James Franco now accused of sexual misconduct by five women

'This Is the Backlash to the #MeToo Movement'

Here's how the claims came about, why some women say he shouldn't be associated with the Time's Up anti-harassment movement, and what he's said in response.

And what did Franco say about these allegations? I do it whenever I know that there is something wrong or needs to be changed, I make it a point to do it. She's received a barrage of criticism on social media, including death threats.

ICYMI: The incident that Paley refers to in that first tweet happened in 2014, when Instagram messages showed Franco apparently trying to hit on a 17-year-old Scottish fan. Even after learning her age, he asked for the name of her hotel and if he should rent a room.

While chatting in the the auto, Franco surprised her by suddenly taking his penis out, she said, and putting her hand on it. She began to perform the act but quickly told Franco she saw someone near the auto in order to end the situation without a conflict. Denials are hard to believe, insinuate that a woman has lied and often come back to bite the men issuing them.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan, a former student at Franco's Studio 4 school in North Hollywood, also told the paper it "was like a slap in the face" seeing him wearing a "Time's Up" pin. [Two] women described what they considered to be an unprofessional and hostile shoot at a strip club.

"I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out", actress Violet Paley told the publication of an encounter with the actor. And I truly believe they need to be part of this conversation.

James Franco and Seth Rogen star in

Franco's representatives did not respond to requests for further comment on Wednesday.

Some students did appear in Rabbit Bandini productions. Hilary Dusome took a class from Franco in 2012. However now some have doubted her story in light of the tweet's discovery. Five women, including Paley and Tither-Kaplan, then shared troubling experiences with Franco in published early Thursday. "I felt that he was still not really taking accountability for the environment on the sets". "I'm completely willing, and I want to".

Tither-Kaplan did note that Franco apologised to her in late 2017 following the avalanche of allegations of sexual misconduct that plagued Harvey Weinstein. She is part of our camp!

Franco told Colbert on Tuesday night that "if there's restitution to be made, I will make it".

But one day on set in May 2015, a producer approached her and other women to ask if they wanted to film a "bonus scene" of an orgy. Four of the women who have accused Franco of sexual misconduct were his students, while another accuser claimed that he was her mentor. She alleged that in one scene where she appeared nude, Franco removed plastic guards while performing sexual acts on actresses (the LA Times did not confirm or deny whether this was a consensual act). Another actress confirmed this account in the report.

The 23-year-old is now facing backlash for an old tweet she wrote that read: "I like planning ways to ruin someone's life the moment I meet them". The new accusations detailed a "culture of exploiting non-celebrity women, and a culture of women being replaceable" to the film and TV actor, director and teacher. "I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson", the actor said then.
