James Franco Slams 'Homophobic' Rumors of His Relationship with Scott Haze

James Franco has taken to his Instagram account to slam a report that said he is dating his roommate and good friend Scott Haze.

“GAWKER – always getting the cutting edge, homophobic scoop!!! Go see CHILD OF GOD in theaters and see me direct my live-in boyfriend, SCOTT HAZE!!! Love you SCOTT!!!!” the 36-year-old actor captioned a screencap of the Gawker article.

In the article, the site referenced several lines from a New York Times piece about the pals in which it was revealed that they are roommates and are “so close that describing them merely as friends would be a disservice.”

James and Scott have collaborated together on several projects, including the new movie Child of God.

    I can’t tell if this sleaze is joking or not. He was pretty convincing in Milk so…

    Funny thing: If they are not gay, why this rumor is homophobic?

  • T

    Pretty sure if James was gay he would have no problem admitting it. Seems quite comfortable with himself.

  • M

    Ray – I am wondering that myself, I don’t see anything homophobic at all.

  • Hmmm

    Why would two men with reasonable wealth need room mates?

    @T: I agree!

  • Anna

    Or maybe he just confirmed that the guy is in fact his boyfriend and promoted his project at the same time but idk just my opinion…

    James is not comfortable in his own skin at all.
    He’s a try hard that needs constant attention.
    He’s been hiding in plain sight for years. He’s bisexual.
    But he’s too chicken to admit it.
