Actor James Franco has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women online, including actress Violet Paley, who tweeted, “Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17?” Franco wore a “Time’s Up” pin to the Golden Globe Awards Sunday. The “Time’s Up” initiative was launched to combat sexual harassment and assault. This is James Franco, denying the accusations during an interview last night on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

James Franco: “In my life, I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I’ve done. I have to do that to maintain my well-being. I do it whenever I know that there’s something wrong or needs to be changed. I make it a point to do it. The things that I heard were on Twitter are not accurate.”

James Franco won a Golden Globe for best performance by an actor for his role in “The Disaster Artist.”
