FRANCO ‘EDITED OUT’ OF VANITY FAIR’S ANNUAL ISSUE
In the wake of the sexual misconduct allegations levied against him, James Franco, was removed from the Vanity Fair cover photo. The Disaster Artist star sat for a photoshoot and conducted an interview for ‘12 Extraordinary Stars, One Momentous Year.’ “We made a decision not to include James Franco on the cover once we learned of the misconduct allegations against him,” the publication said in a statement.
Allegations of sexual misconduct involving the 39year-old emerged in force during the Golden Globes, where Franco won best actor, musical or comedy for his role as Tommy Wiseau. The cover features Oprah Winfrey, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hanks, Michael B. Jordan, Zendaya, Jessica Chastain, Claire Foy, Michael Shannon, Harrison Ford, Gal Gadot, Vanity Fair editor-inchief Graydon Carter, and Robert De Niro.
