However, Tither-Kaplan revealed she found it galling to see Franco support the campaign, as she has accused the 39-year-old actor of abusing his power as the head of Studio 4, the comedy and improv school that he abruptly closed in October last year.

As previously reported, five women came forward to accuse Franco of inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior.

James Franco attends The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 7, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.

More specifically, Tither-Kaplan claimed that during one orgy scene with Franco, he removed protective plastic guards covering other actress' vaginas and then simulated performing oral sex on them.

At the Globes, Franco won for best actor and wore a Time's Up pin showing his support for the new initiative, which is devoted to addressing sexual harassment in the workplace and promoting gender equality.

Another of Franco's accusers, Natalie Chmiel, claimed that he became "visibly angry" when the actresses declined to remove their tops. He had addressed the article in an interview with Seth Meyers, saying his side of the story was different, but that he believes in "these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say". "We were all these up-and-coming actors who were so hopeful".

"I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I've done", Franco said.

"I have to do that to maintain my well being".

"But I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn't have a voice for so long". 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.
