Franco — who has faced a few allegations in recent days, including some from actress Ally Sheedy (who deleted her tweets) — told Colbert the things being said about him “on Twitter are not accurate.”
“There were some things on Twitter, um, I haven’t read them. I’ve heard about them. Okay, first of all, I have no idea what I did to Ally Sheedy,” Franco said. “I directed her in a play off-Broadway. I had nothing but a great time with her, total respect for her. I have no idea why she was upset. She took the tweet down. I don’t know. I can’t speak for her … I don’t know.”
He continued, “The others, look, in my life, I pride myself on taking responsibility for things I’ve done. I have to do that to maintain my well-being. I do it whenever I know that there’s something wrong that needs to be changed. I make it a point to do it. The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate, but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice, because they didn’t have a voice for so long, so I don’t want to shut them down in any way. I think it’s a good thing, and I support it.”
Franco won the Golden Globe for best actor on Sunday and wore a Time’s Up pin to the event, which sparked some people to come forward with accusations against him.
