After appearing at the Golden Globes sporting a “Time’s Up” pin Sunday, James Franco has found himself in the middle of a series of #TimesUp sexual misconduct allegations. The embattled actor was forced to address some of the accusations on Tuesday, which he says are “not accurate,” and things got, well, really awkward. Now, more allegations are being leveled at Franco — and they might spell major trouble for the 39-year-old star.
On Sunday, two actresses took to Twitter to slam Franco for what they allege is his #TimesUp hypocrisy. “Hey James Franco, nice #timesup pin at the #GoldenGlobes,” wrote filmmaker and actress Sarah Tither-Kaplan, “remember a few weeks ago when you told me the full nudity you had me do in two of your movies for $100/day wasn’t exploitative because I signed a contract to do it? Times up on that!
“Cute #TIMESUP pin James Franco,” wrote actress Violet Paley. “Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17? After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?”
’80s star Ally Sheedy, who has worked with Franco in the past, added a cryptic tweet that she eventually deleted: “James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business.”
