He’s been called Hollywood’s gayest straight man but I prefer to refer to him as “James Franco – my future husband”. No other straight actor in my opinion has been brave enough to take on the style of roles that have defined James Franco’s career. From Milk to indie-film Interior.Leather Bar., Franco has exceeded the necessary quota of one gay film required by straight actors to be considered for an Oscar nomination. This has led to persistent rumours about his sexuality.
When asked by Entertainment Weekly why he’s drawn to gay roles, Franco responded “Part of what I’m interested in is how these people who were living anti-normative lifestyles contended with opposition. Or, you know what, maybe I’m just gay.”
Born April 19, 1978 in Palo Alto, California Franco’s big break came when he was cast in the short-lived cult classic TV show Freaks and Geeks. In 2001 Franco played the role of James Dean in a television biographical film for which he received a Golden Globe Award and in 2010 starred in 127 Hours for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. Beyond acting, Franco is a published author, PhD candidate at Yale, teacher at UCLA, all-round mega babe, who’s appeared in drag and is open about his love of masturbation and weed.
At just over a minute in length, the below video is perhaps James Franco’s finest work (and it’s much hotter than any other porno featuring straight guy-on-guy action).
