Actress Busy Philipps, who recently published her memoir This Will Only Hurt A Little, has complained that her story about being assaulted by James Franco on the set of Freaks & Geeks ended up pulling focus away from the rest of the book.

During a recent appearance on Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live, the actress expressed frustration that the story, which had been widely reported before, but was picked up again in the wake of the book, overwhelmed the entire press tour.

“It really bummed me out,” she told Cohen, with whom she had originally shared the story in the first place. “I felt like, I’m a woman in this industry who wrote a very personal book about my experiences in life and in this industry.” You can watch the two talk about it below:

She also took The Hollywood Reporter to task in an Instagram post last week, complaining that their extensive profile of her was reduced to a “clickbait headline” about her experience with Franco, and noting that it has since been changed.

“On that note, my book is 308 pages, not one paragraph,” she wrote. “The Franco story is used to illustrate a larger point about the way women are treated in this business and in life.”

I sat with the @hollywoodreporter last week to discuss my book This Will Only Hurt A Little and my new late night talk show @busytonighttv and the link is in my profile if you care to read. They initially had a clickbait headline that’s now been changed and I’m glad for that. On that note, my book is 308 pages, not one paragraph. The Franco story is used to illustrate a larger point about the way women are treated in this business and in life. There are no "allegations" and no "accusations". It's a story that I have been telling for years. James apologized. I accepted. And I still get to tell it because it fucking happened to me. Here's a quote from the Hollywood Reporter article, "In the book, you get into how James Franco was difficult to work with on the set of Freaks and Geeks. Busy: It wasn't even outrageous. At the time, 19 and with my first professional acting job, I was under the impression that this was just the way things were. James and I have talked about it over the years. At one point he apologized to me. I was always acutely aware of my expendability, and so I felt I needed to never complain, always show up on time and not be difficult. If someone else was being difficult, it was my job to be the easy one or figure out a way to soothe the situation." Sending you light and love, bbs. ❤️ Also. The pictures are REALLY PRETTY.❤️
