In 2018, James Franco was accused of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior by two of his former students. Soon after, other women decided to testify against him for the same facts. If he had denied the facts and then signed a financial agreement with the plaintiffs, James Franco finally made shocking revelations on Wednesday, December 22.

The 127 Hour actor spoke on Jess Cagle’s podcast SiriusXM and looked back on the relationships he had with some of his students. These are young women who attended his theater school, Studio 4. A school that he opened in 2014 and closed three years later. The 43-year-old actor said: “I admit it, I slept with my students […] and it was bad” before continuing: “I think at that time, I was like, if it’s consensual, it’s ok “.

James Franco: “At that time, I didn’t have a clear idea”.

If the actor known for his role of Harry Osborn in the Spider-Man trilogy today spends the perfect love with Isabel Pakzad, his love life has long been chaotic. The one who once had very little respect for his companions admitted having made a mistake in maintaining relationships with students over whom he had some power. He said: “At that time, I was not very clear headed.”

Even if the statements of James Franco in no way excuse his behavior, the actor still tried to justify himself. He wanted to come back to his complicated childhood, his addiction to alcohol, to “power” by becoming famous and then to his addiction to sex. He said he “worked a lot on himself” to be able to change and become a better person. James Franco finally concluded by apologizing and stating that he “didn’t want to hurt anyone”.
