James Franco accused of sexual misconduct by 5 women

Actor James Franco arrives for the 75th Golden Globe Awards on January 7, 2018, in Beverly Hills, California.

On Thursday, theLos Angeles Times quoted Franco's two former students as well as three more as saying that the actor acted in a sexually inappropriate way towards them.

According to another former student, Katie Ryan, Franco gave the impression the aspiring actors would receive roles if they performed sexual acts or took off their tops.

Franco, like hundreds of other Hollywood elite, wore a "Time's Up" button in solidarity to protest industry sexual misconduct, but some say he shouldn't have had it on.

Actress Violet Paley, 23, told the paper that during a consensual relationship with Franco, he pressured her into performing oral sex while they were in a auto.
