As James Franco was accepting the Golden Globe award for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for his work in The Disaster Artist, several women were preparing to speak their minds about inappropriate interactions they've had with him in the past.

The first accusations came on Twitter immediately following Franco's win, with two accusers calling him out for wearing a #TimesUp pin.

In a Los Angeles Times report published Thursday, three more women made accusations against Franco.

In 2014, after Franco admitted to trying to approach a 17-year-old and get a hotel room where she was staying even after having learned her age, told his Instagram followers that he hoped parents would keep their teens away from him.

The allegations the Los Angeles Times this morning come from five different women.

She told the outlet she saw Franco as a mentor when they began a romantic relationship in 2016.

Paley and Tither-Kaplan earlier tweeted about their past encounters with Franco after the actor wore a pin supporting the Time's Up initiative for gender equality at Sunday's Golden Globes.

Tither-Kaplan said a producer on "The Long Home" asked her to film a bonus scene of an orgy, in which she appeared fully nude with Franco and other women.

Katie Ryan, another of Franco's former students, alleged that the actor "would always make everybody think there were possible roles on the table if we were to perform sexual acts or take off our shirts".

Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, disputed all of the women's allegations.

Actress Violet Paley accused Franco of exposing himself and pressuring her into performing oral sex while they were in a consensual relationship. And I truly believe they need to be part of this conversation. "I felt that he was still not really taking accountability for the environment on the sets". Four of them were Franco's students, while the other one was his mentee at the film school that the actor founded.

"I just didn't want him to hate me, so I did it", she told the Times referring to her complaint. "If I've done something wrong, I will fix it".

While chatting in the the vehicle, Franco surprised her by suddenly taking his penis out, she said, and putting her hand on it.

Sources said that scripts for Season 2 of HBO's "The Deuce" featuring James Franco's twin characters Vincent and Frankie Martino are now being written even after allegations of sexual misconduct against the actor surfaced. "Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business", the former Breakfast Club star tweeted during the show, captioning one of her tweets, "#MeToo". She began laughing nervously, she said, and offered to meet up with him later - not in a auto, not in public.

On Twitter and in the L.A. Times article, Paley said Franco offered her an apology a few weeks ago. "I have to", he said.
