Two actresses have suedand the acting and film school he founded, saying the actor intimidated his students into gratuitous and exploitative sexual situations. Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal, former students at Franco’s now-closed Studio 24, filed the suit Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The lawsuit says Franco pushed his students into performing in increasingly explicit sex scenes on camera in an “orgy type setting.” The women say roles in Franco’s films would be dangled to those who went along.
The suit also alleges “the school’s true goal was creating a constant pipeline of women Franco and others could exploit professionally and place in compromising sexual situations.” It also alleges that “Franco took the ‘casting couch’ to another level by creating a ‘casting class.'”

When it comes to President Trump’s performance, Brad Pitt believes there are bigger things to worry about than tariffs on foreign booze.
When French outlet Journal du Dimanche asked the “Ad Astra” star (and Chateau Miraval vineyard co-owner) his feelings on Trump’s proposal to impose tariffs of up to 100 percent on French wine, he was candid.“I do not know [enough about the issue],” Pitt, 55, admitted. “I think we will always drink rosé in the United States. If there is a threat to the winemakers, it is a real concern,” he said, adding that ultimately, whether or not Trump does impose tariffs on French wine, there are much bigger issues at stake.
“Unfortunately, it’s almost anecdotal,” he said. “Trump represents a much bigger threat on such more serious issues.”
Sinead O’Connor insists that she’s always been Muslim — but that she only realized it recently.
The “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer, who revealed she was Muslim in 2018, explained on “Good Morning Britain” on Monday, “In Islam, you don’t call it conversion. You call it reversion — the idea is you were born Muslim in the first place, that any person with any logic would realize they were born Muslim all along.”“That’s actually what happened to me, by being a theologian all my life. I never thought that I would join any particular religion, but because I grew up in a theocracy, I was very interested in theology,” she said. “So I studied all the different religions, and I actually left Islam until last, because I had such a huge amount of prejudice about it actually, you know? But as soon as I read chapter two, I was like, ‘Oh my God. I’ve been a Muslim my whole life and didn’t even realize it.'”
Today, Brad Pitt — who is set to play a gun-wielding, pirate-hunting astronaut in the upcoming film Ad Astra — got the chance to speak to someone who actually has the job of his on-screen character: an astronaut on board the International Space Station. While at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, Pitt chatted with astronaut Nick Hague who has been living on the ISS since March.
ISS astronauts are fairly accustomed to doing interviews with journalists and schoolchildren while in space, but it’s a rare occasion when a movie actor is the voice on the line. Pitt started his line of questioning firmly in the entertainment sphere, asking Hague how realistic his new movie is when it comes to physics. (While the movie comes out on September 20th here on Earth, Hague and his fellow astronauts got to see it in advance.)
