"First of all I want to say, I wore [the Time's Up pin] because I do support it", Franco said. And I truly believe they need to be part of this conversation.

"I want to give him credit for at least being open to communicating with me", she said. So if I've done something wrong, I will fix it.

Hilary Dusome and Natalie Chmiel said that they were asked to participate in a "hostile" shoot in a strip club in which they were wearing lingerie and masks, and that when Franco asked who among the women actors would volunteer and none did, the actor left in a huff.

Right after winning the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Tommy Wiseau in the "The Disaster Artist", Franco's former acting student Sarah Tither-Kaplan took her anger to Twitter, telling the actor to stop taking advantage of young women like her.

The part required her to perform nude, and Tither-Kaplan signed nudity agreements for her scenes, but claimed that she became increasingly uncomfortable after the plastic guards were allegedly removed during the orgy scenes, leading her to regret performing in the film at all. Tither-Kaplan's accounts were confirmed by another actress in the film.

The attorney also denied Tither-Kaplan's claims that an actress who refused to dance topless around Franco in a scene was sent home the next day.

Paley, who had a romantic relationship with Franco in 2016, claims that the actor pressured her into performing oral sex on him while sitting in a auto.

"I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out", she said. "And I was nervous, but I was into it".

She said that for years, she received mass email requests from Franco to audition for roles playing "a prostitute or a hooker". When she got there, he got in the auto and directed her to drive to an alley parking lot. "Our instructors were excellent, student feedback was positive and this recent tweet from a former student is very inconsistent with the mission of the school and we are investigating this matter". She began laughing nervously, she said, and offered to meet up with him later - not in a vehicle, not in public. "I have to", he said without elaborating.

Violet Paley, a mentee of Franco's, claims that in early 2016 Franco coerced her into oral sex. "I guess I'm just letting it be". Five of Paley's friends confirmed to the paper that she had recounted this story to them. She also wrote, "Why is a man hosting?" You were wearing a time's up button like a lot of guys at the show and some women during your time on stage said that was hypocritical, they went to Twitter and said that it was hypocritical based on their experiences that they have had with you. I had nothing but a great time with her.

When Meyers asked Franco whether or not he has reached out to Sheedy about her claims he replied flatly: "She took the tweet down".

She said she had feelings for him, which made their relationship confusing in hindsight, but she said nothing could excuse what he did to her that night in her auto. "I can't go to the movies without seeing a trailer for something".

Franco's attorney called Paley's accusations "not accurate" to the LA Times.

Franco had launched the Studio 4 acting schools in Los Angeles and NY in 2014, but both schools were closed suddenly past year, the Times reported.

"Personally, I can only speak knowledgeably to The Deuce".
