Stephen Colbert on the opening of the show interviewed Dalai Lama and it was all smiles but he is not usually a comic guy. He sometimes does take things to the next level. This time Colbert made Golden Globe-winning actor James Franco to address the sexual harassment allegations and Franco did actually open up about all the allegations.

“The Late Show” on Tuesday, Stephen Colbert put on a crazy show with Franco. He made jokes about him taking other actors for food, a day before Golden Globes.
Further, Stephen distributed enough of Francos' to his viewers by calling Dave Franco on stage and finally made the actor address the elephant into the room.
Since Sunday many celebrities commented on Franco wearing Time's up batch and showing in a black dress. “The Disaster Artist,” after his very first Golden Globe as a lead character didn't go without getting criticised by multiple women.
Among them was actress Ally Sheedy tweeted that he was an example of “why I left the film/tv business,” though she later removed the message.
Hey James Franco, nice #timesup pin at the #GoldenGlobes , remember a few weeks ago when you told me the full nudity you had me do in two of your movies for $100/day wasn't exploitative because I signed a contract to do it? Times up on that!

But the actor talked in a broader sense and addressed the allegation saying
“First of all, I have no idea what I did to Ally Sheedy,” he said. “I directed her in a play Off-Broadway, I had nothing but a great time with her, total respect for her. I have no idea why she was upset.” He added, “The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate, but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice.”
But the sexual allegations over a seventeen years old wasn't mentioned, but the things that actor told was really impressive and believable.
