HOLLYWOOD- Actress Ashley Judd is all praise for James Francos' response to the sexual harassment allegations levelled against him by at least five women.

"I think that what James said is terrific. And I think that we have all behaved, at a certain level, unconsciously, and done things that were insensitive, inappropriate, without necessarily understanding that they were," Judd said.

"I mean, we have all operated with a certain amount of tone deafness, and I like the culpability, and we have to have restorative justice.

"This is about men and women being all together and having a more equitable and just workplace, home life, social spaces. I mean, we know that when women are empowered in the workplace and are in decision-making positions that workplaces have better financial outcomes and there's less harassment when there is more diversity," she added.

Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, has denied all the allegations.
