American actor and director James Franco several years ago was accused of sexually harassing students at his theater school
Five girls, students of the James Franco School of Acting, filed a lawsuit several years ago, accusing the man of harassment. At the moment, the incident is over, the actor managed to peacefully solve all the problems with the victims.
It is not known how the victims were able to drop their individual charges. However, all five girls withdrew their charges and have no more claims against Franco. That is, the sex scandal is over in favor of the American actor.
It is now known that the girls' lawyers and the director's lawyers filed a joint report with the Los Angeles Supreme Court, which lists all the points confirming that both parties have no claims against each other. It says that all the plaintiffs have come to a peaceful solution to the problem, and the girls of the acting school no longer have claims against its head. The only caveat for the actor is the fact that elements of the trial are still kept in the courtroom. Moreover, the case, which was started several years ago, will remain in the database of law enforcement agencies for a long time.
What is known about the scandal involving James Franco?
In 2019, five women who are aspiring actresses at once filed a lawsuit against James Franco for sexual harassment. Four of the victims were students of the acting school, which belongs to the director. The girls claimed that the celebrity acted unprofessional and inappropriate during the rehearsals of explicit scenes. Moreover, off-site, he also continued to harass his students.
The girls said that James forced them to oral sex. Moreover, some of the students were still underage at that time. Also, the man offered to do outrageous things, ostensibly to work out intimate scenes on the set. He argued this by the fact that in real cinema, sometimes you have to do completely different things, make certain sacrifices.
The acting school of James Franco lasted only three years, after which it was closed for uncertain reasons.
After the girls filed a lawsuit, James himself and his lawyers denied all charges. Unfortunately, this case left a big imprint on Franco's film career. Since these harassment was committed by a man in 2018, when he received the Golden Globe statuette, he was later deprived of this award. Also, James was removed from the Oscar nomination, and other prestigious awards.
A little later, the man decided to rectify the situation and supported the MeToo women's movement. So far, his career is on hiatus, but now that the case is closed, perhaps something will change in the fate of the once popular actor.
