James Franco is not coping well after being accused of sexually exploitative behavior by five women earlier this month.

Although the 39-year-old actor claims the allegations against him are "not accurate," a source tells ET that his inner circle is still concerned about his well-being at the moment.

"His friends are really worried about him," the source reveals. "He's not in a good place. They're watching him around the clock. He's really struggling."

The source adds that Franco has been "a nervous wreck" ever since the #MeToo movement gained momentum, following sexual misconduct allegations against some of the most prominent names in the industry, like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Matt Lauer.

Worried about him ' amid inappropriate sexual behavior allegations , sources say . James Franco is not coping well after being accused of sexually exploitative behavior in five claims "His friends are really worried about him ," the source reveals.

"His friends are really worried about him ," the source reveals. "He' s not in a good place. As previously reported, five women, including four former students, accused Franco of " inappropriate or sexual exploitative behavior " in an article published by The Los Angeles Times.

"He's not surprised this came out," the source explains. "He actually reached out to multiple former students from his class, so he could speak to them. He is genuinely remorseful."

A second source confirmed to ET that The Disaster Artist actor-director is "distressed," but it's not due to guilt.

"This has been incredibly difficult to deal with and navigate, not because he feels guilty [but because] he is navigating this situation and wants to ensure he is doing the right thing, supporting the movement and not undermining any women," the source says.

The source also noted that Franco is maintaining "that the accusations against him are false," saying, "He has evidence that would support this but has no intention to release that, because he doesn't want to be silencing someone and he doesn't want anyone to feel silenced. As he said to Seth Meyers, he cares about the movement so much he's willing to take a hit rather than be someone who silences women."

"He will carry on supporting the cause and moving forward," the source concluded.

ET has reached out to Franco's rep for comment.

As previously reported, five women, including four former students, accused Franco of "inappropriate or sexual exploitative behavior" in an article published by The Los Angeles Times. He was accused of an "abuse of power," and of "storming off" when two female acting students wouldn't take their tops off for a scene. One student claims, "He would always make everybody think there were possible roles on the table if we were to perform sexual acts or take off our shirts."

Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, disputes all of the women's allegations, including the ones above.

James Franco Skips Critics Choice Awards Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

  James Franco Skips Critics Choice Awards Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations James Franco won in the Best Actor category for his role in The Disaster Artist at the Critics Choice Awards on Thursday, January 11 — but he wasn’t there to accept the award. In fact, an onlooker tells Us Weekly that no one clapped when his name was announced. Hollywood Sexual Misconduct Scandals The Freaks and Geeks alum, 39, skipped the star-studded event amid the ongoing sexual misconduct allegations made against him. (However, his sister-in-law Alison Brie, married to Dave Franco, was in attendance.) Just hours before the show, five women accused the actor of inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior, which was published in The Los Angeles Times.

Although the 39-year-old actor says the allegations against him are "not accurate," a source tells ET that his inner circle is still concerned about his well-being at the moment. "His friends are really worried about him ," the source reveals.

The report came shortly after the Palo Alto, California, native was criticized for wearing a "Time's Up" pin while accepting the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy award for his portrayal of Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The pin was created as a symbol for the movement, which brings awareness to gender inequality and sexual harassment issues that have long plagued Hollywood.

Franco was a guest on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert just two days after the Globes, where he addressed the backlash. However, this was before the Los Angeles Times report was published.

"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," Franco -- who was noticeably absent from the Critics' Choice Awards last week -- said. "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, but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice, because they didn't have a voice for so long," he added. "So I don't want to shut them down in any way. I think it's a good thing and I support it."

James Franco snubbed for Oscar nomination amid sexual misconduct allegations

  James Franco snubbed for Oscar nomination amid sexual misconduct allegations James Franco’s name was not called when Oscar nominations were announced on Tuesday, as the actor has come under fire over allegations of sexual misconduct. Twelve days after five women accused Franco of inappropriate or exploitative behavior in a Jan. 11 Los Angeles Times exposé, the 39-year-old actor failed to receive a nomination from the Academy for his leading role in The Disaster Artist. Franco skipped the Critics’ Choice Awards (where he won the award for best actor in a comedy) earlier this month in the wake of the allegations. He was in attendance at the SAG Awards on Sunday, where he was a nominee for best actor but did not win the category. During the Golden Globes telecast — where Franco won best actor in a comedy — actress Ally Sheedy, who worked with Franco in 2014 on his Off-Broadway directorial debut, The Long Shrift, tweeted her displeasure with The Disaster Artist star, writing, “Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much…. James Franco just won. Please never ever ask me why I left the film/tv business.” The L.A. Times article, published four days later, included more detailed accusations against Franco. Actress Violet Paley revealed an interaction with Franco while she was reportedly in a romantic relationship him, in which he reportedly began “nudging” her head toward his genitals. “I just didn’t want him to hate me, so I did it,” Paley said.

He publicly addressed the allegations again one day later, while appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers. "There are people that need to be heard. I have my own side of this story, but I believe in these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say, just because I believe in it that much," he shared. "So if I have to take a knock because I’m not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much.”
