At the Golden Globes, Franco wore a Time's Up pin in support of the fight against sexual harassment.

The actor-director was a no-show at the event after five women publicly accused him of sexually inappropriate behaviour, The Los Angeles Times reported on Thursday.

Sources told Deadline that work on the sophomore run of the period drama continues as scheduled even after allegations of sexual misconduct against Franco surfaced. Natalie Chmiel, the other student, said she was told the footage would be used in a 7 For All Mankind jeans commercial.

After defending himself on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" this week against accusations of inappropriate behavior toward women, Golden Globe victor James Franco is now facing a report from the Los Angeles Times noting that five separate women have accused him of "exploitative" behavior. One of Franco's accusers, Sarah Tither-Kaplan, told The Los Angeles Times that she was offended by it.

Katie Ryan, another of Franco's former students, alleged that the actor "would always make everybody think there were possible roles on the table if we were to perform sexual acts or take off our shirts".

Furthermore it would be hard for the Giants to match the roughly $11 million that Saban earned with the Crimson Tide this season. Unless the Giants job is the one he covets. "These are all things I think are a little bit unique, but very self-gratifying".

On Tuesday, Franco made an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", where he denied the sexual misconduct allegations, saying, "There were some things on Twitter". Once they parked, Paley said Franco pressured her to perform oral sex on him. I truly believe, and why I was wearing the pin, is that they need to be a part of this conversation. I don't know, I really don't. Fellow student Katie Ryan claimed the Golden Globes victor would say they could get roles if they "perform sexual acts or take off our shirts". "And there was a culture of exploiting non-celebrity women, and a culture of women being replaceable".

In response to his win, "The Breakfast Club" actress Ally Sheedy, who worked with Franco in 2014, wrote in a now-deleted tweet, "Why is a man hosting?"

"So I don't want to, you know, shut them down in any way". The actor added that if he has "done something wrong", he will "fix it".

"I am still reading it the same as everyone else, trying to discern what is or isn't there", Simon said in a statement. Five women, including Paley and Tither-Kaplan, then shared troubling experiences with Franco in published early Thursday.

Tither-Kaplan also told the Times that anyone who balked or said no to the actor's demands was quickly removed from participating in Franco's productions.

But she said the negative experiences were "red flags". "I just thought I was being dramatic", she said.

"He's done a lot of damage on me", she said.

At one point, Franco seems visibly uncomfortable at one of Rogen's jokes: "James became famous for playing James Dean, which makes sense because they both sucked some dicks and made three good movies".
