The Los Angeles Times also spoke to Violet Paley, who took to Twitter with her own allegation of sexual misconduct against Franco.

The 39-year-old "Disaster Artist" star - who was blasted on Twitter for wearing a "Time's Up" pin to the Golden Globes on Sunday - tried to get ahead of the story last night on Seth Meyers, telling Meyers the accusations weren't accurate, but the conversation is an important one to have. One of Franco's accusers, Sarah Tither-Kaplan, told The Los Angeles Times that she was offended by it.

Golden Globe victor James Franco says accusations of sexual misconduct made against him on Twitter this week are "not accurate" but said in a TV interview that "if I've done something wrong, I will fix it". Franco's attorney Michael Plonsker has denied each of the women's allegations.

Tither-Kaplan, who went on to appear in several Franco productions, acknowledged the positive remarks - and said Franco later apologized for making her feel uncomfortable. The actor added that if he has "done something wrong", he will "fix it". The women who opened up to LA Times about the actor's behavior expressed their disappointment at his Golden Globe accolade. In 2014, he used Instagram to ask a 17-year-old British girl he'd met outside a NY theater if she had a boyfriend and whether she was 18. "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", she said. I mean it was powerful and there were incredible voices, and I support it.

"I just didn't want him to hate me, so I did it", she told the Times.

Gadot added: "In the past weeks and months we've been witnessing a movement in our industry and society and I want to share this award with all women and men who stand for what's right".

Tither-Kaplan told reporters that during a nude orgy scene she filmed with Franco, he removed the plastic guards covering several actresses' genitalia. "So if I have to take a knock because I'm not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much".

Responding to a request from BBC, Franco's public relations representatives from Slate-PR agency referred to comments made by Franco during an interview earlier this week with talk show host Stephen Colbert. Fellow student Katie Ryan claimed the Golden Globes victor would say they could get roles if they "perform sexual acts or take off our shirts". "Thank you for letting me do it all the way through to this age and beyond".
