Golden Globe victor James Franco said accusations of sexual misconduct made against him on Twitter this week were "not accurate" but said in a television interview that 'if I've done something wrong, I will fix it.' - Reuters picLONDON, Jan 14 - Ashley Judd has addressed to the sexual harassment allegations surrounding James Franco - and her reaction might surprise you. "I mean, we've all operated with a certain amount of tone deafness, and I like the culpability, and we have to have restorative justice".

During his time at the event, Franco was seen wearing a #timesup button. I do it whenever something needs to be changed. "And it takes that kind of individual accountability to collectively make the change on a large scale".

After Franco was spotted at Sunday's Golden Globes ― for the campaign aimed at combating sexual misconduct following the #MeToo movement ― women called him out over social media for apparent hypocrisy.

During the interview with the host, James said the charges the women made were "inaccurate", but despite that fact, he supports women's right to come out with their stories because they "didn't have a voice for so long".

Franco has been accused of sexual misconduct by 5 women including ex-girlfriend Violet Paley and former students from his now defunct acting school.


Between the Globes and the Times report, Franco appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where he was asked about the allegations. I don't want to shut them down in any way. "I have my own side of this story, but I believe in these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say just because I believe in that much", he said.

He continued, "I can't live if there's restitution to be made".

If I have done something wrong, I will fix it - I have to. I have to. I don't know what else to do. Actress Sarah Tither-Kaplan suggested Franco's practice of encouraging women to perform fully nude was "exploitative", and Ally Sheedy also appeared to suggest he had something to do with why she "left the film/tv business".
