James Franco Opens Up On His Sexuality... Sort Of
Star interviews himself in typically baffling magazine piece...
James Franco has addressed the public speculation about his sexuality - by interviewing himself for an arty magazine piece.
The enigmatic 36-year-old star adorns the cover of the new issue of FourTwoNine magazine, and inside there's a feature in which "Straight James" and "Gay James" both comment.
Straight James asks: "Are you f**king gay or what?"
To which Gay James replies: "Well, I like to think that I'm gay in my art and straight in my life. Although, I'm also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse, and then you could say I'm straight.
"So I guess it depends on how you define gay. If it means whom you have sex with, I guess I'm straight. In the twenties and thirties, they used to define homosexuality by how you acted and not by whom you slept with.
"Sailors would f**k guys all the time, but as long as they behaved in masculine ways, they weren't considered gay."
And Straight James explained that he felt he was caught between two cultures.
"I really don't care what people think about my sexuality, and it's also none of their business. So I really don't choose to identify with my public persona.
"I am not interested in most straight male-bonding rituals, but I am also kept from being fully embraced by the gay community because I don't think anyone truly believes I have gay sex."
So now you know... or do you?
