Despite being the frontrunner for the Best Actor Oscar after winning the same award at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards, James Franco skipped the Critics Choice Awards last night. I guess we’re supposed to feel sorry for him or whatever.
“He’s in a really bad place, so bad that he changed his phone number,” a source close to the situation told PEOPLE. “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.”
In case you missed it, which is entirely possible post-Weinstein, but James Franco has been accused of “sexually exploitive behavior” by five women. I’m sure more are coming. Man, Casey Affleck sure dodged this while #MeToo thing. He walked up on stage and accepted an Oscar with like 82 rape allegations. This is probably why Franco feels bad.
