Hugh Jackman's hilarious reaction to being overlooked for a Golden Globe in favour of James Franco has gone viral. Unbeknownst to the actor, he also experienced a surge of backlash on Twitter while accepting his second Globe (he also won Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie for James Dean in 2002). "Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo".
"Why is a man hosting?"
James Franco stopped Tommy Wiseau from having his moment on stage at the 2018 Golden Globes, which left everyone asking: What epic wisdom was he going to share with the world?
Then she wrote, "Ok wait. Bye. Said too much. Nite love ya #goldenglobes", she tweeted. The Breakfast Club star insinuated it was hypocritical of the 39-year-old actor to wear a "Time's Up" button on his all-black ensemble, but she deleted her tweets shortly after posting them. Yahoo reached out to representatives for both Franco and Sheedy, but did not receive a response.
She did not elaborate on her experience with Franco further, but in 2014, Franco directed Sheedy in an off-Broadway production of The Long Shrift. In a New York Times article that summer, Sheedy noted the pair had never met until that spring while calling him a "beautiful, generous man". Some of the tweets focused on a 2014 incident in which Franco allegedly hit on a 17-year-old girl on Instagram.
Neither Sheedy nor Franco responded to requests for a comment. The flirty exchanged was published online by the teenager who admitted her age in the supposed messages.
Many women took to social media last night to challenge James Franco's win and his wearing of a Time's Up pin. Franco mentioned his other pals, telling the viewers they "taught me to be a better director, a more responsible person". He continued, "This year I learned from all my friends and collaborators".
