James Franco has been accused of sexual misconduct by five women and surprisingly the actor is tackling the rumors head on!
Franco sat down with Late Night host Seth Meyers following an onslaught of accusations each of the which, come from five women who attended Studio 4, Franco’s acting school.
His first accuser, Sarah Tither-Kaplan, a former student of Franco's says there was definite abuse of power, along with other inappropriate behaviors.
Hey James Franco, now that you have a Golden Globe why don't you give speaking roles that don't require nudity in your upcoming films to the dozens of women who have done full nudity + sex scenes in your indie films and art projects?— Sarah Tither-Kaplan🌈 (@sarahtk) January 8, 2018
Hey James Franco, nice #timesup pin at the #GoldenGlobes , remember a few weeks ago when you told me the full nudity you had me do in two of your movies for $100/day wasn't exploitative because I signed a contract to do it? Times up on that!— Sarah Tither-Kaplan🌈 (@sarahtk) January 8, 2018
Tither-Kaplan told the LA Times that she filmed a nude orgy scene with Franco three years ago, and that during the course of filming he removed the plastic guards covering several other actresses’ vaginas. “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,” she said.
