The actor was however not present to receive the award he had won for his role in the "Disaster Artist'". The pin is part of a movement in response to #MeToo. Claiming that Franco cultivated an environment ripe for abuse, Tither-Kaplan added that his demeanor made novice actresses like herself feel vulnerable.

Studio 4 closed suddenly last fall.

Despite the denial from his attorney, additional allegations from filmmaker and actor Sarah Tither-Kaplan as well as three of Franco's former students from Playhouse West have been revealed. In it, Tither-Kaplan appeared fully nude in the background, she said.

In 2015, she said she was offered the role of a prostitute in the film "The Long Home" and was asked to film an orgy scene.


Violet Paley also alledges that Franco forced her to perform a sex act on him when she was clearly uncomfortable. Two women said Franco became angry shooting a strip club scene when no actresses, who were masked, would go topless. "He just took advantage of our eagerness to work and be a part of something bigger", Chmiel said.

Kidman thanked the entertainment community "who show up to make really fantastic films and TV and let us do what we love". Four of the accusers are Franco's former acting students. One said she felt pressured into a sexual act while the two had already begun a relationship.

She alleged that while they were sitting in her vehicle, Franco pressured her to perform oral sex on him.

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


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

"I am still reading it the same as everyone else, trying to discern what is or isn't there", Simon said in a statement sent to the Sun by HBO on Thursday. "There are people that need to be heard". I feel terrible that anyone was made to feel uncomfortable but we went to great lengths to make sure all the actresses in the nude scenes felt comfortable and safe. The actor added that if he has "done something wrong", he will "fix it".

On Wednesday, Franco comes for an interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Paley tweeted to her 3,592 followers after the Golden Globes: "Cute #TIMESUP pin James Franco".


HBO is taking a wait-and-see approach amid the swirl of allegations about inappropriate behavior leveled against James Franco, a star and producer on the cabler's drama series "The Deuce". She took the tweet down, I don't know. "Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business". I wonder if you have read those tweets, and if so, how you respond to them? Joined by actress Niecey Nash, they raised a glass "to all the good guys in Hollywood", who held meetings in conference rooms rather than hotel rooms.
