Sopan Deb, the reporter who had been slated to moderate the event Wednesday evening, tweeted that he had asked Franco to respond to the allegations, but the actor refused.

Actress Violet Paley, 23, told the paper that during a consensual relationship with Franco, he pressured her into performing oral sex while they were in a vehicle. The two had been having a consensual relationship, but they'd never engaged in oral sex before he exposed himself, she said. Actress Sarah Tither-Kaplan suggested Franco's practice of encouraging women to perform fully nude was "exploitative", and Ally Sheedy also appeared to suggest he had something to do with why she "left the film/tv business".

She began to perform the sex act, but was uncomfortable. Together they detailed a picture of Franco attempting to coerce them into performing sexually explicit scenes.

Organisers had billed the event in Santa Monica as being attended by Franco, but after announcing him as the victor, actor Walton Goggins said: "James couldn't be here tonight to accept this, so we will accept it on his behalf". That same night, multiple women spoke out against Franco over Twitter. He added that he wouldn't "actively refute" the women's claims because "this is a conversation that obviously needs to be had".
