While filming a scene of Freaks and Geeks, Philipps alleges she was directed to gently hit Franco in the chest while delivering her line.

In 2014 he described social media as "tricky" when it was revealed that he had hit on a 17-year-old girl via Instagram messages, despite knowing her age the actor still attempted to meet her at a hotel.

"He grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, "DON'T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!'" she wrote in the book". Flat on my back.

Actress Busy Philipps attends The Comedy Central Roast of James Franco at Culver Studios on August 25, 2013 in Culver City. She chose not to as Franco apologized to her the following day, having been forced to do so by the show's producers and director.

Her memoir This Will Only Hurt a Little will be out later this month.

This isn't the first time Franco's character has come into question.

The "I Feel Pretty" actress portrayed Kim Kelly on the teen drama, the on-and-off girlfriend of Franco's character, Daniel Desario. During her 2016 appearance on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live, she said the two "really, really disliked each other", and elaborated on his behavior. Three years layer, a 17-year-old left her bloody and bruised, but she did not tell her family.

Alisson helped Roma reach the Champions League semi-finals last season and is the second-most expensive goalkeeper in history. Other nominees are Pernille Harder, Lindsey Horan, Fran Kirby, Sam Kerr, Lieke Martens, Megan Rapinoe and Christine Sinclair.


Philipps notes that Franco was never formally reprimanded for his actions and continued to work without effect.

"We're friends now and we really like each other now as adults, but as kids we did not get along", she said. After the #MeToo movement, five women spoke out earlier this year to the Los Angeles Times - some former students who felt exploited for what they perceived as career advancement.

This Will Only Hurt a Little, which hits stores on October 16, will also detail Philipps's sexual assault at the age of 14.
