James Franco denied any inappropriate actions after multiple actresses accused him of sexual misconduct.
Franco appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” last night after his Golden Globes win for “The Disaster Artist” and claimed he didn’t know what any of the alleged victims, including “Breakfast Club” star Ally Sheedy, were talking about. She said Franco shouldn’t have been invited to the Globes.
Franco said, “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 and I have total respect for her."
He also said the other allegations against him were “not accurate,” but said he supported people “coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long.”
“In my life, I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I’ve done. I have to do that to maintain my wellbeing. I do it whenever I know that there is something wrong and needs to be changed.
“I can’t live if there’s restitution to be made. I will make it. If I’ve done something wrong, I will fix it. I have to. I think that’s how that works.”
Regarding the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up, a new initiative launched by more than 300 actress that aims to fight sexual harassment and assault in the workplace, Franco said the point is to listen.
“I’m here to listen and learn and change my perspective where it’s off,” he said. “I’m competely willing to.”
