The recent Vanity Fair cover making the rounds for its body positivity – namely for celebrating Reese Witherspoon’s three legs and Oprah Winfrey’s three hands – was originally supped to be even crappier with the inclusion of James Franco, Vanity Fair representatives tell The Hollywood Reporter. But recently Franco was labeled as a sexual assailant – in addition to being a narcissistic gay-baiting opportunistic walking canvas of smile lines created by cackling at his own jokes – and was axed at the last second, reducing the number of stars accompanying outgoing VF editor Graydon Carter on the cover to twelve. Or eleven if you take into account the fact that Nicole Kidman was replaced with a painting of 90’s Naomi Watts. Honestly it’s getting embarrassing at this point. Here’s what the spokespimp for Vanity Fair had to say about dropping Franco’s ass:
We made a decision not to include James Franco on the Hollywood cover once we learned of the misconduct allegations against him. The films and TV shows represented by the actors in this year’s Hollywood Portfolio — which for the first time offers a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot — took the #MeToo movement in stride, offering strong women in leading roles, as well as strong men supporting them.
You will know that this site has been hijacked by Russians if I ever start to defend Franco against anything, but I do wonder what his accusers have up their sleeves, because Franco sure is getting stage four shat on by the industry without having any hard evidence against him, as far as we know. The fact that Franco is simply able to live with himself every day already proves that he’s delusional and suffers from some sort of psychosis, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the rumors were true and he forced his Pineapple Express into some teen’s face. Allegedly. Not innocent until proven guilty is so much more fun. I wish we had been doing this all along.
