We see you, James Franco!
During a recent sit down with New York Magazine, the Milk actor once again discussed his sexuality where he labeled himself as “a little gay.” Now, before all you boys get overexcited, the Freaks and Geeks alum clarified that it is more of a “persona.”
While Franco may not fight the idea that he is a bit of a tease, he does think the media looks too closely at the status of his sexuality. On his sexual identity, James explained:
“There is a bit of overfocusing on my sexuality, both by the straight press and the gay press, and so the first question is why do they care? Well, because I’m a celebrity, so I guess they care who I’m having sex with. But if your definition of gay and straight is who I sleep with, then I guess you could say I’m a gay cock tease. It’s where my allegiance lies, where my sensibilities lie, how I define myself. Yeah, I’m a little gay, and there’s a gay James.”
Did you follow that? We guess there’s hope yet after all.
Perhaps this open mindedness is what makes the Pineapple Express actor such a successful performer? The 38-year-old’s latest project King Cobra has him once again playing a leading gay man on screen. It’s said that James and his costar Keegan Allen even have a pretty explicit scene together.
