James Franco Says He Invented The Oscar Selfie, NOT Ellen! (VIDEO)



Did comedienne Ellen DeGeneres steal the Oscar selfie? According to former Academy Awards show host James Franco, she sure did!

Franco recently spoke with The Today Show’s Savannah Guthrie, alongside his Of Mice and Men Broadway co-stars. During the chat he joked about being the one to first do a selfie at the Oscars. Franco stated:
I took some videos and selfies at my Oscars and I got criticized for it. Now she's getting a lot of attention for hers. I don't get it.

Maybe because Ellen was funny doing it, and you weren't James? Watch the interview below!
