James Franco Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Several Women Following Golden Globes Win

James Franco Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Several Women Following Golden Globes Win
Not long after winning a Golden Globe for Best Actor for his performance in The Disaster Artist, James Franco is now facing allegations of sexual misconduct from three women.

Please note that the accusations include graphic details. 

In the wake of his Golden Globe win, actress Violet Paley accused Franco, 39, of pushing her head down towards his exposed penis while in a car together, in addition to allegedly luring her 17-year-old friend to his hotel room.

Paley added that the former accusation did take place while she was of adult age, though it took place against her will. She clarified that the latter accusation is different from the 2014 incident in which Franco allegedly attempted to engage with 17-year-old Lucy Clode, inviting her to his hotel room.

Today, Paley tweeted that Franco "offered me & a few other girls an overdue, annoyed, convenient phone 'apology,'" adding, "I don't accept, but maybe some other people's lives would be made easier if he donated all of his earnings from 'The Disaster Artist' to [RAINN, an American anti-sexual violence organization]."

A second accuser, Sarah Tither-Kaplan, alleged that the actor had her do full nudity in two of his films for $100 per day, telling her that it "wasn't exploitative." Plenty of Twitter users piled on to chastise her for taking the contract, though she explained saying no isn't always a financially viable option.

The third accuser was Breakfast Club actor Ally Sheedy, who starred in the Franco-directed play The Long Shrift in 2014.

In a now-deleted series of tweets, Sheedy remarked that "James Franco just won. Please never ever ask me why I left the film/tv business," later tweeting, "Why is a man hosting? Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much."

None of the accusations have been proven in court, and no charges have been laid against against Franco. He has yet to comment publicly on the new accusations.
