Maggie Gyllenhaal defends keeping James Franco on The Deuce following sexual misconduct allegations
“I feel like it would’ve been the wrong consequence to those accusations to shut our show down," she said in an interview on SiriusXM's Sway in the Morning. It would’ve been like actually the opposite of the right thing to do,” Gyllenhaal “And yet, you know, look, I believe that there should be consequences for disrespecting or assaulting women. Of course, I do.” She added: “You know, we at the time that the accusations against James came out in the L.A. Times we read them all, we took them very seriously. We spoke to every woman on the crew and in the cast to find out if they felt respected and what their experience of working with James was and everyone said that they had been totally respected by him.”
