Actor and director James Franco responded to allegations that he engaged in sexual misconduct in an interview Wednesday on SiriusXM, admitting that he had sex with some of his students.

The allegations were made against Franco in 2018, with five women accusing him of “inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior,” reported the Los Angeles Times. In the interview with podcast host Jess Cagle, Franco said he hesitated to address the allegations in 2018 because “it didn’t seem like the right time to say anything.”

“Look, I’ll admit I did sleep with students. I didn’t sleep with anybody in [my ‘Sex Scenes’ class], but, over the course of my teaching, I did sleep with students and that was wrong,” Franco explained.

“But like I said, I, it’s not why I started the school and I, I didn’t, I wasn’t the person that selected the people to be in the class. So it wasn’t a master plan on my part. But yes, there were certain instances where, you know what I was in a consensual thing with, with a student and I shouldn’t have been.”
