James Franco Accused of 'Sexually Exploitative Behavior' by Multiple Women

James Franco Accused of 'Sexually Exploitative Behavior' by Multiple Women

Five women have come forward accusing James Franco of sexually inappropriate behaviour, following an appearance on USA television in which he declared accusations made against him on Twitter were "not accurate".

Hilary Dusome, 33, said Franco approached the group of actresses and asked, "So, who wants to take your shirt off?".

When no one volunteered, Franco stormed off the set.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan alleged that Franco enlisted her to do full nudity in two of his films for $100 a day, telling her it "wasn't exploitative". The actress agreed to appear fully nude in the background of the scene, but she says she observed Franco allegedly remove clear plastic guards that covered actresses' vaginas "to simulate the sex act with no protection".

"In my life, I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I've done", he said. I have to do that to maintain my well-being.

"I truly believe, and why I was wearing the pin, is that they [women and others] need to be part of this conversation", Franco said of why he wore a Time's Up pin to the Golden Globes. I want to talk about The Disaster Artist, which I loved, and want to get to the Golden Globes, but one of the things that happened at the Golden Globes - and obviously, this happened in the last couple of days before we had you booked on the show and I'm glad you're still here.

He added, "Like I said, you know, there are stories that need to get out. I have to", he said without elaborating.

The Los Angeles Times also spoke to Violet Paley, who took to Twitter with her own allegation of sexual misconduct against Franco.

A fifth woman, Violet Paley, who had previously spoke out against him on Twitter, said that she met Franco in early 2016 and began a consensual sexual relationship with him that turned into him pressuring her to perform oral sex on him while sitting in a vehicle. "So I support them".

Two other students said Franco would often become angry on set when they would refuse to film topless.

"I had a great relationship with her", Franco told Meyers of his stance on the matter and why he hasn't reached out.

"I feel disgusting that anyone was made to feel uncomfortable but we went to great lengths to make sure all the actresses in the nude scenes felt comfortable and safe".

"I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out". Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, claims videos were not uploaded to Vimeo by the school, but the LA Times quotes an email sent to Tither-Kaplan which reads, "just wanted to let [them] know the films are now up on the Studio 4 Vimeo Channel". I think the point of this whole thing is that we listen.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, a spokesperson for the newspaper said it was "no longer comfortable proceeding. given the controversy surrounding recent allegations". In some cases, they said they believed Franco could offer them career advancement, and acquiesced to his wishes even when they were uncomfortable and felt like he was abusing his power.
