James Franco Accused Of 'Sexually Inappropriate And Exploitative Behavior' By Five Women

But, Tither-Kaplan also said that when the Harvey Weinstein story first broke a year ago, that Franco did formally apologize to her for making her feel uncomfortable. "So I support that".

Five women have come forward accusing James Franco of sexually inappropriate behaviour, following an appearance on USA television in which he declared accusations made against him on Twitter were "not accurate". On Meyers's show, however, the actor said he was sent a couple of the tweets: "So yeah, I did read them". "I would say, 'No, stop, get out of my auto, '" she told the Times.

In 2014, Instagram messages showed Franco apparently trying to hit on a 17-year-old Scottish fan.

"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", Sarah Tither-Kaplan, a 26-year-old actress and filmmaker who has appeared in movies directed by Franco, told The Times. "Times up on that!"

The night of the Globes, in which Franco won best actor in a comedy or musical for "The Disaster Artist", three actresses tweeted accusations of sexual misconduct. "Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business".

"Why is a man hosting?"

Although more than a dozen students have vouched for Franco's acting school, named Studio 4, enough performers have expressed dissatisfaction with James' teaching method. "Said too much. Nite love ya", Sheedy wrote. "I personally checked on all the actresses constantly to make sure they were ok and comfortable. I didn't have agency representation at the time, so I thought, 'Well, I'm not going to be able to get into good auditions, so this might be my opportunity'".

Franco went on to say that he had "no idea" what Sheedy's tweets were in reference to but vowed to "fix it" if he had done "something wrong".

In reference to his own situation, Franco said, "The way I live my life, I can't live if there's restitution to be made".

Alex Holmes, CEO of MoneyGram said: "Every day blockchain technology is changing the norm and encouraging innovation". To put things into perspective, MoneyGram transfered over $600 Billion in cross-border payments in 2016.

Franco replied, "It was just so shocking, I don't know". I have to. I mean, I think that's how that works. "I don't know. I really don't".

James Franco has been accused of sexually inappropriate or exploitative behavior by five women in the Los Angeles Times this morning.

Tither-Kaplan told the Times that Franco's behavior constituted an "abuse of power". Four of the women were his students and another said he was her mentor.

"I felt like I was selected for something based on my hard work and my merit, and when I realized it was because I have nice [breasts], it was pretty clear that was not the case". Another recalled filming a scene in which Franco allegedly asked female actresses to remove their shirts-and grew visibly angry when none complied. Franco's attorney disputes all the women's accusations.

CNN has not confirmed the women's accounts.

Franco's publicist did not provide any additional statement from the actor when contacted by the Press Association. Not to mention, Rabbit Bandini co-owner Vince Jolivette defended that Studio 4 "was always run professionally".

"I'm embarrassed and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky", Franco said at the time.

"There are stories that need to get out, people that need to be heard". "I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson", the actor said then.
