Tommy Wiseau reveals what he would have said during Golden Globes speech

Hannah Rogers | 13 January, 2018, 21:53

"Why is a man hosting?" she asked in her first Golden Globes tweet, all of which have since been deleted (but screenshots can be seen on Vanity Fair).

Do you understand life, James Franco? Said too much. Nite love ya #goldenglobes, ' Sheedy, 55, tweeted.

Sheedy worked with Franco in the 2014 off-Broadway production of The Long Shrift. "Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes", adding #MeToo, which has become synonymous with victims of sexual harassment and abuse.

And just as Tommy waltzed up to be part of the celebration he tried to grab the mic from James to give a little speech for himself.

"Cute #TIMESUP pin James Franco", Paley tweeted.

He also expressed confusion about some tweets from the actress Ally Sheedy.

Soon after he was announced as the victor, The Breakfast Club star Ally Sheedy, who appeared in Franco's 2014 off-Broadway play The Long Shrift, posted a number of tweets, which were later deleted, expressing her disgust at Franco's win and questioning why he was allowed at the Golden Globes.

You can read the full story here at The Los Angeles Times. As soon as Franco walked onstage (dragging along his brother and co-star Dave Franco), he beckoned for Wiseau to join him.

Franco previously faced controversy in 2014, after he appeared to try to hook up with a 17-year-old Scottish tourist in New York City via Instagram.

"He wasn't in character as Tommy Wiseau, but once he started the day doing Tommy's voice, he would spend the rest of the day doing the voice", Mantzoukas said.

"The idea was to keep the insanity, but push it as far over the top as I can and preserve the fact that everybody there knows I'm making a comedy. except one person."

At the Globes the vast majority those attending - men and women - wore black or Time's Up badges to show their support for the movement.

Representatives for Franco and Sheedy did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.
