Did James Franco Finally Speak About His #Metoo Controversy?

James Franco addressed the sexual misconduct allegations against him in a podcast interview released, marking the first time the 43-year-old actor has publicly spoken about them in nearly four years.

He said: “In that silence, in the vacuum of me speaking out, now my family and friends have had to answer for me. And I don’t think that’s right. I don’t want anybody to have to answer for me.”

In the nearly hour-long episode of “The Jess Cagle Podcast,” recorded. Franco stated that he had slept with some of his students at Studio 4. He denied creating a “pipeline” for sexual exploitation, as he was accused of doing in his capacity as a teacher, but said he did not factor in the power imbalance.

He said of the Sex Scenes master class described by the Times: “Look, I’ll admit, I did sleep with students. I didn’t sleep with anybody in that particular class, but over the course of my teaching, I did sleep with students. And that was wrong. But like I said, it’s not why I started school. … It wasn’t a master plan on my part.”

Franco repeated in the episode that he has “just been doing a lot of work” over the past four years. He attributed some of the behavior in question to history with addiction, stemming from his alcohol abuse as a teen, and said he “really used my recovery background to start examining this and changing who I was.”
