Franco says sex claims 'not accurate'

Last week, James Franco was handed the Golden Globe for Best Actor for portraying The Room auteur Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist. The pin, which said Time's Up, was a nod to the movement started in December by powerful women in Hollywood. The actor, who now stars on the drama series The Deuce (he also produces it and occasionally directs it), has recently been accused of inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior by five women. In no time, four other of his former students also went public with accusations of harassment and sexual exploitation.

Paley said the two also had a "consensual relationship" and that recently Franco has offered her and others "an overdue, annoyed, convenient phone 'apology, ' " which she says she does not accept.

"One of the things I've learned is that this is a conversation that obviously needs to be had", he said.

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.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan, explained a time when a "bonus" scene with Franco.

He said anyone seeking Franco's comments on the matter should refer to his recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Gadot said she is sharing the award "with all the women and men who stand for what's right, standing for those who can't stand or speak for themselves".

Brady's 13th win as a starter this season tied him with Brett Favre for the most by a starting quarterback at age 40 or older. By all measures, it was a successful one, as the team finished 13-3 with the number one seed heading into the playoffs.

Franco, on the other hand, is denying the allegations, which include claims that he took advantage of young women who attended the acting classes that he led in NY and Los Angeles, until recently.

Violet Paley also alledges that Franco forced her to perform a sex act on him when she was clearly uncomfortable.

At the time, she said she was struggling with substance abuse.

On Wednesday the actor denied engaging in sexual misconduct after several accusations surfaced on social media, while voicing his support for the many women coming forward with allegations of wrongdoing following the downfall of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The actor then pointed out that most of the things he heard on Twitter were inaccurate.

In 2015, Franco asked Tither-Kaplan to play a prostitute in another of his projects, the feature film "The Long Home", with a cast that included him, Josh Hutcherson, Courtney Love and Timothy Hutton. "I think it's a good thing and I support it". 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.
