5 women accuse actor James Franco of sexual misconduct

James Franco Sexual Harassment

She added that during a sex scene filmed three years ago with Franco and several women, the actor removed plastic guards covering the actresses' genitalia while simulating oral sex. Four of them were Franco's students, while the other one was his mentee at the film school that the actor founded. Franco taught acting at North Hollywood's Playhouse West, and then opened up his own school, Studio 4, in Los Angeles and NY.

James Franco feels "hurt" after being accused of sexual misconduct by several women, while his friends are anxious about him as he has retreated from the public eye amid the scandal, which comes at the height of awards season.

Facing sexual abuse accusations from multiple women, the actor skipped the Critics' Choice Awards Thursday night, where he won a Best Actor accolade for his work in "The Disaster Artist". "Please never ask me why I left the film/TV business", according to the Independent. Though The Disaster Artist's Golden Globe victor wasn't asked about those allegations, he was asked by Meyers about tweets from Ally Sheedy and others alleging similar misbehavior. Franco has denied any wrongdoing and explained why he hasn't gone further to refute the claims against him. There were some things on Twitter.I haven't read them. "I think that it's a good thing and I support it". 'And I think that we've all behaved, at a certain level, unconsciously, and done things that were insensitive, inappropriate, without necessarily understanding that they were.

"I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out", Paley said.

"Look, in my life I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I have done", Franco said, before denying accounts of his behavior. Vince Jolivette, Franco's production partner at Rabbit Bandini Productions, which ran Studio 4, said the school "was always run professionally" and that he was investigating the matter. "Im here to listen and learn and change my perspective where its off. Im completely willing and want to".

"I cant live if theres restitution to be made". Franco's attorney called her allegations "not accurate".

In a teaser for the BBC show, which is due to air on Sunday, she addressed Franco's comments, giving him credit for his conduct.

The pair later engaged in a consensual sexual relationship, but in retrospect, she said, "The power dynamic was really off".

The actor said he had not responded personally to Sheedy, with whom he worked on a 2014 off-Broadway play. She told the LA Times that she had asked Franco "can we do this later?", but that "he was kind of nudging my head down, and I just didn't want him to hate me, so I did it".

"It was just so shocking, I don't know".
