James Franco Was Removed from Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue

Vanity Fair made the decision to remove James Franco from its annual Hollywood issue amid the sexual misconduct allegations made against the actor recently.

12 stars are featured on the cover alongside the mag’s departing editor Graydon Carter, but there were supposed to be 13.

“We made a decision not to include James Franco on the Hollywood cover once we learned of the misconduct allegations against him,” a spokesperson for the mag told THR.

Something that brings the talent in the spread together is their support for the #MeToo movement.

“The films and TV shows represented by the actors in this year’s Hollywood Portfolio – which for the first time offers a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot – took the #MeToo movement in stride, offering strong women in leading roles, as well as strong men supporting them,” the article reads.

    Is that why Reese looks like she has three legs and in the other shot Oprah has three hands? Trying to remove James Franco is the only explanation I can think of for the shoddy photo shopping.

    Welcome to the new USA justice system, guilty until proven innocence.
    No longer a court justice system but a media justice system. lmao

  • moody

    It’s really not funny. Live and careers are being destroyed solely on accusations and no proof.

    There was absolutely no need to announce that Franco was taken off the cover. So unnecessary and was done just to demean him further.

  • lolo13

    Lol fair explanation

  • 777

    You know that “innocent until proven guilty” only applies to court, right? You also know that saying this is a justice system, even though he’s a free man, is ridiculous, right?
    PR is all that matters in the entertainment business, putting Franco in the cover is just bad PR. It’s how it always been, so let’s stop acting as if it’s something new.

  • cutitout

    Even if he is guilty of exactly what the accusers claim, it would still be unfair because they do not qualify as misconduct, assault, or harassment. Sometimes feeling some type of way about something you have done is your conscience telling you it is NOT FOR YOU. You learn, move on and make sure not to ever put your self in those types of situations again. Its not always because the other person was doing something wrong.

  • cutitout

    how dare he try to get some head from a grown woman he flew to location to hook up with him!

  • cutitout

    exactly. And to do so with these weak claims that he can do nothing about.

  • michae gokey

    It doesn’t have to be new to be wrong. It is just plain wrong and it sucks.

  • michae gokey

    Screw this crap. I am a fan of Franco’s work and I will continue to support him and his work. This #MeToo movement is becoming exactly what I thought it would become from the beginning. An outlet for every woman who has ever felt like she was disrespected or heard a penis joke or some guy touched her leg in 1985. The real victims are out there and they have legitimate reasons for going after the men who have wronged them. But every single case of he said this, he did that, doesn’t qualify as a reason to destroy a man’s life. So some of you women out there, stop acting like China Dolls. Throwing a guy under a bus for something relatively minor doesn’t make you brave, it makes you look soft.

    Although James Franco is under scrutiny for alleged sexual inappropriaty I think it has to me more closely examined He is Not a Harvey Weinstein by any stretch

  • cutitout

    But the media is desperate to break the next story so they are pushing every story even if it has no real merit. These women have been interviewed by TIME magazine! No stories of real assault or harassment, just hurt feelings from a silly girl and a whiny entitled chick who is mad that she did not get a bigger role.

  • Rob_Drury

    First, these were allegations, not confirmed events. More importantly, when is everyone gonna lighten up?

  • Rob_Drury

    “Live and careers are being destroyed solely on accusations and no proof.”

    So true. Take Donald Trump for example…

  • Rob_Drury

    “You know that “innocent until proven guilty” only applies to court, right?”

    WRONG! It applies to common decency.

  • Rob_Drury

    Spot on! No means no; unless one’s actions say “yes.”

  • 777

    Not how it works. No one owes anyone anything.

  • moody

    Must he be brought into every single post?🙄🙄🙄🙄

  • moody

    Never, apparently.

  • Rob_Drury

    No; not if you’re not a decent human being.

  • Maria M.

    They are not even alleging any events. One of them regretted starring in his movie for peanuts and the other one regretted dating him, apparently. He didn’t do anything.

  • Melissa Iris

    Please. None of these allegations even surfaced until he won the Golden Globe
