Busy Philipps slams James Franco

Busy Philipps has slammed James Franco.

The pair played a couple on the short-lived TV series 'Freaks and Geeks' in 1999 and Busy claimed he once shoved her to the ground.

Speaking on 'Watch What Happens Live', she said: "James Franco and I really didn't get along when we were on 'Freaks and Geeks'. We were 19 and we really, really disliked each other. It's well-documented.

"He shoved me to the ground once. It was really brutal."

However, Busy, 37, insisted that she and James, 38, have now put their previous issues behind them.

She said: "We're friends now and we really like each other now, as adults, but as kids we did not get along."

James previously spoke about his behaviour on set and admitted he was at fault.

He said: "I'll admit I was not a team player. A lot of it, I think, just had to do with being obnoxious when the camera was on someone else. Maybe I'd eat a banana in the background that would take focus away from other actors. I didn't think about it that way, but now I could say, 'Look, the scene's not about me, it's about them, just chill out, James. Don't eat a f**king banana.'"
