James Franco, who just won a Golden Globe for his performance as Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist, joined Stephen Colbert on the Late Show Tuesday night to discuss the film. Colbert also asked Franco about the criticism he received for wearing a Time’s Up pin during the Globes broadcast and the sexual misconduct allegations that have since resurfaced against him on Twitter. (His live event with the New York Times was also canceled earlier Tuesday.)
“Well, first I want to say I do support it,” Franco said of the Time’s Up initiative. “Look, I was so excited to win, but being in that room that night was incredible. I mean, it was powerful. There were incredible voices and I support it. I support change. I support 50/50 and 20/20, which just means people that are underrepresented—women and people of color, people in the LGBT community—get leadership positions, that they fill all positions that they’ve been deprived of. I completely believe in that. That’s why I wore it.”
