Bijou Phillips Offers Apology to Daniel Franzese, He Responds

Bijou Phillips Offers Apology to Daniel Franzese, He Responds”

On Friday, Franzese published a Facebook post in which he accused Phillips of harassing him about his sexuality on the set of their 2001 film Bully.

Bijou Phillips is apologizing to a "Mean Girls" star for bullying him over his sexuality.

"It was such a blessing to get a foot into Hollywood's door but I was greeted at that door with homophobia, body shaming and abuse", Franzese wrote.

Franzese was closeted at the time and says he was fearful of losing his job.

Explaining how the Raising Hope actress had allegedly forced him to confess to being bisexual, Franzese explained, "A‬s we were shooting she kept loudly saying "Are you gay?!" and laughing‪ while ‬the producers‪ ‬and photographer did nothing‪ ‬to stop her but some of my cast like Michael Pitt and Brad Renfro kept telling her to shut up‪ ‬but she continued to say "Are You Gay?!" "I have told this story to magazines, TV shows and Q&A's but I feel like it is always cut out of the article or has never really been heard", he wrote.

She told TMZ in a statement, "I was a teenager and reckless in my behavior.I know Daniel to be a trustworthy and honest person, and to find out through social media that I was not the friend I thought I was to him made me so sad". "He told me not to listen to her that I was lovely and such a great actor etc and I loved him and respected him so much for that moment". "I have nothing but love for the LGBTQ community and Daniel", she went on to say. I was an extremely late bloomer.

In the early hours of Monday, Nov. 13, 2017, Franzese tweeted out that he'd received the apology from Phillips, which he accepted. "The Bi guy is here!'"

Franzese, who described himself as "the chubby kid who wore his shirt in the pool", later recalled a moment when he had to appear shirtless in a scene.

Unfortunately for Franzese, Phillips' alleged abuse didn't end there.

Franzese added that while filming a scene that required him to take his shirt off, Phillips broke character at the sight of his torso, pointed at him and "at the top of her lungs yelled 'Ewwww gross!'"

Franzese claimed the 37-year-old actress, the daughter of musician John Phillips and actress, model, and artist Geneviève Waïte, had asked someone to call him to her trailer - where he found, to his shock, Phillips apparently having sex with another actor. "I stopped talking to her for the rest of filming".

She also told Franzese that he reminded her of her aunt Carnie Wilson, whose struggle with her weight was in the headlines at the time.

"To this day I'm not even sure if she gave me a concussion because I was light headed and dizzy for a while", he wrote in the post.
