Alison Brie Addresses James Franco Allegations on the SAG Awards Red Carpet
Alison Brie attended last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards as a nominee for her performance in Glow, but she's making headlines for answering a question on the red carpet before the ceremony even began.
 
E! red carpet correspondent Giuliana Rancic asked the actress about the sexual misconduct allegations against her brother-in-law, James Franco (she's married to his brother, Dave Franco).
 
When asked how she and her family have been affected by the allegations, Brie responded, "I think that above all, what we've always said, it remains vital that anyone that feels victimized should and does have the right to speak out and come forward."
 
She continued, "I obviously support my family, and not everything that's been reported is fully accurate, so we're waiting to get all the information. But of course, now is a time for listening, and that's what we're all trying to do."
 
Watch a clip of the red carpet conversation below.
 

Reaction to her comments has been mixed, with some (including one of Franco's accusers) accusing Brie of defending an alleged sexual predator, while others have pointed out that Franco is the one who should have to answer for his behaviour. See some of the reactions to Brie's answer below.
