5 Women Accuse James Franco Of Sexual Misconduct

The women say in a newspaper article that the actor exploited his power over them.

Five women have spoken out in an explosive new Los Angeles Times article accusing actor James Franco of sexual misconduct.

Some of the women had tweeted in protest on Sunday night, when Franco, sporting a ‘Times Up’ pin, won a Golden Globe for his latest film ‘The Disaster Artist’.

 Franco, asked about the tweets by Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, denied any wrongdoing.

“Look, in my life I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I have done,” he said. “I have to do that to maintain my well being. The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate. But I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long. So I don’t want to shut them down in any way.”

“If I have done something wrong,” he continued, “I will fix it — I have to.”
