A fourth woman, aspiring filmmaker Violet Paley, met Franco in early 2016. The actress agreed to appear fully nude in the background of the scene, but she says she observed Franco allegedly remove clear plastic guards that covered actresses' vaginas "to simulate the sex act with no protection".

"Her feelings shifted after being selected to appear, with a handful of other female students, in what she thought was one of Franco's 'art films.' Natalie Chmiel, the other student, said she was told the footage would be used in a 7 For All Mankind jeans commercial".

However, Tither-Kaplan revealed she found it galling to see Franco support the campaign, as she has accused the 39-year-old actor of abusing his power as the head of Studio 4, the comedy and improv school that he abruptly closed in October last year. When no one agreed, Franco stormed off the set.
