James Franco shared a revealing picture of himself on Instagram on Thursday, but deleted it just hours later after he was mocked by critics.
The actor is a prolific user of the photosharing app and regularly posts self-taken images of himself in which he is shown topless or in bed.
On Thursday he shared an image of himself sweating and nude apart from a pair of underpants, which he was shown suggestively pulling down on the verge of completely exposing himself. To see the unedited photo, click here.
