James Franco Discussed His Sexual Misconduct Allegations With Seth Meyers

"If I have to take a knock because I am not going to try and actively refute things then I will because I believe in that much" the actor told Meyers

James Franco is hesitant to hit back at the women accusing him of sexual misconduct because he believes in the Time's Up movement and doesn't want to silence anyone who feels the need to tell their story.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan, a former student and actress in Franco's unreleased film The Long Home, told the Times that Franco removed plastic protection on actresses' vaginas while simulating oral sex during a group sex scene shot for the film, and claims that he continued to simulate the act afterwards.

Franco, like hundreds of other Hollywood elite, wore a "Time's Up" button in solidarity to protest industry sexual misconduct, but some say he shouldn't have had it on.

Actor/director James Franco attended the Golden Globes this week and has since come under fire for his behaviour in the past. "Please never ask me why I left the film/TV business", according to the Independent. The actor said he believes women's claims deserve to be heard and that he would not "actively refute" the allegations against him.

The new series is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano and Ant Ward and voice-directed by veteran voice actor Rob Paulsen. The series is produced by ITV Entertainment and Hard Nocks South, based on a United Kingdom format from Possessed.

"There were some things on Twitter, I havent read them".

"I truly believe, and why I was wearing the pin, is that they [women and others] need to be part of this conversation", Franco said of why he wore a Time's Up pin to the Golden Globes. "I personally checked on all the actresses constantly to make sure they were ok and comfortable". "I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out", said Paley.

"Look, in my life I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I have done", Franco said, before denying accounts of his behavior.

Four of the women were his acting students, and the fifth said he was her mentor.

Donaldson, Bryant set contract records at arbitration deadline
Bryant has 94 home runs in his first three seasons in the big leagues to go with a.288 batting average and.388 on-base percentage. Bryant's teammates Addison Russell agreed on Friday to terms to play this season and will receive a $3.2 million contract.

Franco also taught a "sex scene" class at Studio 4, which resulted in some of the students work being loaded onto Vimeo. Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, denied the claims.

"I'm here to listen and learn and change my perspective where it's off, and I'm completely willing and want to".

James Franco told Seth Meyers he's "letting it be" when the talk show host questioned why he hadn't reached out to former co-star Ally Sheedy about her cryptic tweets. I directed her in a play off-Broadway. "He is really hurt because he didn't know that we would be in a place where giving someone a voice would be giving someone a license to speak without any accountability".

The star said the earlier allegations made on Twitter were "not accurate". I mean, we know that when women are empowered in the workplace and are in decision-making positions that workplaces have better financial outcomes and there's less harassment when there is more diversity.
