Had James Franco not physically blocked him from speaking during his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, Tommy Wiseau says he would have delivered a message of love and acceptance.
Actor and filmmaker Wiseau is the man behind The Room, a movie so terrible and unintentionally humorous that it has a cult following. Franco received the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy for his portrayal of Wiseau in The Disaster Artist, and Wiseau joined him onstage to accept the award. Wiseau reached for the microphone, but just before he could launch into a speech not likely to rival Oprah Winfrey's, Franco swiftly pushed him back.
Wiseau may not have been able to address the world live on television, but after the show he did tell the Los Angeles Times what he planned on saying. "If a lot of people loved each other, the world would be a better place to live," he said. "See The Room, have fun, and enjoy life. The American Dream is alive, and it's real." Wiseau also praised Franco's performance. "He did such a great job, talking as a director and an actor," he said. "I think he make a big effort, which sometimes from the outside is extremely difficult to understand that. He did good with accent."
