Three Former Students Are Accusing James Franco of Sexual Misconduct

Violet Paley

James Franco has been accused of inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior by five women.

James Franco has been accused of sexual misconduct by five women, including former students at the actor-director's NY acting school. She said she once saw Franco remove protective plastic guards covering other actresses' vaginas while simulating oral sex for a scene. "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", she said.

Two other students at Studio 4 - Hilary Dusome, 33, and Natalie Chmiel, 33 - told The Times about unpleasant experiences on set with Franco, with both saying he became visibly furious when actresses did not agree to take their shirts off.

"He just took advantage of our eagerness to work and be a part of something bigger".

Violet Paley, 23, another actress who blasted Franco on Twitter after the Globes, told The Times that they had entered into a romantic relationship when he pressured her into performing oral sex on him in her vehicle.

Five women have made allegations against The Disaster Artist star, who won a Golden Globe for his performance, in an article by the Los Angeles Times. Franco said that the things he's heard about on Twitter are not accurate but he supports people coming out and having a voice. To get out of the situation, she says she told Franco she could see someone near the vehicle.

Through his attorney, Franco denied the allegations in the story. Per the L.A. Times, the actor didn't respond-but when the two spoke later on the phone, Paley said that while Franco said it was wrong to have a sexual relationship with someone recovering from substance abuse, he also believed he hadn't done "anything illegal" and added, "I'm a changed man".

Franco directed Sheedy in an off-Broadway play an said they'd alway had a good relationship.

"I feel awful 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". "After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?" "We were all these up-and-coming actors who were so hopeful". 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.

James Franco's attempt at an apology on Tuesday night's Late Night with Stephen Colbert fell flat for many fans.

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

In a statement provided by Franco's publicist, Robin Baum, Cynthia Huffman, casting director of "The Long Home" said Tither-Kaplan's description of the orgy scene was inaccurate. Afterward Franco said he was "embarrassed" and said social media is "tricky".

"There are stories that need to get out, people that need to be heard".

He said he had used "bad judgment" and had "learned my lesson".
