■ Legendary fashion photographers Bruce Weber and Mario Testino have been dropped by magazine publisher Condé Nast after nearly 30 male models and assistants accused the pair of coercive sexual behavior in a New York Times exposé. Several models told the newspaper that Weber grabbed their privates and put his hands down their pants. Others accused Testino, 63, who has photographed the English royal family several times, of pinning them on the bed during hotel room castings and masturbating in front of them. “He was a sexual predator,” said model Ryan Locke. Testino’s lawyers challenged the “credibility” of his accusers, while Weber, 71, called the claims “outrageous.” Famed Vogue editor Anna Wintour, now artistic director of Condé Nast, said the allegations had been “heartbreaking to confront” but that Condé would not work with the two photographers “for the foreseeable future.”
■ James Franco wore a “Time’s Up” badge to the Golden Globes, but now he, too, is facing allegations of sexual misconduct. Five women—four of them his former film school students—accused the actor of sexually exploiting them. The women told the Los Angeles Times that Franco would pressure them to film nude or topless scenes during sessions at his acting school and engaged in real oral sex with them while filming an orgy scene. One of Franco’s accusers, Sarah Tither-Kaplan, said his behavior was “an abuse of power.” Franco said he has his “own side of this story” but that he supports women “being able to have a voice, because they didn’t have a voice for so long.”
■ Mark Wahlberg has pledged to donate $1.5 million to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund after it emerged he was paid about 1,500 times more than female co-star Michelle Williams for reshoots of All the Money in the World. Several of the movie’s scenes had to be refilmed after Kevin Spacey was wiped from the project following a sexual harassment scandal. While Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million for those reshoots, Williams received just around $1,000—or $80 a day—prompting a furious uproar on social media. Wahlberg subsequently said he was committed to “the fight for fair pay” and would donate the fee in Williams’ name.
