James Franco was not nominated for an Oscar, and there isn’t a shadow of a doubt the reason is that 5 women have accused him of sexual misconduct. It’s a stunning statement … Franco won the Golden Globe and the Critics’ Choice Awards for Best…
Alison Brie could not fully celebrate her achievements at the 2018 SAG Awards on Sunday night.
The actress was nominated for her fantastic role in the Netflix series GLOW, while the comedy itself was nominated as well for a cast ensemble award.
But Brie was forced to address a certain controversy surrounding her family before she entered the Shrine Auditorium.
As you've likely read about by now, James Franco has been accused of sexual misconduct by five different women.
In one instance, an alleged victim claims Franco pulled his penis out in front of her; in another, an alleged victim claims he removed the cloth over her vagina for an oral sex scene that was being filmed.
Pretty heinous stuff, if true.
Brie, meanwhile, is married to Franco's brother, Dave.
So she has a personal stake in this scandal.
Therefore, E!'s Giuliana Rancic simply had to ask the actress for her thoughts on the SAG Awards red carpet.
“What we’ve always said is that it remains vital that anyone who feels victimized should and does have the right to speak out and come forward,” replied Brie, adding:
“I obviously support my family and not everything that’s been reported is fully accurate, so I think we’re waiting to get all the information.
"But, of course, now is a time for listening and that’s what we’re all trying to do.”
Franco is reportedly in a very bad place as a result of these accusations.
But not many people out there have sympathy for him.
At the Women's March over the weekend, for example, Scarlett Johansson went right after her fellow A-Lister.
"My mind baffles – how could a person publicly stand by an organization that helps to provide support for victims of sexual assault while privately preying on people who have no power," the star said at a podium in Los Angeles, concluding with anger:
"I want my pin back by the way."
Her rep later confirmed that Johansson was talking about Franco.
The actor's lawyer has denied all accusations against his client.
But it's safe to assume this story is not going away any time soon.
