On Late Night With Seth Meyers, James Franco once again spoke about the sexual misconduct allegations that have been leveled against him. A few women, including actress Ally Sheedy, made these claims on Twitter. Franco has denied any wrongdoing and explained why he hasn’t gone further to refute the claims against him.
Cute #TIMESUP pin James Franco. 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?

“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 it that much,” Franco said. He added, “If I have to take a knock because I’m not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much.”
Franco directed Sheedy in an off-Broadway play and said they’d alway had a good relationship. When asked, he said he has not tried to reach out to her.
“I don’t know. It was so shocking; I guess I’m just letting it be,” Franco said
