Summary: ‘ This article has been updated to include Franco’s comments on “Late Night.” Five women have spoken out in an explosive new Los Angeles Times article accusing actor James Franco of sexual misconduct. Franco appeared Wednesday night on “Late Night With Seth Meyers,”, and again said the allegations on Twitter were “not accurate.” He added that he wouldn’t “actively refute” the women’s claims because “this is a oral conversation that obviously needs to be had.” He also repeated his support, for Time’s Up.

Another acting student, Katie Ryan, said Franco gave the impression that women could might possibly only advance in their careers “if we were to perform sexual acts, or take off of our shirts,” adding that Franco would send her, and other students audition requests, for roles as “a prostitute or a hooker.” The women described feeling exploited and said they’d been afraid to speak out because of Franco’s influence in Hollywood. Four actresses who were students in Franco’s acting classes and a filmmaker who deemed him a mentor say in the article published on Thursday that Franco asked them to perform sexually inappropriate and coercive scenes and described him “storming off” a movie set when women refused his demands to appear naked. Some of the women tweeted in protest against on Sunday night, when Franco, sporting a “Time’s Up” pin, won a Golden Globe, for his latest film “The Disaster Artist.” Hey James Franco, nice #timesup PIN number at the #GoldenGlobes , think back on a few in number weeks ago when you told me the completely full to capacity nudity you’d me do in two of your movies for $100/day was not exploitative because I signed a contract to do it?…Read The Full Article Here
