The men in Hollywood have to be crapping their pants, right? With all the sexual harassment, abuse, and rape allegations coming to light, there have to be so many wondering when their name is going to be dropped. Sure, there are decent dudes out there, but when in a position of power or fame or wealth the opportunities to be a douchebag seem to come easier. It’s how a person handles those opportunities that has some sitting back comfortably as others nervously bite their nails and attempt damage control.

The latest? James Franco, who is breaking his silence about sexual misconduct allegations made against him. On Sunday night, after being awarded the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for The Disaster Artist, actress Ally Sheedy tweeted, “Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much.” She added in the since-deleted tweets, “James Franco just won. Please never ever ask me why I left the film/tv business.”

Sheedy didn’t go into detail, but since then, other women have accused the actor of all kinds of disgusting things.

The Golden Globe winner was a guest on Tuesday night’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert when he was asked about the claims. Franco first cleared up his relationship with Sheedy, saying they worked together on an off-Broadway play and had a “great time,” adding he has “total respect for her” but has “no idea why she was upset.” James pointed out that Ally took the tweet down but “can’t speak for her.”

As for the more detailed accusations on Twitter, Franco said they were “not accurate” but supports the idea of people “coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long.”

Franco added that he supports the Time’s Up campaign and going forward, he plans to “listen and learn and change my perspective where it’s off.”

This coming from the guy who only a few years ago, tried to pick up a teenage girl over social media. #neverforget

Of course, this incident happened when it was actually ‘OK’ for a man to shrug it off with a boyish grin, and chalk it all up to “bad judgment.” Franco blamed it on her and the trickiness of social media, saying in 2014, “You meet somebody in person and you get a feel for them but you don’t know who you’re talking to.” At the time he said he learned his lesson. Has he though?
