James Franco may have given an interview to Vanity Fair for their latest Hollywood edition and posed for their cover even, but the magazine decided to digitally remove him from the cover owing to the various allegations that have been levied on him of sexual misconduct. 

The allegations against the actor cropped up soon after he won the Best Actor award at Golden Globes recently. The allegations prompted Vanity Fair to drop his interview from their latest issue which celebrates Hollywood stars talking about Me Too and Times Up Movement. 

“We made a decision not to include James Franco on the Hollywood cover once we learned of the misconduct allegations against him,” a Vanity Fair spokesperson was quoted as saying in The Hollywood Reporter.
