As it was written in Los Angeles Times magazine, five women have already accused the well-known actor, James Franco, of harassment.
But how did it happen? And is this true? Let’s find out!
As it became widely known, four actresses have already told the magazine that James Franco asked them to appear in somehow coercive scenes.
That time these girls were
taking acting classes from James. And as they say, he was asking them to get
their clothes off and play really sensitive contents.
Some of these actresses wrote
on their Twitter accounts that this kind of harassment from James was like a
slap in the face.
Hey James Franco, nice #timesup pin at the #GoldenGlobes , remember a few weeks ago when you told me the full nudity you had me do in two of your movies for $100/day wasn't exploitative because I signed a contract to do it? Times up on that!— Sarah Tither-Kaplan???? (@sarahtk) 8 января 2018 г.
However, when the journalists
asked James if these rumors and tweets were true, he denied it and told the
press that these actresses’ words are not quite accurate. Franco also added
that though these tweets are untrue, he’s glad that these girls could be brave
enough to write something like this.
Cute #TIMESUP pin James Franco. Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17? After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?— Violet Paley (@VioletPaley) 8 января 2018 г.
Because of these accusations, the live show with Franco was canceled.
But these four girls weren’t alone in their yearning for justice. In one of the interviews to Los Angeles Times, the well-known filmmaker, Violet Paley, told that the actor made her give him an oral pleasure.
As it was known, these two had kind of relationship,
which had never involved this kind of love-making.
What about the actresses who accused Franco of being clearly unprofessional? As it turned out, their names are Hilary Dusome and Natalie Chmiel.
These two girls told the press that when
Franco had found out they weren’t going to undress he just made them leave the
show. They also added that they were afraid of telling the truth because of the
actor’s influence in this industry.
The other girl, whose name is Katie Ryan, said that James was sure that any actress can be successful if she plays such roles and is able to undress whenever he asks her to.
But as it was said, James
declined all of these accusations, telling that they are not accurate enough.
Though we don’t know who’s in the right and who’s in fault, we can only hope
that this situation gets better as soon as possible.
