Does James Franco have a girlfriend?

Born January 2, 1993, Isabel Pakzad is an actress in her own right.

The 28-year-old has appeared in films such as Birds Of Prey, The Deuce and This is 25.

In November 2020, Franco, 42, opened up about his relationship with Pakzad to Variety, admitting that he’s working harder on being there for her than he was with an ex.

“There was one instance, this old girlfriend was visiting me in New York,” Franco said.

“I had come out here for school. My cat had scratched her in the eye. I had so much work to get done for the next day, I didn’t take her to the hospital.

“I had my assistant take her. That moment haunted me so much. What kind of selfish, self-centered boyfriend are you?,” he added.

Was the sexual misconduct suit against Franco settled?

Actresses and ex-students of Franco – Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal – filed a sexual misconduct lawsuit against the actor in 2019.

The plaintiffs alleged Franco intimated students at an acting and film school he founded into gratuitous and exploitative sexual situations.

Their lawsuit claimed Franco pushed his students into performing in increasingly explicit sex scenes on camera in an “orgy type setting” that went far beyond those acceptable on Hollywood film sets.

Both Tither-Kaplan and Gaal, who first filed the lawsuit in 2019, have agreed to drop their individual claims under an agreement, according to court filing.

According to The AP, both sides had been in discussions on a settlement for several months now, and the lawsuit’s progress was halted while the parties talked.

Plaintiffs’ attorneys from the firm of Valli Kane & Vagnini, LLP confirmed the agreement in a statement to The AP on Saturday, February 20.

The firm added that it will be “further memorialized in a Joint Stipulation of Settlement to be filed with the Court at a later date,” but giving no further comment or details.

Last month, actress Charlyne Yi spoke out about her experience working with James and Seth on the 2017 film, The Disaster Artist, in a lengthy Instagram post.

Charlyne – who played costume designer Safowa Bright-Asare in the movie – said she tried to “break legal contract” and quit because she didn’t feel “safe” working with James.

The Good Girls actress alleged that bosses “bribed” her by offering her a larger role on the movie.

She wrote: “When I tried to break legal contract and quit Disaster Artist because James Franco is a sexual predator, they tried to bribe me with a bigger acting role.

“I cried and told them that that was the exact opposite of what I wanted, that I didn’t feel safe working with a f**ing sexual predator.”

What did Seth Rogen say about working with James Franco?

Seth Rogen said he won’t work with James Franco after a series of sexual misconduct claims.

He further claimed he is “ashamed” of the joke he made during an episode of Saturday Night Live where they addressed James’ alleged messages with a teen girl.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, Seth addressed the recent scandal surrounding James, who has been his co-star in several movies, such as Pineapple Express, The Disaster Artist, This Is The End, The Interview, Sausage Party, and many others.

The 39-year-old told the outlet when asked about actress Charlyne Yi who claimed James was a “sexual predator” while Seth was “an enabler:” “What I can say is that I despise abuse and harassment, and I would never cover or conceal the actions of someone doing it, or knowingly put someone in a situation where they were around someone like that.”

In the skit, Seth told the audience: “To make myself feel better I decided to prank James Franco.

“I posed as a girl on Instagram told him I was way young. He seemed unfazed. I have a date to meet him at the Ace Hotel.”

However, in light of the most recent allegations, Seth said about the joke: “I do look back at a joke I made on Saturday Night Live in 2014 and I very much regret making that joke.

“It was a terrible joke, honestly. And I also look back to that interview in 2018 where I comment that I would keep working with James, and the truth is that I have not and I do not plan to right now.”
