Wait, Tommy Wiseau Didn't Really Direct The Room?

Franco, who won best actor in a motion picture musical or comedy, plays Wiseau in the film about the making of The Room, a cult favorite considered to be the best-worst film ever made.

While Mariah Carey's bodycon black dress had tongues wagging on the red carpet, it was James Franco that was hot topic of conversation inside The Beverly Hilton for the 75th Golden Globe Awards.

"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). "If you haven't seen The Deuce, it's about Times Square in the '70s when NY was so seedy there were two James Francos".

Franco, who in addition to starring in it, directed The Disaster Artist.

In 2014, Franco made headlines when messages became public that showed he reportedly tried to arrange a meet-up with the fan at a NY hotel after she saw his show.


Paley later clarified her tweet by writing: "Just to be clear I wasn't 17, I was an adult". Twitter had as much of a blast with the moment as Mr. Wiseau did. Remember the time you pushed my head down in a vehicle towards your exposed p***s & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17?

In three tweets posted to her account, the 55-year-old Breakfast Club actress suggested that Franco, 39, was involved in her decision to leave the film and television business.

Plus, as Golden Globe winners like Guillermo del Toro and Gary Oldman found out at the ceremony, each recipient is given a short amount of time to get out their thank-yous. Forcing Wiseau away with the back of his hand, Franco dismissed the film's entire goal and premise that he had so often reiterated in interviews, that The Disaster Artist was a true homage to the vision of a eccentric, determined (albeit often misguided), auteur.
