Seth Meyers Grills James Franco Over Sexual Misconduct Claims

And Paley tweeted this: "James Franco".

The actor's name has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons lately after being accused of sexual harassment by more than one woman, which he has denied.

Colbert followed up by asking if there was a way to have this discussion off social media.

HollywoodLifers, what did you think of James' appearance on Seth's show?

'I don't want to shut them down in anyway.

She also wrote, "Why is a man hosting?" He said he hasn't tried to get in touch with her while stumbling for words.

"The Toronto girl, Barbara, eventually came to NY to visit her grandmother", the book reads. Total respect for her.

Meyers then questioned Franco about the current climate of reckoning about sexual harassment. Said too much, ' tweeted actress Ally Sheedy before later deleting it. 'James Franco just won.

Franco paused. "I don't know", he said.

The allegations against Franco were prompted in part by Franco's best actor in a comedy or musical win Sunday at the Golden Globes for his film "The Disaster Artist". "Please never ever ask me why I left the film/tv business", she wrote.

Executives at US cable network HBO are standing by James Franco after the actor was accused of inappropriate sexual behaviour earlier this week.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan, for example, said this on Twitter: "Hey James Franco, now that you have a Golden Globe why don't you give speaking roles that don't require nudity in your upcoming films to the dozens of women who have done full nudity + sex scenes in your indie films and art projects?" I have to do that to maintain my wellbeing.

When asked by Colbert about how to come to some sense of the truth so that there can be a possible reconciliation between the people who have different views, Franco said that if he's done something wrong he will fix it. I don't know. I can't speak for her, I don't know'. As far as the bigger issues, how we do it, look - I really don't have the answers, and I think the point of this whole thing is that we listen.

"I am here to listen and learn and change perspective where it's off".

"I'm completely willing and want to".

You might recall that Franco made headlines back in 2014 when he was exposed for hitting on a 17-year-old girl on Instagram. "If there's restitution to be made, I'll make it".

"I'm leaving my work and they're coming there. I guess I'm just letting it be". If I do a book signing, it'll be 17-year-old to 30-year-old women. I said, 'Do you have a boyfriend?' And her response was, 'Not when you're around.' So that, to me, sounds like, okay, she's interested. How is she a victim? I was like anybody, just trying to meet somebody.
