Five women accuse James Franco Sexual allegations Critics Choice Movie Award, Franco wore a Time's Up pin at the Golden Globes Awards

Golden Globe victor James Franco said accusations of sexual misconduct made against him on Twitter this week were "not accurate" but said in a television interview that 'if I've done something wrong, I will fix it.' - Reuters picLONDON, Jan 14 - Ashley Judd has addressed to the sexual harassment allegations surrounding James Franco - and her reaction might surprise you.

Of the 5 to come forward and accuse actor James France of sexual misconduct and "abuse of power", four of the accusers stated that James Franco abused his power and forced them to perform topless or even undress and be completely nude.

As Pulse Headlines previously reported, artists assisted to the Sunday ceremony wearing black with this pin on to recall a change inside the Hollywood industry - which has been filled with sexual allegations since the American mogul and producer Harvey Weinstein was accused the first time, last year.

While speaking with HARDtalk's Stephen Sackur, Judd, 49, praised Franco's response and said, "I think that what James said is terrific". I wonder, now, about the atmosphere that you see - in your industry, in entertainment, in other industries too - where it seems some men feel that they are, in a sense, being presumed guilty without due process.

Between the Globes and the Times report, Franco appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where he was asked about the allegations. James Franco "would always make everybody think there were possible roles on the table if we were to perform sexual acts or take off our shirts" in his projects, Katie Ryan told the Times.

She went on to say, "This is about men and women being all together and having a more equitable and just workplace, home life, social spaces".

A longtime friend of "The Disaster Artist" actor told E!

He has denied all allegation through his attorney Michael Plonsker. He had addressed the article in an interview with Seth Meyers, saying his side of the story was different, but that he believes in "these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say".

"But I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn't have a voice for so long".

If I have done something wrong, I will fix it - I have to. It's a good thing I support.

'I mean, we know that when women are empowered in the workplace and are in decision-making positions that workplaces have better financial outcomes and there's less harassment when there is more diversity.
