James Franco To Seth Meyers: He'll Take Knocks Over Sexual Misconduct Tweets

HBO defends The Deuce actor James Franco after sexual harassment allegations

Sarah Tither-Kaplan, a former student and actress in Franco's unreleased film The Long Home, told the Times that Franco removed plastic protection on actresses' vaginas while simulating oral sex during a group sex scene shot for the film, and claims that he continued to simulate the act afterwards.

On Wednesday night's Late Night With Seth Meyers, Franco said the tweets by Paley and Tither-Kaplan were "not accurate" but he supported the women's right to express their perspectives.

Paley, who was not one of Franco's former students, told the Times she began a romantic relationship with Franco in early 2016 after he said he would help her with a script she had written.

Violet Paley, who also posted a tweet about Franco on Sunday, said that she and Franco initially had a consensual relationship but Franco pulled out his penis while they were in her auto and pressured her to give him oral sex.

"The Deuce" star has been answering allegations after his appearance at the Golden Globes Sunday stirred some women to criticize him via Twitter for wearing a Time's Up pin in support of the organization created to combat sexual harassment.

Today the Los Angeles Times published a piece which offers a lot more detail on accusations of "inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior" made against Franco by five women. Instead, Franco has gone on to address the accusations saying that he believes in the Time's Up movement, but that he finds some of the accusations to be untrue. He told Meyers, "The [tweets] I read were not accurate".

"I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out", Paley said. His attorney did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment.

"I do it whenever I know that there is something wrong or needs to be changed". "And if I have to take a knock because I'm not gonna, you know, try and, you know, actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much".




Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, disputed the women's allegations to The Times.

"I feel there was an abuse of power", she tells the paper.

Following the claims made against Franco, the New York Times canceled an event featuring the actor that had been scheduled for yesterday. Franco stressed that listening to those who come forward is important - even if he denied these specific claims against him.

An HBO spokesperson told BuzzFeed News they have received no complaints about Franco's behavior on the set of The Deuce. "I'm completely willing and want to". "It's a good thing and I support it".

James has previously come under fire for allegedly trying to pick up a 17-year-old girl on Instagram on 2014, enticing her to meet him in a hotel room. I don't know what else, I don't know what else to do.

Franco said he has not talked to Sheedy about the tweets.

Just the other day, I did a recap of the Golden Globes titled Streep - Mariah's A Bitch, Franco StiffArms Wiseau, Gayle?: The Globes were a hot mess as usual.

"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?" "I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson".
