“I have my own side of this story, but I believe in these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say, just because I believe in it that much,” Franco said. He added, “If I have to take a knock because I’m not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much.”

Franco directed Sheedy in an off-Broadway play and said they’d alway had a good relationship. When asked, he said he has not tried to reach out to her.

“I don’t know. It was so shocking; I guess I’m just letting it be,” Franco said
