NEW YORK (AP) — Two women who have accused actor James Franco of sexual misconduct say they're waiting for him to make amends.

Violet Paley and Sarah Tither-Kaplan appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday and repeated accusations they've made on Twitter that Franco abused his power and behaved inappropriately.

Paley has accused Franco of coercing her into performing oral sex on him. She said Tuesday she would like Franco to "please just apologize."

Tither-Kaplan was a student in a master class on sex scenes taught by Franco. She said a lot of scenes "seemed gratuitous and exploitative." She said Franco exploited the "non-celebrity women" he worked with.

Franco's representative made no comment except to say the women's claims are not accurate. Franco said earlier: "If I've done something wrong, I will fix it."
