Actor Seth Rogen says he does not plan to collaborate again with James Franco, his "Pineapple Express" and "The Interview" co-star who has been accused of sexual harassment.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, a British newspaper, Rogen said that he ceased working with Franco after the allegations against the Oscar-nominated actor resurfaced in 2018 and added that he has no plans to resume his partnership.

"I also 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," he told the Times.


"I can say it, um, you know, it has changed many things in our relationship and our dynamic," he added of his past friendship with Franco, with whom he has worked several times since they both appeared on the TV show "Freaks and Geeks" more than 20 years ago.

Rogen also acknowledged a joke he made onstage during a "Saturday Night Live" monologue in 2014, when he quipped that he "posed as a girl on Instagram, told [Franco] I was way young," adding that Franco "seemed unfazed." The joke was in reference to a 17-year-old's claim that Franco had messaged her on Instagram in a sexually explicit manner.

"I do look back at a joke I made on 'Saturday Night Live' in 2014 and I very much regret making that joke," he told the Times. "It was a terrible joke, honestly."

“The things I heard are not accurate, but I completely support people coming out because they didn’t have a voice for so long. I don’t want to shut them down in any way. I think it's a good thing and I support it," he told Colbert at the time.

“I can’t live if there’s restitution to be made,” Franco continued. “If I’ve done something wrong, I will fix it. I have to. I don’t know what else to do."
