The Gay Man Inside Of James Franco
If you’ve followed his career, you may have noticed a common thread. James Franco has never shied away from gay roles. He seems to have a fascination with them, and a gift of portraying them accurately. So how many gay roles has he played?
To name a few, James goes down on a guy in The Broken Tower, and is Sean Penn’s younger lover in Milk. He’s also the boyfriend of Zachary Quinto in I Am Michael.

He’s also had his hand in directing gay themed films.
In an interview with FourTwoNine magazine, Franco describes himself as gay in his art and straight in his life:
“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.” -James Franco
A man confident and open enough to just BE. An actor who dances to the beat of his own drum. Fuck labels.
Here are a few clips of Franco’s gay moments.
