Due to his character choices is multiple movies, James Franco is used to hearing comments on his sexuality, and finally, the actor is commenting on the subject!
“It’s funny because the way that kind of stuff is talked about on blogs is so black-and-white…‘Is he straight or is he gay?’ Or, ‘This is your third gay movie—come out already!’ And all based on, gay or straight, based on the idea that your object of affection decides your sexuality.”
In other words, the actor is letting America know that we have freedom of speech; let’s use it and say what we think bloggers! Franco also comments on his character choices, saying that you don’t have to be gay just to play a gay character: “There are lots of other reasons to be interested in gay characters than wanting myself to go out and have sex with guys.”
“I mean, I’ve played a gay man who’s living in the ’60s and ’70s, a gay man who we depicted in the ‘50s, and one being in the ‘20s. And those were all periods when to be gay, at least being gay in public, was much more difficult. Part of what I’m interested in is how these people who were living anti-normative lifestyles contended with opposition. Or, you know what, maybe I’m just gay.”
“In some ways it’s coincidental, in other ways it’s not,” James says about his choices.
Whether it is or isn’t a coincidence however, is still up in the air – which I’m assuming the actor didn’t do on accident. So for now, Franco’s sexuality is still a mystery – happy debating!
