franco?
