Two other women recalled being subjected to bad on-set experiences. "If I've done something wrong, I will fix it". She's received a barrage of criticism on social media, including death threats.

In 2014, after Franco admitted to trying to approach a 17-year-old and get a hotel room where she was staying even after having learned her age, told his Instagram followers that he hoped parents would keep their teens away from him.

Franco has addressed the accusations on the late-night circuit. Denials are hard to believe, insinuate that a woman has lied and often come back to bite the men issuing them. 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 other former students told the paper about a strip club scene that both considered unprofessional.

For better or worse, it's on Franco to shift how he acts and "supports" young aspiring actresses.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan, Violet Paley, Hilary Dusome, Natalie Chmiel and Katie Ryan are some of the women making allegations against James Franco. His attorney and spokesperson did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment.

Some students did appear in Rabbit Bandini productions. One of the projects was a docu-series that went behind the scenes of Franco's Sex Scenes master class, which taught students about the art of being intimate on camera. She began laughing nervously, she said, and offered to meet up with him later - not in a auto, not in public. She took the tweet down.

Some may find Tither-Kaplan's allegations extremely disturbing. I don't know, I really don't. "I'm completely willing and want to".


Franco continues to deny the allegations against him. She is part of our camp! In April of that year, Paley visited Franco on a student film set of an adaptation of William Faulkner's "A Rose for Emily", Paley's favorite short story.

And Tither-Kaplan has made a further claim.

She said that during the filming of that scene, Franco removed clear plastic guards over actors' genitals as he simulated oral sex. Said too much." She added, "James Franco just won. Another actress confirmed this account in the report.

Franco said no by shaking his head, the actor said, "I had a great relationship with her". "There was a culture of exploiting non-celebrity women", she said.

The actor has however continued to claim that he is innocent of all accusations against him.

"I'm fine most of the time, but sometimes I'm regretful and wish I hadn't said anything".

"So I don't want to, you know, shut them down in any way". She also used #MeToo after spotting Franco and Christian Slater at a table. To extricate herself from the situation, she told Franco she spotted someone near the auto.

"When all this Harvey Weinstein stuff came out, I realized that - I mean James did not rape me, but what he did was an abuse of his power to me personally", she said.
