When speaking on the podcast, the The Disaster Artist actor admitted to sleeping with students, claiming it “was wrong”.

Franco said he had developed a sex addiction after he became sober from an alcohol addiction he developed at a young age” as reported by The Guardian.

The actor said “he has spoken out now as he doesn’t want ‘Seth or my brother or anyone to have to answer for him anymore’”.

This comes after long time co-star and friend Seth Rogan cut all ties to the actor earlier this year. You can read more about this here.
