- Five women have stepped forward to accuse James Franco of inappropriate or sexually exploitive behavior.
- Sarah Tither Kaplan was a former acting student at Franco’s film school. She told the LA Times that while filming a nude orgy scene, Franco removed the plastic protective guards from the actresses vaginas while simulating oral sex.
- Two other students said Franco would get mad if they refused to film topless. Others have said that Franco would go beyond the normal parameters and out female students in uncomfortable situations.
- The school was suddenly closed last fall.
