Stephen Colbert (59 years old) asked a big question to James Franco (39 years old) on The Late Show on January 9. Franco won big Golden Globe and after the sexual harassment claim this was his first meeting, the host asked him about the whole drama. Especially how he got called out for wearing the Time’s Up button at the event and if he knew the reasons behind it. Franco refuses claims on sexual harassment and said that:
“I wore it because I do support it. Being in that room that night was powerful. I support change. I support change, I support 50/50 in 2020…I completely believe it it. that’s why I wore it.”
Ally Sheedy (55 years old) the 80s Brat Pack star is known as for the best movies like ‘The Breakfast club’. She was not happy with the fact that James Franco won the Best Actor in Comedy and Musical award at Golden Globe 2018. When he was giving speech for playing Tommy Wiseau in ‘The Disaster Artist’. She was watching and tweeting some serious shade.
Then he talked about how the actress Ally Sheedy shaded him on Twitter, she wrote:
“James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/TV business,” following his award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for The Disaster Artist. She then used the #metoo hashtag about him, writing, “Ok wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo.”
Ally Tweeted that:
“Why is a man hosting? Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much. Nite love ya”
Franco said that:
“There were some things on Twitter I haven’t read them, I’ve head about them. First of all I have no idea what I did to Ally Sheedy. I directed her in a play off-Broadway and I had nothing but a great time with her. I have total respect for her. I have no idea why she was upset, she took the tweet down. I can’t speak for her. I don’t know.”
Some Twitter user claimed after the Ally’s Tweets on sexual harassment behavior against him. Franco said that:
“The others…in my life I pride myself on taking responsibility for the things that I’ve done. I have to do that to maintain my well-being. I do it whenever I know there’s something wrong. The things I heard on Twitter are not accurate, but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they haven’t had a voice for so long. I don’t want to shut them down in any way. It’s a good thing and I support it.”
Stephen was not satisfied and asked him to talk outside from the social media, because people have different views on a single situation.
Franco hesitated before he revealed that:
“Like I said, the way I live my life, I can’t live it if there’s restitution to me made, I will make it. If I’ve done something wrong I’ll fix it, I have to. I think that’s how it works. I don’t know what else to do. Look, I really don’t have the answers and the whole point of this thing is that we listen. Incredible people were talking that night (at the Globes). I’m here to listen and learn and change my perspective where it’s off. I’m completely willing and I want to.”
