It’s Probably James Franco’s Fault That You All Think He’s Gay

I’m just going to let James Franco dig his crater a bit deeper here.

From Attitude (via Metro):

The straight heartthrob insists he’s accepted the question mark over his sexuality, which wasn’t helped when he volunteered to perform oral sex on a bloke in his 2011 flick The Broken Tower.

‘One of the things that’s very much part of my public image is the question of my sexuality,’ the 34-year-old conceeded, ‘it’s not something that bothers me in the slightest. It hasn’t gone away and I get asked about it from all sides. It’s partly my doing and partly not my doing.’

While the 127 Hours star insists he’s comfortable with his sexuality, he reckons it’s high time big name Hollywood stars come out despite fears gay stars can’t win straight roles.

‘I think that the people I have known who are performers who haven’t publicly come out didn’t because they’re afraid it’ll hurt their careers. And they’re afraid they won’t be able to play straight roles anymore,’ said Franco.

Methinks the lady doth protest too much, if you get my drift. Like, no man who wishes he could give a real life blowjob (and does it at every opportunity on inanimate objects)  can sit there and say he’s straight. Unfortunately, shit like this still matters to some people. I say the more the merrier – like what you like, suck what you want to suck and everyone just be happy. Just shut up about it already.
