James Franco was a guest on The Late Show and he asked David Letterman why the writer/director of his new movie Spring Breakers is banned from the CBS talk show. Franco said that he heard that Harmony Korine was banned because before he appeared on the show for a fourth time, he pushed Meryl Streep. Letterman said that is not why he is banned, but it does have to do with something that happened with Streep. His side of the story is, “I went upstairs to greet Meryl Streep and welcome her to the show, and I knock on the door and she was not in there. And I looked around, and she was not in there, and I found Harmony going through her purse. True story. And so I said, ‘That’s it, put her things back in her bag and then get out.'”
Afterwards Letterman said he would have him back on the show, but I don’t see any reason to because his movie already flopped. Can you tell I am still disgusted with Harmony over Kids, one of the most despicable movies ever made?
Now when it comes to the banning it’s OK to make a fool of yourself like Joaquin Phoenix did, but it is not OK to allegedly go through someone’s purse like Harmony did. Sounds rationale to me.
