Five women are coming forward to the "Los Angeles Times" citing inappropriate behavior and sexual misconduct from actor James Franco. The accusers include actress Violet Paley and Franco's former acting student, Sarah Tither-Kaplan, both who brought attention to the actor on Twitter after his recent Golden Globes win. The three others are also former students.
Some of the victims say they felt pressured to perform nude in several of his projects, believing Franco could offer them career advancement. Others say that Franco became upset when no women agreed to be topless during a shoot. Franco and his attorney have repeatedly denied the allegations.
