James Franco Is 'In A Really Bad Place' Following Sexual Assault Allegations (Report)

James Franco is reportedly not doing well following sexual assault allegations that have recently come out against the actor.

The 39-year-old The Disaster Artist, who skipped the Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday (January 11), is “in a really bad place” according to a report by People.

“So bad that he changed his phone number,” a source said.

“His close friends are trying to be there for him but it’s been hard – he’s only talking to a select group of people. For now, he’s just hiding out.”

On Wednesday (January 10), James responded to the allegations with Stephen Colbert.

“If I’ve done something wrong, I will fix it. I have to. I don’t know what else to do. As far as the bigger issue of how we do it, I really don’t have the answers. I think the point of this whole thing is that we listen. I’m here to listen and learn and change my perspective where it’s off. I’m completely willing and want to.”

    Am I supposed to fell sorry for him? Because I’m not. And People mag? The one that is ruled by celebs PR? Ok.

  • cafeast

    You mean he won’t get a nom. His Oscar nom is gone… How sad…

  • Leigh Bordelon

    He’s hiding out because he knows he’s been a pig. Nice job, People, for supporting known abusers. Cowards.

  • Danae

    Oh my, is he possibly going to rehab? Since it’s the only solution to every deviation expressed by the Hollyweird elite?
    Ask his victims what place are they in. Must be full of rainbows and unicorns.

  • Torii Wehling

    Abusers always feel bad for themselves

  • dmr

    innocent people don’t need to go into hiding and change their #. Plus he is denying it, which makes him look more of a jerk than he already is. Like this is some new information on him he just learned. Please

  • Rubí

    Dear JustJared i love you but you need to steep up your game, first with that “Mumford Wives” lead, amd now this. I expect better from you. Btw your #NoKidsPolicy is amazing.

  • Steven

    Awwww…not. Abuse is never acceptable.

  • moody

    I gave him the benefit of the doubt but I agree with you. Innocent people don’t need to hide and change their phone numbers. How do these men think they are not going to be exposed for what they are?

  • wearing

    I’m sorry that these people are so confused by the shift in women (and men) standing up for themselves. What was once “acceptable” to them is now not. After this, there will be a new crop of men who KNOW that they will be held accountable and that women (and men) are people not f-ck objects to play with, and it won’t be so confusing for their poor brains.

  • tom

    The way he acted against tommy you can tell this guy like affleck are assholes

    Well, when folks have been brainwashed into believing that anyone who makes an allegation of sexual assault is telling the truth there is no such thing as being innocent for men in these cases. If he says it’s not true he is “denying” it as you put it so he is in a no win situation. What are you talking about?

  • cutitout

    I would love to see how some of these commenters would behave if you were being accused of something they did not do or in this case vilified for other peoples internal issues with the choices they made.

  • Johnny Law

    I’m sure you’re safe. Because you’re a slob.

  • 007CAAgent

    Abusers will also face the people, the public with a smile and supporting causes to stop this. Its worse when they are married to people who pay to hide their abuse.

  • cafeast

    Wrath of Lindsay… should not have tried to fuck 17 year olds…

  • 777

    That’s a brilliant PR move, make people feel sorry for him.

  • Sansa Squad

    *5 people* who have been telling similar, consistent stories for months/years (and the others who have publicly corroborated what happened to them) are ALL lying? Please. This is not the hill you want to die on.

  • ugh


  • Ram

    the fact that just jared would post this shows how much JJ and People are alike. good to know JJ is an outlet that is willing to give a voice to all those poor abusers and predators! – JJ, you’ve become such a celebrity shill, you might be on your knees harder than People, the Original Kneepads for celebrities.

  • Ram

    They are so used to getting away with it, they think they are untouchable.

  • Ram

    try harder, troll.

  • Ram

    damn, maybe set your post history to private :-P its unraveling you…

  • Jules

    Cry me a damn river.

  • SquidBillie

    Aww…Poor dude in a bad place? Time to go to that fake rehab in Arizona…

    And Wahlberg

    Specially after they get caught.

  • Fawkes

    He should be. Time’s up.

  • Thiran Uthaman

    Not defending Franco here, but being guilty and going in hiding are not necessarily connected. Its like saying being guilty and going to prison are connected – which is obviously not.

  • alex


  • cafeast

    I read the article and all the allegations – nothing even remotely states sexual assault or even abuse of power. One girl whom he dumped is now offended!!!!!!!! that he asked for a bj, she complied and then she went onto have a full on sexual/romantic relationship with him!
    This is capitally ridiculous.

  • Thinkinitthrough

    It is ridiculous if you have no moral conscience or compass
