Two other former students told the paper about a strip club scene that both considered unprofessional. Five women, including Paley and Tither-Kaplan, then shared troubling experiences with Franco in published early Thursday.

Franco had launched the Studio 4 acting schools in Los Angeles and NY in 2014, but both schools were closed suddenly a year ago, the Times reported.

Franco sparked criticism for wearing a Time's Up badge in support of the movement against sexual harassment at Sunday night's (7 January) awards ceremony, which prompted allegations against his own conduct.

The women said Franco stormed off when no one obliged. "I would say, 'No, stop, get out of my vehicle, '" she told the Times.

James Franco has been on late night television throughout the week, which should have seen him celebrating his Golden Globe win and promoting The Disaster Artist, but it didn't go as the actor planned. James Franco's attorney has denied all of the allegations.

"Every actor in this room knows you are only as good as the other actors you work with" Kidman said, adding: "I want thank all of my children who show me so much love". "If I have to take a knock because I am not going to try and actively refute things then I will, because I believe in it that much".

"I got it in my head pretty quickly that, OK, you don't say "no" to this guy", Tither-Kaplan told the L.A. Times. [MUSIC] There are incredible voices, and I support it. "The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate", Franco told Colbert. She also wrote, "Why is a man hosting?" "If I've done something wrong, I will fix it".

Franco said he had "no idea" why Sheedy, whom he directed in a 2014 off-Broadway play, was upset.

Additionally, Tither-Kaplan said that Franco removed "protective plastic guards covering other actresses' vaginas while simulating oral sex on them" while filming these scenes. Four of the women were students in Franco's acting classes and one is a filmmaker who considered him a mentor.

Violet Paley said that during a consensual relationship, Franco once pressured her to perform oral sex in a auto and that the "power dynamic was really off".

Franco concluded his comments on the allegations against him by saying that regardless if he is being implicated in the crossfires, he believes these stories need to be heard. During an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, he says, "Look, in my life, I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I have done".

The Times said in a statement that it had canceled the event "given the controversy surrounding recent allegations".
