Franco held a dinner for his fellow actors who were nominated for Best Actor award on January 6, Saturday, a night before Golden Globes. he was considered to beat his fellow Best Actor nominees - Daniel Kaluuya for Get Out, Ansel Algort for Baby Driver, Steve Carell for Battle of the Sexes, and Jackman for The Greatest Showman. Sheedy did not include a specific allegation against Franco, and a spokesperson for Sheedy did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment.

"Ok wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo", she added, seemingly referencing insider info she has on the two stars.

A third exclaimed, "James Franco just won. Please never ever ask me why I left the film/tv business", she wrote.

The Breakfast Club actress worked with Franco on the 2014 off-Broadway play he directed, The Long Shrift.

In 2014, Franco made headlines when messages became public that showed he reportedly tried to arrange a meet-up with the fan at a NY hotel after she saw his show. After she took a video of him and posted it to her Instagram account, the then-35-year-old actor allegedly asked her to tag him in it.

Days after the story broke on Gawker, Franco appeared on Live With Kelly and Michael and admitted to trying to arrange a hook-up with the girl, though he didn't explain why he had hit on someone who wasn't of legal age. "I'm embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky", Franco said. "I used bad judgement and I learned my lesson". Franco mentioned his other pals, telling the viewers they "taught me to be a better director, a more responsible person".

In an interview with Howard Stern later that month, Franco said that he wasn't intentionally pursuing teenage girls. "I'm not going to high schools looking for dates".
