James Franco's Accusers Open Up About Allegations

James Franco now accused of sexual misconduct by five women James Franco

Tither-Kaplan, one of five women who, in interviews with The Times, accused Franco, 39, of behavior they found to be inappropriate or sexually exploitative, was talking about the Time's Up pin Franco was wearing on the night of the Golden Globes.

The part required her to perform nude, and Tither-Kaplan signed nudity agreements for her scenes, but claimed that she became increasingly uncomfortable after the plastic guards were allegedly removed during the orgy scenes, leading her to regret performing in the film at all.

Two other students, Hilary Dusome and Natalie Chmiel, both 33, also told the Los Angeles Times yesterday Franco got "visibly angry" when they refused to go topless during a commercial. A Studio 4 student, Katie Ryan, said that Franco emailed asking for audition material for a "prostitute or hooker" role on multiple occasions, and said that he "would always make everybody think there were possible roles on the table if we were to perform sexual acts or take off our shirts".

Paley said she met The Disaster Artist star in 2016 and was having a romantic relationship with him when he pressured her into performing oral sex on him while sitting in her vehicle.

On Late Night, Franco emphasized his support for the movement toward accountability in Hollywood, repeating that he didn't want to detract from the women's stories while simultaneously and paradoxically claiming that they were not true-without offering any specific rebuttals.

Well, that's good news for Franco - but just because there isn't official documentation doesn't mean the inappropriate behavior didn't happen.

"There were some things on Twitter - yeah, I haven't read them", he continued. Actress Ally Sheedy also said in a since-deleted tweet that Franco was an example of why she left the movie business. When the LA Times reached out to Franco's lawyer for comment on its story, the publication was directed to his comments to Colbert. So if I've done something wrong, I will fix it. If you missed it, Sunday Franco was accused of sexual misconduct on Twitter by several women but later told Colbert the accusations about him were not accurate.

Afterwards, Franco said he was "embarrassed" and said social media is "tricky".

"If I have to take a knock because I'm not going to try to actively refute things, then I will because I believe in it that much", he concluded. He said that he had a great time working with her and has total respect for the actress.

Franco started a film school, Studio 4, in 2014, and Franco worked with students on film projects, according to the report. Franco stressed that listening to those who come forward is important - even if he denied these specific claims against him.

Franco, through his representatives, denied all allegations, calling them "inaccurate", including the characterizations of his acting school. Said too much." She later tweeted, "James Franco just won. Clode was 17-years-old after when the actor propositioned her, after attending a Franco-starring performance of Of Mice and Men.

He has said that although he disputes the claims, he supports the idea that women and other groups should be able to speak out. "It's a way that people meet each other today, but what I've learned - I guess because I'm new to it - is you don't know who's on the other end". [MUSIC] There are incredible voices, and I support it. I'm here to listen and learn and change my perspective where it's off.
