Considering how many women have accused him of sexual assault/inappropriate behavior/coercion, this A-/B+ list actress from an acting family might not enjoy answering questions about this A list actor from an acting family, but SHE is the one who decided not to fire him after all the accusations became public.
She has never given an answer as to why she decided to keep him employed.
She just sidesteps questions about his behavior and shames people for asking them.
Maggie Gyllenhaal Says Questions About James Franco Annoy Her: ‘I Have Nothing To Do With It’
Maggie Gyllenhaal hits the podium while doing a reading onstage during An Evening with the Cast of HBO’s The Deuce to benefit Housing Works at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe on Sunday (June 23) in New York City.
The 41-year-old actress was joined at the event by her The Deuce co-stars James Franco, Daniel Sauli, Sepideh Moafi, Dominique Fishback, Chris Bauer and Margarita Levieva.
Maggie, also a producer on The Deuce, recently opened up about getting questions about her collaborator James after his allegations regarding sexual misconduct.
“Yeah, that annoys me. I have been asked to answer for him and I have nothing to do with it,” Maggie expressed (via Vulture). “But I feel like it’s important to continue making the show. I feel like a political wife or something. I don’t like that.” – Source
