Busy Philipps Describes Moment James Franco Assaulted Her In Memoir

Busy Philipps did not hold back in her memoir, ‘This Will Only Hurt a Little,’ describing a moment James Franco assaulted her on set of ‘Freaks and Geeks.’

Busy Philipps is telling all in her memoir, This Will Only Hurt a Little, due out in Oct. 16. Among the list of names she calls out for assault and sexual abuse is James Franco. The two starred in 1999’s Freaks and Geeks together as a Sid and Nancy-esque high school couple.

Philipps recalls Franco as a “f***ing bully” on set of the show. According to Radar, the actress detailed a moment when Franco pushed her to the ground while filming. In a scene where she was directed to give him a gentle push, he broke character and suddenly lost his temper.

“He grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, ‘DON’T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!’” she wrote. “And he threw me to the ground. Flat on my back. Wind knocked out of me.”

Franco reportedly stormed off afterwards and their co-star, Linda Cardellini, advised Philipps call her manager. The actor apologized the next day after being told to do so by the director and producers, but Philipps claims that he never received any kind of punishment.
