Two other women, who have chosen to remain anonymous, claimed that the Spring Breakers actor would become furious when the female students whom he asked to remove their tops would refuse.

While chatting in the the vehicle, Franco surprised her by suddenly taking his penis out, she said, and putting her hand on it.

"I do it whenever I know that there is something wrong or needs to be changed". Franco stressed that listening to those who come forward is important - even if he denied these specific claims against him. After asking if she had a boyfriend and whether or not she was 18, Franco proceeded to ask her the name of her hotel and if she rented a room there, despite learning that she was under 18. Said too much." She added later, "James Franco just won. "So if I have to take a knock because I'm not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much". Recently reports of his film schools, his tactics, and the ongoings during the classes were quite different.

As James Franco faces allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior from multiple women, "The Deuce" co-creator and executive producer David Simon and HBO say they are unaware of any complaints about the actor-director's conduct on the period drama. As far as the bigger issues, how we do it, look - I really don't have the answers, and I think the point of this whole thing is that we listen. Luckily, it is not up to us to make that decision, but now it seems like a court of law may have to do so. [Two] women described what they considered to be an unprofessional and hostile shoot at a strip club.

"There were some things on Twitter, I haven't read them, I've heard about them", he said.

James Franco has dismissed claims of sexual harassment that were made against him following his best actor win at Sunday's Golden Globe awards. She says he emailed her frequently, offering her only roles as "a prostitute or a hooker".

Franco addressed the situation while appearing on "Live!" The class "taught students about the art of being intimate on camera", and through collaboration and consent, scene partners would produce and submit student film projects for it. She says the video was uploaded to Vimeo by the school and has since appeared on porn sites. Last year, she discovered images from the film on at least one pornography website.

"I felt so pressured...and he started pushing my head towards it", she said. "I don't know. I guess I'm just letting it be".

"So, I don't want to shut them down in anyway".

The TimesTalk event scheduled for Wednesday was meant to feature "The Disaster Artist" director and star and his brother and co-star, Dave Franco, discussing the film with a Times reporter. She is part of our camp! In fact, she signed nudity agreements for each of the films she made with Franco. Instead, he only wanted them there because they were pretty. She was not one of the women, but appeared fully nude in the background of the scene.

Tither-Kaplan told The Times that she found Franco's behavior to be inappropriate and exploitative. The allegations include that he continuously offered nude or partially nude parts to women, and that he removed protective coverings during a simulated sex scene. When another actress was unwilling to perform the dance scene, she was allegedly sent home the next day. "And I was laughing as my head was being pushed down, and he was like, 'You're amusing.' And I was like, 'I'm not being amusing'". Natalie Chmiel, the other student, said she was told the footage would be used in a 7 For All Mankind jeans commercial.

"I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out", she told the Times.

Another actress who criticized Franco last week says he demanded oral sex while sitting in her vehicle. She explained how she was able to stop the situation by claiming to see someone near their vehicle. Tither-Kaplan does say that Franco apologized to her a year ago after the Weinstein story became national news.

"He's done a lot of damage on me", she said.
