Women Accuse James Franco Of Inappropriate Sexual Behavior

Women Accuse James Franco Of Inappropriate Sexual Behavior

Amid sexual misconduct allegations, actor and filmmaker James Franco chose to skip the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards where he won the Best Actor honour for his role in The Disaster Artist.

James Franco is being accused by five women of being inappropriate or sexually exploitative - and he's reportedly "hiding" from the fallout. Four of the accusers are Francos former acting students.

Franco denied the allegations while appearing on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" Tuesday.

This is unedited, unformatted feed from the Press Trust of India wire. "I have my own side of this story but I believe that these people have been under-represented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say just because I believe in that so much", said Franco to Meyers.

The New York Times also cancelled a speaking event with Franco in the wake of Tither-Kaplan and Paley's allegations against the actor. The actor added that if he has "done something wrong", he will "fix it". But I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn't have a voice for so long. In 2014, he used Instagram to ask a 17-year-old British girl he'd met outside a NY theater if she had a boyfriend and whether she was 18.

The LA Times also spoke to Tither-Kaplan, who expanded on tweets she made claiming Franco had pressured her into doing nude scenes, saying that the power imbalance between them made her feel unable to say no.

Actress Katie Ryan, who took some lessons at Franco's acting studio, Studio 4, said the actor "would always make everybody think there were possible roles on the table if we were to perform sexual acts or take off our shirts" in his projects.

Franco said no by shaking his head, the actor said, "I had a great relationship with her". Three women who studied at a film school Franco founded said he had acted inappropriately on set, including becoming angry when they did not want to take off their tops and removing plastic guards covering women's genitals in a sex scene.

Paley claimed after beginning a romantic relationship with the Golden Globe victor, he pressured her into performing oral sex on him while they were sitting in a vehicle. At this Franco says that he is proud of what he had done in past. "David Harbour won best supporting actor in a drama series for 'Stranger Things".

HBO said that it has reached out to key players on the show during its first season and found no instances of complaints or questionable behavior by Franco, and that there has been no change to his status on the show for Season 2, which begins production later this year. After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old? On "Live with Kelly and Michael", Franco said, "I'm embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky".
