Yesterday, five women went on record accusing the actor of sexually inappropriate and exploitative behaviour, four of which are Franco's former acting students.
On Thursday, the Los Angeles Times published a report detailing accusations from women who attended Franco's acting school, Studio 4.
Another woman, Katie Ryan, claimed Franco requested she audition for role as a "prostitute or hooker". He says he supports those who come forward but at that time, he didn't know what the tweets were about. "I felt like I was selected for something based on my hard work and my merit, and when I realized it was because I have nice [breasts], it was pretty clear that was not the case", she said. Their sources say that the 39-year-old is now in a bad place after enduring several recent grueling talk show appearances.More news: Brokenshire resigns from Cabinet for medical reasons
Franco appeared on Tuesday's "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert", where he addressed the allegations made against him for sexual misconduct. I haven't responded. I think, well the ones I read were not accurate, but one of the things that I've learned is that this is a conversation that obviously needs to be had.
Franco, as a teacher and mentor, had a position of power with several of the women, one of whom described an environment where saying no to Franco could get them sent home from the set of a movie. She alleges that during the scene, Franco removed the plastic guard covering the other women's genitals before simulating oral sex.
"Look, in my life I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I have done", he told the host.More news: Toronto girl 'really scared' after man cuts her hijab on street
Another woman said Franco asked the students to take their tops off and became "visibly angry" when they declined.
One of Franco's original accusers on Twitter, actress Violet Paley, said that during a relationship, he pressured her to perform oral sex in a auto. Sheedy worked with Franco on an off-Broadway play in 2014, but Franco told Colbert that he had no idea what he did to Sheedy and had "nothing but a great time with her". She said: "I use twitter to make jokes most of the time". "Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business", the former Breakfast Club star tweeted during the show, captioning one of her tweets, "#MeToo". "I'm completely willing and want to". Meyers then pressed Franco on why he hadn't reached out to Sheedy "as someone that you've had a good relationship with before to try to understand why she would have done that?"More news: Classified US Satellite Launched from Vandenberg
