Five women have come forward blaming James Franco for sexually inappropriate behavior. The Golden Globe-winner maintains these reports are “not accurate,” but says he'll "make restitution" as needed. As we told you before, Violet Paley and Sarah Tither-Kaplan, have already spoken out.
But now, Hilary Dusome and Natalie Chmiel say Franco became angry during a strip club shoot when none of the women would agree to go topless. An another student, Katie Ryan, tells the "Los Angeles Times" that the actor “would always make everybody think there were possible roles on the table if we were to perform sexual acts or take off our shirts.”
Elaborating on her initial claims, Tither-Kaplan (a former student at Franco’s Studio 4 film school) claims that the actor removed plastic protective guards that covered actresses’ vaginas while he simulated oral sex during a scene for his 2015 film, “The Long Home.” Franco’s attorney has denied this claim.
Speaking of denials, Franco has made a number of TV appearances this week - and his message has been the same: the claims are inaccurate, but accusers should be heard.
