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

In her new book, "This Will Only Hurt a Little", actress Busy Philipps writes that her Freaks and Geeksco-star James Franco was a "fucking bully" on the set of the short-lived comedy.

He grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, "DON'T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!"

She then writes about the time Franco "threw" her on the ground. Flat on my back.

She says Franco eventually apologized to her the next day at the behest of the producers and the director. "It's not like I had that many on the show", she writes. Specifically, according to Radar, Philipps - who also has a late night talk show, Busy Tonight, debuting on E! in late October - calls out by name the men who have harmed her over the years.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published a day after an excerpt from her upcoming memoir, "This Will Only Hurt a Little", made headlines because it detailed her previous claim that her co-star "shoved" her to the ground when they were 19. "And it was weird and people's agents had to be called and he had to apologize to me". "He had apparently had a discussion with someone about how it had come out in his character's backstory that he had maybe been abused by his father, so he didn't want to have any physicality between his girlfriend and himself", said Philipps.

In contrast, he turned out to be quite the opposite - a liability and the face of numerous Giants' offensive line failures. Since then, second-year pro Chad Wheeler has started New York's past three contests in Flowers's place opposite Solder.

Palestinian gunman kills two Israelis in occupied West Bank, army says
Palestinian militant groups praised the attack, calling it revenge for Israeli "crimes" towards the Palestinians. The Palestinian used a homemade gun in the attack, known locally as a Carlo , according to Conricus.

She admitted that she knows she might make Franco's fans angry.

The actress recalled the incident, in less detail, during a Paley Fest cast reunion in 2011 (which Franco wasn't present for), but the conversation quickly pivoted. "It was really brutal", she told Cohen. 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.

Roger Howarth took over the part of Franco in 2013 when we learned the character committed his many crimes due to a brain tumor. All of us. I'm scared to post this. "It's very instinctual. I was getting ready, and I turned on the hearings right when Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford started".

Reps for Franco, Feig and Apatow did not immediately return our requests for comment.
