37 Times James Franco Won At Instagram (And Life)

The 'gram game is strong with this one.

Today (April 19) is James Franco's birthday -- and while the actor may be turning a hefty 37, he's pretty much proven that when it comes to social media, he's young at heart. In particular, Mr. Dave Skylark himself is a pro when it comes to Instagram, so in honor of the day of his birth, here's 37 times his 'gram game proved this "Freak" was on fleek (that's a thing the youths say, right? Cool).

  1. Saved By The what now?

    No idea what this is for but it's amazing.

  2. Hanging with Miley.

    Normal. This happens to me all the time.

  3. Where to begin?

    "LittleJamesFranco says, 'happy 50 Shades of Easter.'" What. What is happening.

  4. Hanging with Elton.
  5. Teasing the press.

    "Selena and I had a baby. It was born during Sprang Break."

  6. Celebrating birthdays right.
  7. His Disney nerdery is legit.
  8. Seriously. Disney nerd.

    "When you buy fake Buddy Holly glasses with clear lenses

    So you can just chill in the enchanted tiki room and relax with an oversized pickle

    And you get spotted."

  9. Getting a perfect promposal.
  10. Comparing himself to Yoko.
  11. Selfie-ception.

    Taking a selfie while wearing a shirt of yourself taking a selfie is the ultimate selfie.

  13. Making a classy holiday card.
  14. Also thinking Spider-Man is kind of sexy as a balloon.

  16. Hanging with a kitten.

    That's Instagram 101.

  17. Partying like a normal person.
