Busy Philipps wants to make it clear that James Franco apologized for allegedly shoving her to the ground on Freaks and Geeks
On Instagram, Phillips addressed the reports of her writing about Franco bullying her in her upcoming memoir, This Will Only Hurt A Little, pointing out that "my book is 308 pages, not one paragraph. The Franco story is used to illustrate a larger point about the way women are treated in this business and in life. There are no 'allegations' and no 'accusations'. It's a story that I have been telling for years. James apologized. I accepted. And I still get to tell it because it f*cking happened to me.” In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Philipps said: "It wasn't even outrageous. At the time, 19 and with my first professional acting job, I was under the impression that this was just the way things were. James and I have talked about it over the years. At one point he apologized to me. I was always acutely aware of my expendability, and so I felt I needed to never complain, always show up on time and not be difficult. If someone else was being difficult, it was my job to be the easy one or figure out a way to soothe the situation."
