Hollywood star James Franco accused of sexual misconduct

Hollywood star James Franco accused of sexual misconduct

On Sunday, he won a Best Actor Golden Globe for his portrayal of Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist, which he also directed.

The allegations first surfaced when Franco won his maiden Golden Globe for The Disaster Artist where, like many other stars in Hollywood, he showed up wearing the "Time's Up" pin.

During the awards ceremony, he wore a pin expressing his support for "Time's Up", a movement against sexual harassment.

Five women said actor and filmmaker James Franco had acted in a sexually inappropriate way toward them, adding to earlier accusations on social media.

When the host asked Franco for clarification, the 39-year-old actor denied all the allegations made against him by his former co-star.

The move prompted several women to turn to Twitter to accuse Franco of sexual misconduct. "Times up on that!", said Sarah on her twitter account.

JAMES Franco is being told "Time's Up" by five women who have accused him of sexual misconduct in a bombshell report from the Los Angeles Times, four of whom were his students.

Hilary Dusome and Natalie Chmiel told the paper that when Franco approached them to film some scenes, he told the aspiring actors that the footage would be used in a 7 For All Mankind commercial.

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

One of Franco's original accusers on Twitter, actress Violet Paley, said that during a relationship, he pressured her to perform oral sex in a auto. "So I don't want to shut them down in any way". As far as the bigger issue of how we do it, I really don't have the answers.

Paley said she told Franco that someone had spotted them in her vehicle in order to stop the act.

Meyers also grilled Franco on now-deleted tweets from actress Ally Sheedy, which appeared to imply misconduct on Franco's part. "I do it whenever I know that there's something wrong that needs to be changed, I make it a point to do it". Franco, who was 35, asked her number of questions-including her a request for a photo, her relationship status and the name of her hotel- that suggested he was looking for a sexual relationship.

Another Franco attorney said she had received no complaints during the movie filming.

The attorney provided the newspaper with a statement from the film's casting director, Cynthia Huffman, who said she did not receive any complaints from actors and that she "personally checked on all the actresses constantly to make sure they were ok and comfortable". "I feel terrible 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". One of the accusers, a woman named Violet Paley, is taking heavy criticism for a tweet she wrote in September, in which she claimed to plot ways to ruin people's lives.

The admittance of a consensual relationship has prompted some to disbelieve her and like Sarah Tither-Kaplan, responded in a negative manner. "In my position, not only do I have to go through the embarrassing rituals of meeting someone, but sometimes it gets published for the world", he said.
