What a tough situation for Alison Brie.

On Sunday, the GLOW actress hit the SAG Awards red carpet as she was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series. However, as brother-in-law James Franco has recently been accused of sexual misconduct by several women, Brie was inundated with questions about the controversy.

While Alison’s Netflix hit is all about female empowerment, she’s also incredibly close to husband Dave Franco‘s family. Thus, we can only imagine how torn the Mad Men alum feels during this time.

Thankfully, Alison didn’t dodge the question as she addressed the alleged misconduct with Giuliana Rancic. The 35-year-old shared:

“I think that above all, what we’ve always said is it remains vital that anyone that feels victimized should and does have the right to speak out and come forward. I obviously support my family. Not everything that has been reported is fully accurate, so I think we’re waiting to get all the information. But of course now is the time for listening and that’s what we’re all trying to do.”

Clearly, Alison doesn’t want to victim blame, but also doesn’t want to abandon her family ties during this drama. Again, what a tough situation to be stuck in!! Twitter has since praised Alison for her VERY diplomatic response:

The Community vet then pivoted the conversation to discuss GLOW.

On why she chose to do the wrestling project, she revealed that the comedy was “everything [she] was looking for as an actor.” Not to mention, learning to wrestle empowered Alison quite a bit.

She continued:

“I do feel like I carry that confidence everywhere I go now.”
