James Franco – I’m gay…
James Franco encounters regular rumours concerning his sexuality, despite going out with celebrity Ahna O’Reilly. The speculation is largely down to the movie options the actor has made as he has played several gay characters inside the past, such as Allen Ginsberg in ‘Howl’, activist Scott Smith in ‘Milk’ and poet Hart Crane in his new piece ‘The Broken Tower’.
Even so, Franco protests that just due to the fact he is fascinated by homosexual characters from unique eras, doesn’t mean he is only interested in men.
“Part of what I’m interested in is how these persons who had been living anti-normative lifestyles contended with opposition,” Franco told Entertainment Weekly. “Or, you know what, maybe I’m just gay.”
Franco finds it amusing that society is obsessed with people’s sexuality.
Nonetheless, he is troubled by the “black-and-white” way the subject is viewed, as he considers it to be a extra complex matter.
“It’s funny simply because the way that type of stuff is talked about on blogs is so black-and-white.” Franco said. “It’s all cut-and-dry identity politics. ‘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 concept that your object of affection decides your sexuality
