On April 19 James Franco turned 38 years old. In his honor the New York Magazine, published a long interview with the actor (and director, producer, writer and artist), from which we learned a lot about the birthday boy. So, James spoke openly about his orientation and admitted that he did not like stereotype thinking:
“If you're all wondering, who I am, gay or straight, based on the person with whom I sleep, then I think you can call me a men who loves to tease men” - The actor said.
Franco admitted that he had never had relationship with a men, but he allowed himself “close contacts":
“When I try to squeeze myself in some definitions, all my senses rebel against it. Yeah, I guess I'm a little bit gay. This is the second side of me - gay James Franco”.
The last words of the star are obviously related to his book of poems with the provocative title Straight James / Gay James ("James Straight / Gay James"), which was published last year. In this book, in addition to poetry, Franco also published dialogues with himself, in which he was thinking about his nature.
It is evident, however, that Franco is so worried about this issue: despite his affairs with girls, rumors about actor’s gay affairs have been circulating for many years. And the actor just keeps adding fuel to the fire: playing gay in the movie ("Milk", "My name is Michael"), and he takes "themed" films (for example, "Interior. Leather Bar").
A few days ago the premiere of the film "King Cobra" with Franco in one of the main roles (the actor also produced the film) was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival. The film tells the story of gay star and his relationship with his producer and, as the critics write, is very hard-core.
And if earlier we had questions why Franco loves to appear in such films, kissing men, but now it's all clear.
