James Franco is BlackBook Bold


James Franco looks hot hot hot in the new December/January issue of BlackBook Magazine.

The 30-year-old actor, who plays the lover of Harvey Milk (Sean Penn) in Gus van Sant’s highly biopic Milk, speaks candidly about his career and his studies at Columbia and NYU. Franco, who wrote directed and starred in 2005’ Ape, a film about a closeted gay writer, discussed playing another gay character in Milk:

On working with Sean Penn: “After we wrapped up Milk, Sean Penn said to me, ‘I’m going to have to break up with you now.”

On his fave NYC hang-outs: “Bungalow 8, Smith and Mills and Chanterelle.”

On his outlook on gay relationships: “As soon as I got out of high school, I was like, I don’t care if anybody’s gay. It doesn’t matter. Doing Milk, I don’t know if it broadened my mind at all. I like to think that I was as open as I could be at that point.”

This movie was beyond good! James and Sean have to get Oscar nominations! James more than Sean, he was flat out brilliant! :)

# 7

Yeah for James Franco. I hope because he’s portraying a gay character doesn’t mean he’s Hollywood worthy…He’s already worthy…I can’t wait to see the movie. Love him…these pics are great! Thanks JJ.

He was great in Freaks and Geeks. I’m looking forward to this movie. It looks like I’ll need a hanky though. =P

Very nice, Jared!

I heart James!

I LOVE HIS BIG SMILE, when his eyes disappear… swoon.

Too bad he’s not smiling in any of these pics, but hot nonetheless.

LOL comment #4 . . .ME TOO :) he is gay then


Damn he is so hot!. This is the guy jared is suppose keep posting on.

Much better looking than Leo DiCrapio.

Hottie and he can actually act make u apperciate his hotness even more!

waow, i have been keeping my pervy eye on him since freaks & geeks, and he’s getting hotter and hotter.

Uh…Just a little FYI – Franco didn’t play a closeted homosexual character in The Ape. Who read THAT into the film?? I also don’t know WHY people assume he’s not straight after his MILK role. No one seemed to think that about Penn or Ledger or Glynenhall or other straight actors who took on such roles.I may be disappointed in James’ film choices to play these characters but I’m still smitten with the guy. He’s unbelievably stunning! His smile could light up a room!

Jmes Franco is nice,smart, sexy & hot…

He’s so pretty.

And smart and funny!

Too bad he’s gay.

Oh well, another one bites the dust. He’s pretty hot though.
