The grandiose demonstration of the protest against sexual violence during the Golden Globe ceremony inspired even more women not to be afraid and openly talk about their experiences. Soon a wave of accusations hit the Hollywood actor – James Franco, who, incidentally, was present at the Golden Globe and even won the coveted award.
Five women at once filed charges against the actor, four of whom were students of the film school of Franco, and the fifth stated that James was her mentor. According to the victims, the winner of the “Golden Globe” behaved inappropriately both during classes and during filming, which often were frank.
The actor refutes everything, however, the facts testify against him.
Also Violet Paley admitted that Franco was trying to force her to oral sex, and seduce her underage girlfriend. Another student of the film school, Sarah Titer-Kaplan, also claimed that Franco made her undress on the set, as “this was required by the contract.”
After this event, Elli Shidi expressed indignation that the actor dared to attend the Golden Globe awarding ceremony on January 7, where the stars protested on the problem of sexual violence in Hollywood and the world.
However, the actor had his own answer to this. In the program The Late Show, Stephen Colbert, he rejected her statement and said that the accusations of him are untrue, and on the set, which Violet Paley told about, he does not remember. Franco also added that he really supports the movement “Time’s Up”, and the campaign #MeToo, the right to combat sexual harassment.
Franko’s attorney has already challenged all the charges; however, this information did not hide from the public. There are reasons to believe that the “Oscar”, which Franco forecasted this year, is now also in question.
