Seth Rogen "doesn't plan to" work with James Franco again after he was accused of sexual misconduct.
The 39-year-old star has previously teamed up with the '127 Hours' actor on movies such as 'Pineapple Express' and 'This Is the End', and Seth admitted in a 2018 interview he would still work with James - who was accused of inappropriate behaviour earlier that year by five women - but he has changed his mind.
He said: "I look back to that interview in 2018 where I comment that I would keep working with James, and the truth is that I have not and I do not plan to right now."
In 2019, James and his partners at Playhouse West Studio 4 - which opened in 2014 but closed three years later - were hit by claims from two women that students at his acting school were sexually exploited, but he later filed an objection, claiming the pair were "attention-hungry" and made "false and inflammatory" accusations for publicity.
The pair agreed to drop their individual claims after reaching a deal in February 2021, but elements of the lawsuit could live on in the future.
Last month, Charlyne Yi accused Franco of being a "sexual predator" and alleged Seth has been his "enabler".
She claimed on Instagram: "When I tried to break legal contract & quit Disaster Artist because James Franco is a sexual predator, they tried to bribe me with a bigger acting role.
"I cried and told them that that was the exact opposite of what I wanted, that I didn’t feel safe working with a f****** sexual predator."
When asked about the allegations, Seth said: "What I can say is that I despise abuse and harassment and I would never cover or conceal the actions of someone doing it, or knowingly put someone in a situation where they were around someone like that."
Seth also admitted he "very much regrets" making a joke on 'Saturday Night Live' about a 17-year-old girl's allegation that Franco had propositioned her on Instagram.
Speaking to The Sunday Times Culture magazine, he added: "However, I do look back at a joke I made on 'Saturday Night Live' in 2014 and I very much regret making that joke. It was a terrible joke, honestly."
