Franco, who was also photographed filming The Deuce earlier this month, looked to be in high spirits while walking around Manhattan on Tuesday in '70s garb. The actor plays twin brothers Vincent and Frankie Martino, who become fronts for the New York mob operating out of Times Square.
A January article in the Los Angeles Times detailed the accounts of five women accusing Franco of abuse of power and inappropriate behavior. A source close to Franco, however, disputed that number, adding that the accusations against the actor are false.

Earlier this month, Sharon Stone, who worked with Franco on The Disaster Artist, defended him from the allegations.
"I’m appalled by this thing about him that is happening. Now all of a sudden he’s a bad guy? I worked with him, I know him," she said in an interview with Marc Maron on his WTF podcast, "He's the loveliest, kindest, sweetest, elegant, nicest man. He’s a kind friend, lovely professional. I’m absolutely appalled by this."
