Franco‘s love life might not be at its peak right now, but apparently he’s still more than willing to help other people with their relationship troubles.

The Oscar winner, who was rumored to be dating his “Spring Breakers” co-star Ashley Benson for a while last year before she began dating her “Pretty Little Liars” co-star Tyler Blackburn, was nice enough to help 15-year-old Greta Pasqua (whose father owns the Beverly Hills residence where one of his photo shoots took place) get back at her ex-boyfriend by taking a very sweet photo with her.

So how exactly does a photo with an actor count as “getting back” at her ex? Well, apparently the heartbroken teen’s former boyfriend is a huge fan of James.

A source tells Us Weekly:

“[Greta] was really depressed because her boyfriend had just broken up with her… James caught wind of it and gave her a pep talk.”

The insider continues:

“He said, ‘Post it on Facebook and tell him to eat his heart out!’ Her ex is all of a sudden starting to think he made the wrong decision!”

Guess it worked!

Wasn’t that nice of James?
