Actor Accused of Sexual Exploitation in New Lawsuit

Actor James Franco has been accused by former acting school students of sexual exploitation, according to a new lawsuit filed.

The suit, filed by Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal, says that both women were students at the Los Angeles branch of the Studio 4 school, which Franco co-founded, back in 2014. The lawsuit accuses Franco and other instructors of engaging in “inappropriate and sexually charged behavior toward female students.” They also claim the actor created “an environment of harassment and sexual exploitation.”

More specifically, the suit claims that young and inexperienced female students were “routinely pressured to engage in simulated sex acts that went far beyond the standards in the industry.”
