Appearing on Stephen Colbert following his Golden Globes win, James Franco was asked to address recent allegations of sexual misconduct being made about him on Twitter and the criticism he has faced over wearing the ‘Time’s Up’ pin.
The Disaster Artist actor has been criticised by multiple women on Twitter for wearing the pin, with accusations suggesting sexual misconduct and abuse of power.
“First of all, I want to say that I wore [the pin] because I do support it. Look, I was so excited to win but being in that room that night was incredible. I mean it was powerful and there were incredible voices and I support it. I support change.”
“I have no idea what I did to Ally Sheedy,” James stated when asked about the allegations.
“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 tweets down… I can’t speak for her. I don’t know.
In regards to the other women who have tweeted out, James said “In my life, I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I’ve done. I have to do that to maintain my wellbeing.
“The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate, but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice,” he added.
“If there’s restitution to be made, I will make it. I’m here to listen and learn and change my perspective where it’s off.”
