According to the Los Angeles Times, five women have come forward to accuse James Franco of inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior. The paper published the details of the alleged encounters on Thursday. It has been just days since the Golden Globe winner denied previous claims of sexual misconduct.
A former acting student at Franco’s film school Studio 4 in Hollywood, told the newspaper that the 39-year-old actor asked her to play a prostitute in his yet-to-be-released film The Long Home. She claims that she and several other women filmed a scene in which they participated in an orgy with Franco’s character. She says he removed a clear plastic guard that covered the other women’s vaginas and simulated oral sex without protection.
