Why is James Franco allowed in?

As a result, he did not attend Thursday night's festivities in the Santa Monica Airport hangar, where he ended up winning the Best Actor in a Comedy honor for his role in The Disaster Artist.

The Spier-Man actor, 39, had previously said that allegations made on social media after his Golden Globes win were "not accurate".

Tither-Kaplan, who went on to appear in several Franco productions, acknowledged the positive remarks - and said Franco later apologized for making her feel uncomfortable.

A former acting student, Sarah Tither-Kaplan, recalled another time where Franco filmed an orgy scene and none of the women present were wearing clothing.

Franco has become increasingly embroiled in a sexual misconduct scandal following his appearance at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.

In a tweet, actress Violet Paley said Franco once attempted to force her to perform oral sex in a auto.

While doing the rounds for The Disaster Artist, James has been questioned about the allegations, and stated in an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night that the claims made about him were "not accurate". I had nothing but a great time with her.

Snow-melting rain, flooding and fog forecast for Friday
Temperatures were expected to climb to the 20s Saturday and not leap above the freezing mark of 32 degrees until Monday . The low tonight is expected to be about 10, with wind chill values reaching zero in some areas.


"The others, look, In my life I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I've done".

Tither-Kaplan alleged that Franco asked her to play a prostitute in the film "The Long Home", which starred Courtney Love, Josh Hutcherson and Timothy Hutton.

Paley previously told the Los Angeles Times that she and Franco were in a consensual, sexual relationship, but one time in a vehicle he pressured her to give him oral sex and forced her head onto his exposed penis.

Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, told The LA Times that he disputed all the women's allegations in the article.

Actress Ally Sheedy also said in a since-deleted tweet that Franco was an example of why she left the movie business. "I have to", he said without elaborating.

Since Sunday, several women have come forward to say Franco sexually exploited them or behaved inappropriately.

"I have to do that to maintain my well being". 'And I think that we've all behaved, at a certain level, unconsciously, and done things that were insensitive, inappropriate, without necessarily understanding that they were.

"Given the controversy surrounding recent allegations, we're no longer comfortable proceeding in that vein", a spokesman said.
