She alleges that during the scene, Franco removed the plastic guard covering the other women's genitals before simulating oral sex.

Two other students, Hilary Dusome and Natalie Chmiel, both 33, also told the Los Angeles Times yesterday Franco got "visibly angry" when they refused to go topless during a commercial.

It was promoted in James Franco's Studio 4 classes that he would train actors and then give them parts in his projects. Franco was one of the many actors at Sunday's Golden Globes sporting a Time's Up pin on his lapel, meant to show support for the initiative aiming to end sexual harassment in the workplace. "Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business". Though The Disaster Artist's Golden Globe victor wasn't asked about those allegations, he was asked by Meyers about tweets from Ally Sheedy and others alleging similar misbehavior. All of them said Franco tried to take advantage of women's eagerness to advance their careers while working with him or attending a school where he taught.

The actor then pointed out that most of the things he heard on Twitter were inaccurate.

"I truly believe, and why I was wearing the pin, is that they [women and others] need to be part of this conversation", Franco said of why he wore a Time's Up pin to the Golden Globes. "So I don't want to shut them down in any way". The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate.

She wrote: "Remember the time you pushed my head down in a vehicle towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17?" Afterward Franco said he was "embarrassed" and said social media is "tricky". "I felt that he was still not really taking accountability for the environment on the sets".

Four of Franco's five accusers were students at the Studio 4 film school he founded and the fifth referred to the actor as her mentor. He said that "if there's restitution to be made, I will make it". She told the LA Times that she had asked Franco "can we do this later?", but that "he was kind of nudging my head down, and I just didn't want him to hate me, so I did it". [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [music] I have no idea what I did to Ally, I directed her in a play off broadway I had nothing but a great time with her, total respect for her. "I don't know what else to do", Franco told Colbert in the interview, which was marked by several silences.

His attorney Michael Plonsker said the allegations were "not accurate".

"If I have done something wrong", he added, "I will fix it - I have to".
