Actor James Franco, is accused of abusing his position to engage in ‘sexually charged behaviour towards female students’ by ‘dangling the opportunity for roles’ in his movies.

Former students, Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal, say Franco tried to “create a pipeline of young women who were subjected to his personal and professional sexual exploitation in the name of education”.

In the lawsuit, the students allege they were pushed into taking part in explicit sex scenes ‘that went far beyond the standards in the industry’.

In a statement to the New York Times, Franco’s lawyer denied the accusations and called the lawsuit ‘ill-informed’.
