Actor James Franco recently received the award “Golden globe” for the film “Mountain-Lord”, but it did not make him less guilty for sexual harassment, of which he was accused five women. Four of them at the time of the indecent behavior of the stars were the students of his film school. This was reported by the newspaper the Los Angeles Times. Franco, who supports the movement against harassment Time’s Up, denies all charges:
“Yes, I read the accusations on Twitter, but did not answer them. I think they are not quite accurate, I have my own opinion on this matter. But I realized that talking about it definitely should be. There are people who were not part of this discussion, and I believe that they need to tell their stories. I fully support it.”
“As I said, there is a history, which needs to know the public. There are people who need to hear,” says Franco.
One of the victims, the actress violet Paley, argues that James molested her when she was seventeen years old.
“I thought that I had been selected to star in a movie for my merits and hard work. But then I realized, I was chosen for an attractive chest,” said Paley.
Other women said that the actor did not behave appropriately during the filming of explicit scenes and classes in film school.
Hopefully, the actor will not fall into depression from which he had suffered in the past year. “I had a few addictions in adolescence, but I got through it all. When I started playing at 17, then head left to the actors. I fell in love with this thing, got so immersed that stopped doing anything else and communicate with other people. It has been 10 years, and at 27 I realized that horribly depressed. Yes, my life seemed great: I had a career, money, everything, but I felt awfully lonely. In the end, I went back to College, but it was still an escape from the problems.” says the actor about his experiences.
