Sarah Tither mentioned that she once had a project with James Franco and received treatment that was not wearing during the filming process. He was charged for continuous nude scenes. Sarah also accused James of exploiting herself, since she was given only $ 1.3 million a day. However, at that time Sarah could not fight for having to finance her own life.

In addition to Sarah, an actress Violet Payne and feminist activist, Jessica Valenti also claimed James had sexually harassed by trying to seduce a 17-year-old girl to come to her hotel room.

James Franco did not remain silent. On the television show The Howard Stern Show, James stated that dating a young girl is not something that should be a problem, because they like each other. James also stated the age of 17 years in New York is no longer considered a minor age.

"The things I heard on Twitter were not true. But I am very supportive of people who are brave and can have a voice because they have been silenced for a long time. If I make a mistake, I will fix it, "lid James Franco.
