    Default James Franco Denies Sexual Harassment Allegations

    James Franco has addressed sexual harassment allegations leveled at him recently on Twitter.

    During his appearance on Tuesday’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Franco was asked to speak about the accusations after he received criticism for wearing a Time’s Up pin in support of sexual harassment and assault awareness at the Golden Globe Awards, during which he won best movie actor for The Disaster Artist.

    “I haven’t read them. I’ve heard about them,” the actor, 39, said.

    During Sunday’s telecast, several women, including The Breakfast Club actress Ally Sheedy, called out Franco with the #MeToo hashtag. In now-deleted tweets, Sheedy wrote: “Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much.” and “James Franco just won. Please never ever ask me why I left the film/tv business.”

    Franco named Sheedy during his interview with late-night host Stephen Colbert saying, “Okay, first of all, I have no idea what I did to Ally Sheedy, I directed her in a play Off-Broadway. I had nothing but a great time with her, total respect for her. I have no idea why she was upset.

    “She took the tweet down. I don’t know. I can’t speak for her, I don’t know,” said Franco, who worked with Sheedy in 2014 on his Off-Broadway directorial debut, The Long Shrift.

    “The others… look, in my life, I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I’ve done. I have to do that to maintain my well-being. I do it whenever I know that there is something wrong or needs to be changed, I make it a point to do it,” the Oscar-nominated star said.

    I'm surprised more haven't come out about him. I used to think he was so hot, and now I want to know what the fuck I was thinking. He skeeves me out big time.

    I remember when an underage Instagram user posted DM's between the two. He wanted her to meet him at a hotel. Regardless of these recent accusations, he deserves to be called out.

    There have been loads of blinds about him, including recent blinds from his detour into education. But it's not good if Ally posted and then deleted. She's just putting it out there without evidence and the Hollywood rumour mill will keep spinning.

    I just heard on the news that the NY Times cancelled an event with him to promote his movie. Let the fallout begin.

    I used to like him (mostly based on his looks of course) but then he got skeevy looking and started with all this "I'm an avant garde artiste" bullshit. I was actually surprised he won the GG, not that I've seen the movie or anything, but it seems pretty out there. I doubt he'll be this year's Casey Affleck. And speaking of Casey, I have to doubt he would have won that Oscar in today's atmosphere. What a difference a year makes.

    IIRC, she was 17- so legally in NY not unable to give consent.

    I liked 11.22.63, but only because I almost forgot it was him. Other than that, I didn't really like many of his performances. For some unearthly reason, he played Tristan in Tristan + Isolde and that was godawful. I didn't even like him in that movie with Robert DeNiro about being by the sea (my brain's not functioning today so whatever). He's definitely gives off a shady vibe. I was kind of hoping that's all it was, but it's Hollywood, why would anyone just seem shady?

    He’s one I’ve just never understood the appeal. Always seemed skeevy and pretentious.

    Am I the only one wondering if Casey Affleck will actually present the Oscar for Best Actress this year? He must be nervous about his reception. Or maybe not. The sense of entitlement runs deep in that pack.

    Ive never liked James Franco, I tried to watch him in that new TV show set in the 1970s - I just find him sleazy.

    He and Seth Rogen are fucking hilarious together, and I refuse not to enjoy their comedic stylings

    Hey, I loved Pineapple Express and This is the End because they are funny together. He's still an asshole for disappointing me for being a skeevey pervert.

    That is messed up that tradition dictates that Affleck will give out that Oscar. Sheesh.

    I love "This is the End", and the irony is that he is playing himself. I just checked out Franco's IMDB entry, and he is, hands-down, the busiest actor in Holllywood. He doesn't turn anything down. Makes about 10 things a year - from shorts to TV show appearances, to movies.

    DailyMail had some really disturbing stories about him today in terms of how he ran his acting classes and directed his short films. It's the kind of boundary issues that you would associate with Uncle Terry, just not that extreme. Apparently, he has been calling some of the people who Tweeted about him to personally apologize (which they mentioned). Very weird.

    This prick just won Best Actor tonight at the Critics Choice Awards-which I think is like the Walmart of awards shows. Of course the coward didn’t show. He better call Spacey & Fat Fuck Weinstein to see if he can bunk with them at Rapist Rehab.

    When he was onstage at the Golden Globes I told my daughter I was surprised no one had accused him of anything. He just gives off that vibe, and then bam! the next day... I wasn't shocked at all.

    I find that him using his status as an educator particularly creepy.
