James Franco wins CCA trophy amid sexual misconduct claims

Here are all the allegations against James Franco Three Former Students Are Accusing James Franco of Sexual Misconduct

At Sunday's Golden Globes, The Disaster Artist star won for best actor in a comedy or musical for his portrayal of Tommy Wiseau and donned a Time's Up pin showing his support for the initiative devoted to addressing abuse of power and promoting racial and gender equality in the workplace.

During a scene in one of the Disaster Artist director's earlier films, where several of Franco's Studio 4 students were engaged in a staged, sexual encounter with their teacher, Tither-Kaplan accuses Franco of removing the protective plastic guards the actresses were wearing to cover their genitals.

Franco was asked to comment on the accusations in an appearance on Stephen Colbert's The Late Show on Tuesday. I do it whenever I know that there is something wrong or needs to be changed, I make it a point to do it. "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", said Tither-Kaplan, who was one of many women who took to Twitter to criticise Franco's Globes win and his "Time's Up" pin.

Franco said he supports the "Time's Up" movement against sexual harassment and for gender equality. Another student says that Franco takes out the safety guards for the oral sex scene on the set of "The Long Home" in 2015.

The pair then fell out of touch, but a week after the New York Times reported on multiple allegations of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein in October 2017, Paley emailed Franco to express her discomfort with what she said happened in the auto.

What do you think about the latest allegations against James Franco?

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. Once they parked, Paley said Franco pressured her to perform oral sex on him.

"James is all about giving up-and-comers, actors and actresses and young filmmakers a break in this business", Ms Huffman said in the statement.

The 23-year-old is now facing backlash for an old tweet she wrote that read: "I like planning ways to ruin someone's life the moment I meet them". "And I was nervous, but I was into it". One called him her mentor. I directed her in a play off-Broadway.

Officials did not provide any further information on the girl's condition or if any of her family members had been trapped. Santa Barbara County spokeswoman Amber Anderson said Wednesday two dozen people remained missing.

"You're not curious enough to reach out to her, as someone that you've had a good relationship with before to try to understand why she would have done that?" he asked, to which James replied: "I don't know, it was just so shocking, I don't know". She began laughing nervously, she said, and offered to meet up with him later - not in a auto, not in public.

"I felt like I was selected for something based on my hard work and my merit", Dusome said. "You asked us to do this man", Rogen said, laughing nervously. Paley said she later spoke to Franco by phone and he tried to make amends, but insisted he had not done "anything illegal". "I guess I'm just letting it be".

Two friends of Paley's confirmed to BuzzFeed News she gave the same account of what happened in the vehicle shortly afterward.

Tither-Kaplan said she actually heard from Franco following the breaking news of the Weinstein scandals.

She said she had feelings for him, which made their relationship confusing in hindsight, but she said nothing could excuse what he did to her that night in her vehicle.

"I want to give him credit for at least being open to communicating with me", she said.

"I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out". According to People, a source confirmed to them that Franco is "hiding out". A lawyer for Franco didn't respond to queries Thursday. The greatest gift I've gotten from all my experiences in the industry is a supportive network of female friends.

"Personally, I can only speak knowledgeably to The Deuce".
