Breakfast Club Star Explains Hollywood Disappearance During James Franco Speech
Breakfast Club legend Ally Sheedy has spoken out against James Franco following his Golden Globes victory Sunday night.
In a string of tweets that have since been deleted, Sheedy slated the actor, asking why he was nominated and how the fact he was sat at a table with Christian Slater who had been previously convicted of assault and sexual harassment.
Franco won for his performance as Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist, even bringing the man up onto the stage as he did so.
James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business.
Ok. Wait. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table. #MeToo
Why is a man hosting? Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much. Nite [sic] love ya…
…Ok wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo…
…James just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business.
Sheedy wasn’t the only critic of Franco last night. Other women spoke out against the 39-year-old actor, who was ridiculed after flirting with a 17-year-old girl on Instagram at the age of 35.
Another actress, Sarah Tither-Kaplan, said:
Hey James Franco, nice #timesup pin at the #GoldenGlobes , 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!
Another woman said:
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?
Ally Sheedy perfomed in an Off-Broadway play in 2014 called The Long Shrift that was directed by James Franco.
It is unknown what might have occurred between the two actors since working together.
