5 women reportedly accuse James Franco of sexual misconduct

5 women reportedly accuse James Franco of sexual misconduct

Four of the women who accuse Franco of inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior were students at Studio 4, the film school Franco founded; the fifth says Franco served as a mentor. She alleges that, during the shoot, Franco removed plastic guards from the women's genitals and then simulated sex acts.

"I feel there was an abuse of power, and there was a culture of exploiting non-celebrity women, and a culture of women being replaceable", Tither-Kaplan told the outlet.

In another claim, two student actresses say Franco stormed off a film set after no female actresses involved in a scene took up his suggestion to go topless.

One of the eager students said Franco, who she entered a romantic relationship with, pressured her into performing oral sex in a vehicle.

Camila Cabello Has A Five-Letter Word For Fifth Harmony's VMA Performance
The other members Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui and Normani Kordei weren't pleased about their bandmate's solo efforts. Sadly, Cabello said she would have like to stay with the band but it became impossible because she chose to follow her passion.

She told the Times that Franco pressured her into performing oral sex in a auto, and described the incident: "I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out".

"Hey James Franco, now that you have a Golden Globe why don't you give speaking roles that don't require nudity in your upcoming films to the dozens of women who have done full nudity + sex scenes in your indie films and art projects?" Franco said that the things he's heard about on Twitter are not accurate but he supports people coming out and having a voice. So, if I've done something wrong, I will fix it. "I don't want to shut them down in anyway".

It "was like a slap in my face", she told the paper.

The renewed scrutiny on Franco comes four years after he apparently sent a series of text messages, posted on the image-sharing website Imgur, in which he seemed to try to seduce a 17-year-old Scottish girl he had met outside a Broadway theater in NY. I talked to them several times and told them if they were uncomfortable or did not like what was going on to come to me immediately and I would take care of it.

Ricky Martin has Confirmed that He and His Partner are Married
We signed all the papers we needed, the prenuptial agreement and everything else, "he asserted. I have said in many interviews: "my wedding will last three days and everyone will find out".

Meanwhile, after allegations of sexual misconduct circulated on social media about James Franco, the actor told late-night host Stephen Colbert that the "the things I heard on Twitter are not accurate". When Meyers asked Franco if he had reached out to Sheedy-who obliquely accused Franco of bad behavior-the actor repeated, more or less, what he said on Late Show: "I had a great relationship with her".

It remains to be seen what effect these allegations will have on Franco's awards-season hopes - the 39-year-old actor is thought to be in the running for the best actor trophy at the Academy Awards, thanks to his starring performance in The Disaster Artist, which he also directed.

When contacted by CNN, a spokesperson for Franco pointed to the actor's comments on the late-night shows and provided statements from supporters. A common theme among the accusers' stories was the belief that Franco would help their careers if they agreed to his wishes. "I have my own side of this story, but I believe in. these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out, enough that I will. hold back things that I could say just because I believe in it that much". "I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson", the actor said then.
