Busy Philipps Alleges James Franco Assaulted Her On 'Freaks and Geeks'

Her story about James Franco allegedly assaulting her on the set of Freaks and Geeks is not one of them.

Philipps has discussed this incident in the past, including in 2011 at a Paley Fest panel, but she has now delved into more detail about their up-and-down relationship.

NBC via Getty Images Busy Philipps and James Franco worked together on the 1990s NBC series "Freaks And Geeks".

"He threw me to the ground", she writes, "Flat on my back". Like many women in Hollywood culture have said, Phillips writes that she always felt like she was forced to play the role of pacifist, no matter who was right or wrong. "I wanted my f-king line".

Still, Busy said that he was "never punished" for his actions: 'James was full of bad behaviour, so why would this be treated any differently'.

Chinese state councilor meets USA state secretary, calling for win-win cooperation
A meeting of top U.S. and Chinese diplomats in Beijing to discuss North Korean nuclear disarmament got off to a frosty start. US officials have thus far said the penalties will remain in place until the North's denuclearization is fully verified.

This isn't the first time Franco's reputation has been questioned this year. 'I never knew this conversation existed, and in an improv, I smacked him on the thing, and he was like, "Don't ever touch me", and grabbed me and shoved me to the ground.

The allegation against "The Disaster Artist" actor by Philipps, a mother of two, comes less than a year after five women accused Franco of sexual misconduct in a report by the Los Angeles Times. It was an overreaction by a 19-year-old dude. 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. At one point he apologized to me.

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

Philipps recently posted on Instagram sharing the story of how she was raped when she was 14-years-old. The future Pineapple Express star apparently didn't like that and took it out on his scene partner, she writes. "I finally told my parents and sister about it 4 months ago".

Franco hasn't responded to media requests about Philipps' accusation, and his publicists did not immediately reply to a request for comment from HuffPost.
