James Franco: ‘Yeah, I’m a little gay’
James Franco has for the first time described himself as ‘a little gay.’
The Oscar-nominated actor has taken on so many gay-themed projects that there’s long been widespread speculation about his own sexuality.
‘There is a bit of over-focusing on my sexuality, both by the straight press and the gay press,’ Franco says in a New York magazine cover story.
‘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.’
Franco had previously told Rolling Stone ‘I’m … gay in my life up to the point of intercourse’ and now reiterates that he does not sleep with other men.
‘If your definition of gay and straight is who I sleep with, then I guess you could say I’m a gay cock tease,’ he says. ‘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.’
Franco’s latest project is gay porn murder movie King Cobra which had its premiere over the weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival.
His previous gay-themed films include Milk, I Am Michael, Interior. Leather Bar., Howl and Sal.
