Franco Sets The Record Straight On Gay Rumours!

By on 10 September, 2010

Former ‘Spider-Man‘ villain James Franco has taken to the pages of one of the world’s leading gay magazines to end speculation about his sexuality.

The actor, who played gay activist Scott Smith in ‘Milk‘, tells The Advocate he’s not a homosexual, despite reports to the contrary, in a revealing new article.

He says:

“Some people think I’m gay because I’ve played these gay roles… but it’s not true… I’m not gay.

“I’d tell you if I was. I guess the reason I wouldn’t is because I’d be worried that it would hurt my career. I suppose that’s the reason one wouldn’t do that… But no, that wouldn’t be something that would deter me. I’m going to do projects that I want to do.”

Franco is also keen to clear up rumours suggesting he’s “a stoner” – thanks to his drug-seller role in Pineapple Express.

He adds:

“Everyone thinks I’m a stoner… (but) I don’t smoke pot.”

Why can’t actors just do their bit without being classified the same as their roles. Are people really that dumb? Everyone knows that few gay actors actually get to play gay roles in Hollywood.. Don’t they?
