James Franco Addresses His Sexuality: 'I'm Gay In My Art & Straight In My Life'
In the magazine, the 36-year-old actor interviewed himself and is represented by “gay” James and “straight” James.
“Straight” James asked himself, “Are you f–king gay or what?,” to which “gay” James replied, “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 fuck guys all the time, but as long as they behaved in masculine ways, they weren’t considered gay.”
“Straight” James also added, “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.”
