Busy Philipps Accuses James Franco Of Assault On ‘Freaks & Geeks’ Set

October 9, 2018

Busy Philipps’ memoir is full of surprises.

In it, the Cougar Town alum opens up for the first time about an incident that occurred with James Franco when the two played love interests on the short-lived NBC sitcom Freaks & Geeks. Philipps claims Franco got physically aggressive when she gently shoved him in the chest as part of a scripted scene.

“He grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, ‘DON’T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!’” Philipps writes in her book, This Will Only Hurt A Little. “And he threw me to the ground. Flat on my back. Wind knocked out of me.”

Franco later apologized for the incident at the behest of producers, and has not commented on Philipps’ claims. In January, he faced accusations of sexual misconduct from five different women, denying all of them.
