James Franco Denies Sexual Assault Allegations On Colbert



James Franco, who just won a Golden Globe for his performance as Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist, joined Stephen Colbert on the Late Show Tuesday night to discuss the film. Colbert also asked Franco about the criticism he received for wearing a Time’s Up pin during the Globes broadcast and the sexual misconduct allegations that have since resurfaced against him on Twitter. (His live event with the New York Times was also canceled earlier Tuesday.)

“Well, first I want to say I do support it,” Franco said of the Time’s Up initiative. “Look, I was so excited to win, but being in that room that night was incredible. I mean, it was powerful. There were incredible voices and I support it. I support change. I support 50/50 and 20/20, which just means people that are underrepresented—women and people of color, people in the LGBT community—get leadership positions, that they fill all positions that they’ve been deprived of. I completely believe in that. That’s why I wore it.”

  1. Impossible, this is too far. We must stop these attention thirsty thots. My man, James Franco, Harry Osbourne, David Skylark is definitely not the person people may think he is.

  2. Can’t let a man be enjoy his achievement … names are being thrown everywhere, now it just seems like people will go as far to ruin someone’s career just to get money. I don’t approve of sexual misconduct in any way but now “everyone” is being accused of doing something . Most of the allegations don’t have not one bit of proof .

  3. James Franco is being falsely accused. He is innocent and despite my support for the Times Up initiative, people are just saying names to ruin the lives of people and to get money and fame from it. This is going too far when you can accuse anyone when they have done nothing wrong, but still ruin them.

  4. If you didn’t report the “sexual harassment” immediately then as far as I’m concerned it didn’t happen. Who in their right mind reports a crime 5 days after it happened to them?

  5. Enough with this fucking witch hunt it was understandable at the start of this “sexual harassment” bullshit but now it’s like who the fuck is gonna be on the news today and who the hell knows if it’s true with all these people jumping on the fucking bandwagon at this point.

  6. Social Media is getting way out of hand.Why wait till he wins?why delete tweets?go to the police 👮🏾 and let them investigate???jeez its slaughter season in Hollyweird

  7. What happens when you're that rich?can't even flirt or put it in her butthole agressively without having a feminist try to bring you down, fuck that shit bro I'm tired of all these movements and all these "minority groups" they can suck it for real you know what's hard in 2018?being a white male,open them damn eyes

  8. My boy gets a golden globe and now woman wanna come out and say they got sexual assaulted why say something now and not then ? They are apart of the problem hard to feel sorry for someone who didn't say something then smh

  9. nah he prob did it but the accusations aren't bad. He pushed his girlfriend at the times head down when she was blowing him and some other girl got mad bc she did 2 scenes naked when he was directing like a shortfilm or something. Plus he flirted with 2 17 year olds. Is that really like worth a scandal?

  10. Ok I get the whole Kevin Spacey and Harvey Wienstein thing. Literally only 2 people in Hollywood were "alleged" doing some fucked up shit. All these other guys did basically nothing or did something mildly inappropriate yet they should have there careers and reputations ruined. People need to wake up and realize all this talk is pointless and the global media is just force feeding you this shit so you don't think about the real problems we are facing in the world.
