WTF, James Franco?!

| Filed under: James Franco

james franco poses for candy magazine in drag shot by terry richardson

We never have any idea what he's thinking!

The always surprising James Franco appears in drag on the cover of Candy magazine, the first ever fashion mag to celebrate transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny.

And Terry Richardson served as photographer on the shoot making it that much weirder!

Trying to tell us something, Franco?!

    maybe he's just trying to say it's ok to be whoever you want to be and that we all should be comfortable with our sexuality..no matter the preference. it is things like what you just said that make this country so hateful, assuming someone is gay, transgender, or a cross dresser just because he did, what looked like to me, a fun photoshoot. i think his message is positive and brave. I'm sure many transgender individuals respect and appreciate him because of this. GO ON WIT UR BAD SELF JAMES!!!

    why soo suprised aren't all american men like this
    gay gay gay
    the whole world should send gays to america that would only be 2 people because america has the most gays in the world.

    Perez, you b*tch about acceptance for all and you constantly complain about stuff that's not the norm. Please make up your mind. You should be happy the he did this, it doesn't mean he's a tranny, maybe he just supports those that are. With all the suicides and bullying going on now, have a little more class so your words to young peole actually mean something. Right now your "it gets better" video means something, don't lose that.

    a magazine to celebrate weirdos - how enticing………….

    Why Daniel, why ? Oh desario… :/

    hot! sweeeetranny.

    Trying to tell us something? What, because he's open minded enough to do this he must be gay or something? This is why so many men are homophobic. Because people like you think every little thing they do must mean they're gay so they hate on gays to prove they're not. You're a bully Perez.

    one ugly women! LOL I need more fierceness, he just looks awkward…

  10. 10

    Wow. Who knew James Franco would make such an effing ugly woman? He's so pretty as a man.

    Re: n1ko11 – pretend your a homo for a day and find the nearest bridge or bottle of pills……….

    nice photo, but why did they have to fuck it up with all that awful graphic design??? who's the art director of this shizz ??? candy needs a make over, there are about 14 different type fonts on that one cover, plus, the frame and logo look like a bad European Club Flyer.

  13. 13

    This made me sick!

  14. 14

    Re: April 20th – why because im stating the obvious ? gays are celebrated in america more than anywhere else get over it its a gay country you live in.

  15. 15

    Ahh n1ko11-spoken like a real cold war soviet…I guess of freedom of expression and whatnot is still in the closet there eh?

  16. 16

    Mario, you'd have to be intelligent to understand this photograph. He's supporting the idea that being different is okay. Personally, I love it :)

  17. 17

    Hey n1ko11- how manly of you to lurk/hang out with all of the gays here- you must be here on the down-low. Now that we have your internet com number we will spam you with explicit homosexual images comrade…maybe the secret police will arrest you-or arrange for dates no?

    How random.

  19. 19

    I think he looks amazing!

  20. 20

    Re: April 20th – easy way out huh? not surprising small mind. : )

  21. 21

    He looks amazing!!

  22. 22

    Re: n1ko11 – no, because you're an idiot - has nothing to do with America - the world in general would just be better without people that make inane comments like yourself.

  23. 23

    Re: n1ko11 – word of advice, shut up, your lack of intelligence is evident in your writings.

    for the record the us is behind most every other nation on gay rights. but then again you would not know that since you could never graduate from the third grade

  24. 24

    he looks like babe! i think its awesome that he did this.

  25. 25

    like seriously…what straight guy any of you know who hangs out in the chat room on perez hilton.com??? i don't know any. lol. like, zero. 0. it's shaped like a hole for a reason. because it's empty. none. zero. and I have TONS of straight guy friends.

  26. 26

    perez is a self-hating gay

  27. 27

    Re: Samantha Sweeney – Amen!!! I couldn't have said it better myself :)

  28. 28

    like,seriously. I don't think a straight man hanging out reading all the nooks and crannies on PerezHilton.com can really call himself straight. maybe I'm wrong, but I'm not.

  29. 29

    Re: April 20th – I didn't insult you just commented on your "find a bridge & pill comment". Not sure how that qualifies me as an idiot. Anyways, anyone who has to make a comment like that must have that idea on the brain so….get at 'er..:) Have a great day!!! : )

  30. 30

    Re: JETHRO2 – I'm gonna have to 100% agree with that!

    And by the way, James Franco is very comfortable with his sexuality, so I say kudos for him for trying to make other people comfortable with theirs!

  31. 31

    He looks like Blake Lively….but only hotter than her (or him, you never know, lol)

  32. 32

    you ran this photo a whiiiile ago, dude.

  33. 33

    Re: Samantha Sweeney

    Excellent post!! I agree!

  34. 34

    Re: Cherylez
    If you read April20's comments, he never replied to you, unless you're doubling on here as both Cherylez and n1ko11.

  35. 35

    Perez is not even worth me mentioning in this comment. James Franco is so damn hot but not like this. But, yeah everyone should be who they want.

  36. 36

    Why does Terry Richardson continue to get work? The guy should be in prison. He's such a creep.

  37. lyse says – reply to this


    He looks like Rashida Jones with heavy make up

  39. 39

    he looks amazing lol.. i love it.. he is so creative and out there.. he is an awesome guy.. so secure to be able to do that… and i agree just becuase you are supportive and open minded doesn't mean you are gay Perez!
    although i think it was just some wishful thinkin on Perez's part haha
    Re: n1ko11 – for you moron!!!! The american's are so far behind in gay rights it's not even funny… the reason it is always all over our news is becuase the gay people in america still have so many rights than the gay people in european countries and places like Canada where they can marry.. it is a big issue here because people want equal rights for everyone..
    why don't you get over your shit and stop being such a jack ass

    LOVE IT!!!!!!

    As a woman who is into transvestites, I know that not all trannies are homosexual. In fact, A LOT of them are straight or at least like women too. A lot of them do it because they worship women THAT MUCH.

    To hint that he might be gay because he's cross dressing is a symptom of ingrained gender roles. I'm surprised that it's coming from a gay man.

  42. 42

    this has hardly anything to do with the post, but i was so shocked i need to comment about it :S this cover would never pass here in spain, not because of the photograph per se, but because of the "viva franco" title. it's strange how the same words can mean something entirely different depending on the country. god. i never thought i would see the day in which the photograph of a trans is accompanied by the title "viva franco". somebody could (under extreme circumstances, but still) have died had it been published in spain!! there, i expressed my shock xDD

  43. 43

    I love that he doesn't care what anyone thinks and is doing what he wants…he's not hurting anyone- he is posing for a picture…good for him! (her?ha)

  44. 44

    I commend him for doing this, I love this man! I think the message of this photo is that it's okay to be different, and that it shouldn't matter what anyone else says or thinks of you that you should embrace who you are! You're the one saying that bullying needs to stop and are advertising it gets better, but you're also the one tearing people down by bullying them. If we want to stop the rate of teen suicides we need to stop bullying people. Just because he dressed in drag doesn't mean he's gay, it just means he's comfortable with his sexuality. I think he's brave for doing this especially when he knows people aren't going to accept it or are going to tear him down for it.

    This is the only strigth male actor I will ever respect. He just doesn't give a shit. Thats what makes him kooler than anyone else. He is the actor justin timberlake longs to be.

    Re: n1ko11 – what the fuck are you talking about? Europe has some of the gayest countries! Idiot!

    Re: JETHRO2 – Umm, I'm straight and I post here from time to time. You're acting like this is a gay porn website.

    Re: JETHRO2 – I'm a straight guy, I mean.

  49. 49

    lol at the comments that said rashida and blake
    i can totally see that!

  50. 50

    Re: JETHRO2 – I've known my straight guy for 20 years, and while he doesn't log in on his own, he laughs when I read stuff to him or he reads over my shoulder. Perez is just funny and he appreciates that…he doesn't care who is writing it and he is couldn;t care less about someone's sexual orientation. Humor is humor. Or maybe he's not telling me something? Hhhhmmmm……. :)

    Re: n1ko11 – Gay rights are recognized in many countries and it is not considered a big deal because they are considered basic human rights. Any law that does not allow equal rights for gays is unconstitutional. Our country was based on religious freedom for all and separation of church and state. So, when you enact legislature that is faith based, it is not constitutional to do so. That simple.

  52. 52

    He's an actor and he's playing a part. Looks very Rocky Horror. No big whoop.

  53. 53

    Re: organicgal – I was gonna mention the same thing!
    Very Dr. Frank-N-Furter if you ask meeeee! :D
    Usually I'd say no to a remake of anything! But I think James would be the closest actor in doing justice to Tim Curry! Arh well..A girl can still dream! :D x

    Re: Natanya – brilliantly said! bravo!
