    Does going for the first kiss count as sexual harassment. Sounds like it can be used against you even with consent.

    Bullshit James Franco even needs to try to get women.
    Watch out, you're guilty until proven innocent when a woman accuses you.

  • What the f*ck did you just say?

    it's not all one sided... some of these cunts want to hurt some of these guys and destroy their careers and also they are using the actual abuse from some of these women to try and shame men for consensual interactions in which they were "offended" or rejected

    False accusations should be punished to the highest degree! Give them double the punishment of the alleged crime and drag every false accuser to court for slander if they use twitter or other social media to accuse someone without any prove and without official charges!

    Couldnt help but notice at 2:25 after the question was asked , how immediately he changed the subject to shine light on something he did, or was apart of, that was 'so powerful' , ' .. But look im also great because of this' , and didn't even answer the question. Obviously he doesnt want to talk about this

  • Amanda Wing

    He's probably not really answering the questions because he's tired. He wore the pin to show support. It was called out as being hypothetical. News flash so wasn't Justin Timberlake and all he did was wear the pin and star in a Woody Allen movie. Are you fucking serious? This has become such a witch hunt. Attentions seekers are overshadowing the real victims and the real culprits. As a woman I am so exhausted by just hearing it all. Everyone seems to jump on bandwagons. I feel now Hollywood has jumped to the gun control wagon. Next month something else. These are fads. These topics are important and I feel too many people feed off the hype then lose interest fast and no resolutions are made

    So, what happened about these 'allegations'? There women seem to have disappeared faster than Scotch mist and have utterly destroyed James Franco. Were they just trying to get their names in the papers on the backs of real victims of sexual assault. Shame on them.

    Of course he did some alpha things to women, he's a hot dude and had the time of his life, and he was probably drunk or high so he made someone give him head forcefully. I'm sure that was humiliating and not okay but spur of the moment and so many other men have done it not thinking of its ramifications. It doesn't justify the witchhunting and censoring rhethoric of men.
    If he learned from it that's good, he's older now anyways. It just shouldn't mean the end of his career even if true.

    James Franco is no where near what Harvey Weinstein is accused of but no one should force anyone to perform a sex act on them if they don't want to. no should mean no. so i don't think he is a predator but i think he made some bad decisions.

    I feel really bad, I mean if this happened to me being accused of these kinds of things makes me sick. It’s so fucked up that girls do this to innocent people, sometimes they are right but most of the time they are just trying to spread rumours and ruin people’s life and career.

  • PurelyAfrican
    PurelyAfrican Month ago

    Title of this video is very misleading. He did not "address" the allegations it was a mealy mouthed deflection & denial and seth meyers looked like he was forced to ask him did he even give af? They blatantly went through the questions BEFORE interview- it was a white wash! Totally different from the dustin hoffman interview.
    Franco has had multiple allegations steeming back years and still hasn't addressed any of them! The times up movement is joke! We need to go back to #metoo so the men can't wriggle out of their abysmal behaviour!

  • Erik Booth

    Lesson to be learned is not to become a part of others political movements. Like wearing a pin in support of TimesUp. Kissing ass of MeToo, BLM and TimesUp movements can only lead to disaster if you are not actually a part of the group, meaning being female or black. The first slip up or revelation of past indiscretions will have the masses falling on you like wolves and like ruin your career.

  • Jay Vin99
    Jay Vin99 2 months ago +1

    Most times these movements start off as great and important things but quickly turn into rallies that label and reprimand people as predators or rapists without any proof. James did not rape/assault or sexually harass anyone, he literally only asked out a 17 year old girl and once she said no he made amends and did not in anyway push her into saying yes to his advances. Same goes for all the other cases against him. It's very unfair on his part because so far there has been no proof to show that he was displaying inappropriate sexual misconduct and the only thing this managed to do was alter so many people's opinion of him and possibly contribute to the deterioration of his career. Don't label anyone as something as serious as a sexual assaulter or predator without having concrete proof.

  • Jassy Rahal

    timesup# movement had it with harvey and matt lauer and all that big names.. But now accusing aniz ansari, james franco for a bad date is a cheap fame shot. These women didn't appeared on any show but only just tweeting. There is a big difference in sexually harassing someone while in business with them or over a period of time and having a bad experience with someone on a date.Drunk people often make mistakes of going over the top but if he still forced her after she rejected his advances then it's way wrong and she should have reported it to police right away not after all this time and not when you know there is a metoo movement going on. A clear sign of greed and fame sorry to say.

    Soooo, is anything being said about the women using their sexuality to get roles or is it just the men who are on trial? Reminds me of those peer pressure lectures, instead of being adults and standing up for themselves, they just let it happen and then come back now to complain. And what happened to innocent until proven guilty? Now actors are getting pulled from things or having to quit just because of "allegations".

    I believe he did it, these Hollywood men have power and a bad case of pride and they abuse that. They're so prideful they think that just because they're famous celebrities that an average person should idolize them and do whatever to please them when that's not the case and so they abuse other peoples rights or entice them to do something that is clearly morally wrong. This is a time that Hollywood needs to be exposed for what it really is.

    I'm going to be very blunt here.....and I'm sure it will be no wonder to anyone, why I am a single man. Is there ANY woman that made it to the "BIG SCREEN" without crossing the "Casting Couch"? It seems like there are none. We ALL know there are dogs in Hollywood but REALLY? ALLof them? Every day there is a new one. So what are we supposed to assume? Every star went through the procedure?
    A legit (MALE) talent scout today will now have to have a female co-worker during all interviews. Cameras and recorders will record all interactions. At the end of the day when the producers decide that it's not worth the aggravation, you will then come out with your own version of affirmative action claiming that women are not treated the same as men.........hum

  • Barrow Alaska California

    What do you mean you are not going to refute a female if a woman accuses you of assault because you so much believe in their movement? That's nuts! Like females don't lie all the time! He is either a wimp or guilty. I'd say either way, he is no good.

    It's very difficult in a rape culture, such as the Western culture, to know what is appropriate behaviour and what to do about inappropriate behaviour; who to turn to and how to report it, when there are no guarantees the people you approach will take you seriously, whichever side of the accusation you are on.
    Black men were once all suspect, then we added brown people whether Muslim or not, we're throwing in Hollywood stars along with police and priests and politicians, and now we're finally coming back round to all women can't be trusted. Who is benefitting from all this?!
    The backlash was inevitable when it was clear that men who suffer abuse in silence are left out of the picture. We're all in this together. We're all raising the next generation of suspects. Who will they be? My guess is porn addicts. But that won't address the roots of a culture that treats pornography as normal, while simultaneously treating black men, brown people and all women as abnormal.
