When asked to illuminate her thought process about Franco and his involvement in Deuce, Gyllenhaal, who also produced the series, emphasized the importance of thinking through such matters carefully, leaving room for nuance. Simple black-and-white thinking or action is always going to be problematic, Gyllenhaal say. There are some situations that are easy: this person is a rapist and therefore needs to go to jail. Then there are situations that are much more complicated. I was part of a group of intelligent, thoughtful people on Deuce David Simon and George Pelecanos and also Richard Plepler, who ran HBOwho, were using everything we had in order to consider how to move forward. The question of how, exactly, to deal with alleged abusers has become one of the MeToo and Time Up movements ' chief quandaries, as figures including Louis CK and Aziz Ansari mount comebacks of their own. During a conference call Tuesday, Times Up members discussed the issue of when accused celebrities should be allowed back into the public eye. As one member on call put it, accused has to make amends with their survivor. But common understanding, expressing real change, understanding systemic culture that these men have not just perpetrated but live in and supportedthat hasnt happened very often over the last year among people who have been accuse. And the ones who start to do that are going to be ones who rehabilitate themselves quickest. During her interview, Gyllenhaal said that she and the show other producers take accusations against Francowhich include pressuring actresses into more nudity than they initially agreed to and, during separate shoot, allegedly removing plastic guards covering actresses ' vaginas during simulated oral sexvery seriously, learning as much about accusations as they could. All of us felt that it was important to talk to people who were on our crew and in our cast, and make sure they felt that they had been treated with total respect and felt safe, Gyllenhaal say. I think about our show in particular: it is about misogyny; it is about inequality in terms of gender in the entertainment business. It is about subtleties of transactional sex. And I felt that it would have been a terrible shame to stop telling that story. I had so much more to say about all of these things by playing Candy, and I know that Emily, who plays Lori, and Dominique, who plays Darlene, and Jamie, who plays Dorothy, also had feminist interest in continuing this story. But as some critics, including VF's Sonia Saraiya, have point out, decision to keep Franco does, in some ways, undermine some of the shows ' most deeply held messages about abuse of power. When asked if she could understand that line of thinking, Gyllenhaal admitted that she is probably not the most objective voice on the subject. I am not the right person to talk about that except to say that neither of Jamess characters on the show are heroes, Gyllenhaal say.
