Women Accuse James Franco off Sexual Misconduct

13 January, 2018, 13:33 | Author: Cecil Buchanan
  • James Franco has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women following his win at the Golden Globe Awards

Tither-Kaplan also alleged that Franco had removed vaginal guards while filming oral sex scenes, which the Times confirmed with another actress present.

Franco's appearance came hours after The New York Times cancelled a public event scheduled Wednesday that was meant to feature "The Disaster Artist" director and star and his brother and co-star, Dave Franco, discussing the film with a Times reporter. One actress who refused to appear topless in a separate unscripted scene was allegedly sent home the following day. Aspiring filmmaker Violet Paley also alleged an incident in which Franco, who she was in a romantic relationship with at the time, pressured her into performing oral sex in a vehicle. On Wednesday night's Late Night With Seth Meyers, Franco, 39, said tweets by Paley and Tither-Kaplan were "not accurate" but supported them for speaking out. A lawyer for Franco didn't respond to queries on Thursday.

Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, told The LA Times that he disputed all the women's allegations in the article.

For actor and filmmaker James Franco, Sunday's Golden Globes victory for his performance in "The Disaster Artist" was meant to propel him into Hollywood's annual awards season with a shot at an Oscar nomination this month. "There are people that need to be heard". But I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn't have a voice for so long. She's since deleted the tweets from her Twitter account, but one of them read: "James Franco just won".

Donald Trump's enmity for Haiti
In a statement late Thursday, the White House did not dispute the vulgar language reportedly used by Trump during the meeting. You the closest thing I've seen to the devil in the flesh than I've ever seen and I promise you this.


Franco has denied any and all allegations against him. "She took the tweet down, I don't know, I really don't". But Franco said to Meyers that above all, he believes in this movement and doesn't plan to "actively refute" the claims against him. Some of the scenarios behind Franco's art films, which some of his students participated in, were described as unprofessional. I have total respect for her. She is part of our camp!

"James couldn't be here, so we accept this on his behalf", said presenter Walter Goggins on stage after Franco won. "I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out", said Paley. "I did not receive any complaints".

Franco was also apparently found to be messaging a teenager on Instagram and pursued her even after finding out she was 17. Afterward Franco said he was "embarrassed" and said social media is "tricky". They said he took advantage of his fame and position as the head of an acting school to put women in positions that left them feeling uncomfortable.
