James Franco absent from Critics Choice Awards amid sexual misconduct allegations


He denies the claims.

The actor is the latest leading man of Hollywood to be caught up in the scandal.

"I am still reading it the same as everyone else, trying to discern what is or isn't there", Simon said in a statement sent to the Sun by HBO on Thursday. Here's a list of some of the people who have been accused.

Sheedy worked with Franco on an off-Broadway play in 2014, but Franco told Colbert that he had no idea what he did to Sheedy and had "nothing but a great time with her".

James Franco arrives at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California. "Remember the time you pushed my head down in a auto towards your exposed penis". He then went on, Tither-Kaplan says, to simulate sex with the women without the shields. "Times up on that!"

While several former students told the L.A. Times they had a positive experience with Franco, some told the paper stories of specific incidents they believed crossed the line. A lawyer for Franco didn't respond to queries Thursday. But one night, she alleged that she was in a vehicle with Franco and she felt compelled to perform oral sex on him because "the power dynamic was really off".

Sarah Tither-Kaplan, who was a student at Franco's acting school Studio 4, said that she was asked along with other actresses if she would consent to appearing in a scene featuring an orgy for an unreleased film titled The Long Home. To extricate herself from the situation, she told Franco she spotted someone near the vehicle. "I guess I'm just letting it be".

Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, denied each of the women's allegations.

Sheedy has since removed the tweets. I have total respect for her.

In his insistence that he had done nothing wrong, the actor told Seth Meyers during an interview that "The ones I read were not accurate, but one of the things that I've learned is that this is a conversation that obviously needs to be had". "I got it in my head pretty quickly that, OK, you don't say "no" to this guy", she said.

"I pride myself on taking responsibility for things I've done", he said, reiterating his position that the accounts were false.

Colbert followed up by asking if there was a way to have this discussion off social media. "We were all these up-and-coming actors who were so hopeful". I don't know, it was so shocking.

"I can't live if there's restitution to be made", he continued. I will make it. "I think it's a good thing and I support it". As far as the bigger issue of how we do it, I really don't have the answers.

The star said the earlier allegations made on Twitter were "not accurate". If you would like to talk to a counsellor about rape, sexual assault or domestic violence, give the people over at 1800 RESPECT a call on 1800 737 732.
