He's played gay men in the movies "Milk," "Howl" and the upcoming "The Broken Tower," so it's not unexpected that there is constant speculation about James Franco's sexuality.
“It’s funny because the way that kind of stuff is talked about on blogs is so black-and-white,” Franco, who is dating actress Ahna O'Reilly, tells Entertainment Weekly.
“It’s all cut-and-dry identity politics. ‘Is he straight or is he gay?’ Or, ‘This is your third gay movie — come out already!’ And all based on, gay or straight, based on the idea that your object of affection decides your sexuality.”
The 32-year-old "127 Hours" star – who is also planning a biopic about gay "Rebel Without a Cause" actor Sal Mineo — says the reason he has played so many homosexual characters is simple: They are great roles.
"There are lots of other reasons to be interested in gay characters than wanting myself to go out and have sex with guys,” he explains. “I mean, I’ve played a gay man who’s living in the '60s and '70s, a gay man who we depicted in the '50s, and one being in the '20s. And those were all periods when to be gay, at least being gay in public, was much more difficult. Part of what I’m interested in is how these people who were living anti-normative lifestyles contended with opposition."
But Franco teases that he also might have another motive: "You know what, maybe I’m just gay.”
Yes, He is gay already!
No way! but I believe he's gay...
why is it when some plays a murderer no one suspects him of being a murderer in real life? jake who ever played a gay guy in that cowboy movie..is he gay too?
The james franco everytime music is loud, it's just that Gosling was cast as the inspiration for new works.
I was just thinking the very same thing. yawn
I believe that actors go to hell. Because they partake the sins what God asked not to touch. I am glad that I am not actor. If I were, God would have punished me after I am dead and will be judged and then will be asked to go hell. God is very highly strict. Some jobs are bad and some jobs are good and decent.
Tried my hand at reviewing games online a few years ago; couldn't keep up with all the games and hardware tho
your gay there's no maybe
He is an actor.
Do you think Alan Alda is a doctor b/c he played one on TV
Could Christopher Reeve fly b/c he palyed Superman - obviously not, too soon?
Is Frank Langella a Republican b/c he played Nixon
Is Anne Hathaway loose in real life b/c she takes her shirt off in a lot of movies - I hope so
If you are gay and you have had a hard time b/c of being gay - you really need to stop looking for Hollywood actors to make your life better
I don't see the appeal of this guy. He always looks oily and greasy, like he needs a bath...
Gay means happy. So James takes on the roles about men who like men. Actors only play characters. What you see on the screen is not their own life. People are always judged by morons nothing new.
Get rid of that mustache and you'd probably stop getting asked so often.
Maybe he's suggesting that we shouldn't give a rat's ass about his personal life.
People get offended too easily.
James Franco is gay and is my boyfriend, he just doesn't know about it yet.
"as long as they are not bothering me and mine"???????? we gays say the same thing about you straight people. You are not as cool as you are trying to make yourself out to be. We really have no desire to bother YOU people. Give us our legal rights, end violent gay bashing and extend common respect ....stop bothering me and mine in the gay community,"
TO THIS: whether your gay or straight, displays of public "affection" bother most decent people! Give us our legal rights, what kind of crap is that! Stop shoving "GAY Rights" down America's throats! I am not a hater of gay people, just jerks! But, I have issues with "gay rights"
Jesus likes h0m0ph0bes and will accept them as long as they ask forgiveness for their ignorance.
Jesus also would say stuff like................................suck it!!
I am from the "show me " state........................
Observation #1: "Anti-normative"? Someone is really buying into the bs grad-school culture.
Observation #2: Love the people who click a link to 'James Franco:Maybe I'm gay", and then say they don't care. Obviously you do, in some way or another. Lack of self-awareness is the least appealing trait in any person.
Who cares. What somebody does in their own house is absolutely none of my business
Perhaps my weiner in his mouth will let him decide. Open wide big boy.
Get out of my way...I saw him first. He's mine. MINE. :)
@ Jon Mon – Well that's funny. I'm straight and I'd do him.....of course I'm female so that's the one difference between you and I huh ? lol !
Gay, straight, bi... who cares? Unless you're sleeping with the person (and perhaps even then) it's really none of your business. The stars I find laughable are the ones who flaunt straight relationships but are really gay instead (yes, you, Tom Cruise).
DEFFINITELY NOT GAY!
I thought he was funny...let's not take it too serious.
I think the more relevant question is "who cares?"
James Franco is a great actor – whether he plays gay or straight, who cares
andt he sure is a good looking man – that's for sure
As a gay man, I appreciate his acting ability but I'll be honest... he is great eye candy as well
James Franco is great eye candy – heck he's very cute – but what this does underscore is that somehow the good looking, even "butch" gay men out there can't somehow play gay parts. That's very sad. What if only black actors played "white" parts (parts where the people were obviously historical figures who were Caucasian)? What if we were back in "Merry 'Ole England" where women couldn't act? Men played women in drag! It's absurd somehow that James Franco deals with the gay moniker because we should encourage actors who are gay to play gay parts, not have straight actors playing the parts because they're challenging.
Gossip mongers who worry so much about who's "gay" are gay.
If we follow that logic we would wonder if Michael C. Hall is really a serial killer, or if Tom Cruise is really in the military.
@Debra Bunch – you DO know that it's not the real Jan Michael Vincent posting, right? I hope so, 'cos I'm also from Georgia and people like you and the folks the national news generally show after a tornado has blown their trailer away are where we get that redneck idiot label. Thanks a lot.
As far as James Franco goes, who cares, gay, straight, whatever. Peoples' lives are their own and other people need to worry about themselves and their own problems, not try to straighten out everyone else (no pun intended). Bible believers need to reread those passages about the splinter in your neighbor's eye vs. the plank in your own and about not judging lest you be judged. Get out of Leviticus, people!!
Real news please. Over the weekend I was with my wife; helping out with interior decorating. Maybe Im gay. sheesh.
but even if he was, he still is a terrific actor and I admire him for HIS WORK, nothing else.
Best gay comment ever stated was by Trey Parker, creator of south park, on Charlie Rose asking about a political affiliation:
Charlie: Why is it so hard to answer if you're a libertarian? It's like saying, are you..?
Trey: ...It's like, are you gay? It's like, a little. [everybody laughs] On a Friday night.. if there's no chicks around– sure!
not to be rude, but i have noticed most handsome men are gay....and that makes me think why are the good ones ALWAYS taken???????
Who cares if this gay, I mean guy, I mean gay, is gay except for his boyfriend.
His need to tell the public is unfortunate and the reading, while I have only read
the headline, is a total waste of time.
And this is my business why?
J.F. is being sarcastic, so he's NOT gay... Unleeeeess... he knows that, so then the joke is on us because he IS gay. Oh, wait... J.F. is being CLEVER; he would assume that we KNOW he's being "wittay," so he's NOT GAY. Just bend over, already, Franco- my head hurts- let's find out if we're both gay.
Well, then there are people who are attracted to BOTH genders.
Whatever floats your boat I guess. :)
James and his hot girlfriend need to do a 3some with me to determine how gay he is.
I don't see how he gets all the press. I think he's fugly!
Rock Hudson Played lots of straight roles so he must have been straight then?
James, Maybe you've been brain washed!
Seriously, you guys... you're taking this "maybe I'm gay" thing a little too seriously. He's not gay. If you take an objective look at his career, it's clear this man just loves the art of acting. He says he picks good characters and it seems like he likes the "internal conflict" of gay characters. This man has had a string of decent movies, yet unlike a lot of these top actors we see these days, has made some interesting career choices. He went and did a stint on General Hospital a year or two ago, went back to UCLA to study- it's clear this guy just loves what he does, wants to be top-notch and isn't afraid to make a few uncomfortable choices to get there. Hats off... if only all of us could love our careers as much!
Oh, and by the way- step off the gay crap, everyone. Gay, straight- whatever. Let's all move on and read the article for what it is.
James is the man. I mean who cares if he is gay or straight or an alien. BTW, the sky is not blue, its black. it just appears blue because of the way our atmosphere filters light. Hmm, maybe James is like the sky...he looks like a white guy in photos and on film but he is really black.
I wonder if he really is gay, funny I was just talking about him with my sister-in-law...it seems my Niece is in LOVE with him & was hoping to meet him while at a RED carpet event...oh well, to each his own...I didn't even know who he is...I'm not a Star lover, couldn't care less. so it's a funny coincidence...
Gay, straight, who cares...he's my personal fave. He's smokin' hot and a great actor and always will be. xoxo JF :-)
Maybe all that education is getting to him. I hope he finds himself soon, it doesn't matter either way.
Can he act? That's all that really matters if you ara an actor.
The public should really just focus on performances instead of the actor's private life. That word private used to mean something once, maybe it should again.
Gay or not–I don't care. Franco rocks.
james doesn't care what ppl/media think, otherwise they would be all over him. so if you don't care ppl will leave you be.
And maybe people should stop caring what others do in their bedroom.
Uhm isn't this the whole point of being an ACTOR? He's just doing his job by playing characters. Why are people making such a big deal about him playing gay roles?! There's a lot of actors out there who are gay that play straight characters(ex. Neil Patrick Harris). Is it just me or did this article deem pointless?
Wow. Well I guess all I could add to this is that it isnt our place to judge. We will all meet our maker in the end and He will decide whats right and wrong. Personally I dont think God hates gays or anyone else for that matter. The God I believe in loves us all and as long as we treat each other with love inatead of malice in our hearts I think we got a pretty good chance of hangin out in heaven. Now if u are a hate filled person that does nothing but spread ur negative bs around, I dont know, u just might not end up where u think.
The fish and the birds are dying because of James Franco! LOL What's next, Liza Minelli stops Global Warming?
No bible thumper here..just a someone who ran across a bunch of fools who actually blog on here dailey. I was tryn to get a reaction from a couple idiots who fell for it! Fools get a life gay or striaght just get one..Lol
The TRUE idiot is the one without the integrity to be honest about themself in their comments.
Everyone is inherently bi in nature. The doctoral experts have revealed this to us many times before. Since there is a masculine as well as a feminine side to everyone for both male and female, that accounts for the attraction sometimes to a member of their own gender. So, don't think its a strict Straight or Gay orientation. It isn't and one's feelings sometimes take the best of one it has been said and that would account for the attraction to the same gender.
Speaking of ignorance.....Aren't you quite the idiot?!!!
What a MO you are!!...
What a loser....
Yeah...like you're NOT?
Get rid of the Trash Stache!
I hate flame bait articles – Headlines! James Franco admits he's gay! *gasp* oh wait, no he was just joking around, ha made you look.
God is probably far busier with the HUGE number of hypocritical Christians who commit adultery according to the Bible by remarrying.
Maybe nobody really cares.
For everybody that is complaining about this being "news" or not, you need to take a look at what section it is in...it is in ENTERTAINMENT so it doesn't have to have anything to do with real news
This is exactly the kind of tabloid reporting that drives me crazy. To lead with this headline is stupid when after reading the article the main point of it is not at all that he is gay, but that he finds playing these characters who happen to be gay interesting due to their struggle and obstacles that they have faced. I wouldn't care if he were gay, but he clearly isn't... and that was a ironic statement that he made and I am sure the journalist knew this and well it was probably the bosses at CNN who decided to make this the headline. So irritating how journalism in this country distorts everything.
why can't all of us just be happy and gay?
Because ,if your daddy was gay you wouldn't be here.
Adults shouldn't need to LEARN about the birds and the bees. Education would help so you won't say such an uneducated thing again.
your country is simply so moronically fearful, Booooo......
the media is boring. of all the fantastic work James Franco has done, this is the best CNN could print? puullleeaaassee...
He should come to my house for a few days and we'll figure it out!
No, he's not just gay. He's gay for pay.
Yeah, but the real question is, where is your birth certificate Franco?
Well played, James!
Oh no!!! This will change our lives forever!!! *sarcasm*
Do you think he is or isn't? I think he just likes to toy with the media, as well he should.
Why not stay with Fauxnews since they obviously have lower standards?
I could only wish. If Franco ever wants to explore that theory, have him call me! Uunio@yahoo.com
Meh – so what if he is? He makes a good point – people are really hung up on labels.
People didn't read the full article, where at the very end he made a funny comment...He's a very funny guy and he did a great job hosting SNL...it was just a funny comment on his part...get over yourselves, people!
Got to give him credit, that was an all around great answer to the question.
Where all have some gay in us that we should face. Like, I would do Wendy Williams even though HE is a terrible talk show host. :)
WHO CARES ?????
I don't care if people are gay or straight.....embrace who you are and be kind to others.....that's all we need to do!
I thought being gay was the cool thing these days
Most people concentrate on and mimic what they most admire. And no one is forcing those roles on him. I detect a hint of mint and my money says he's light in the loafers.
If James Franco is gay thats ok and if he is not gay that's fine too. He is one heck of a good actor.
If Jame Franco thinks he's "Gay" has anyone asked him if he's gotten his "Booty Bumped" if he has then he's "Gay"
Love him! Just awesome.
He's great and I think he plays a cooler kind of gay person than some of the real ones playing gay people.
Hilarious! I hope he gets many many more great roles!
It's not a stretch to play a g*y person. Perhaps he takes the roles that are easiest for him. Think about it. It would take very little energy and creativity to add a lisp and some feminine (sorry) hand gestures to the Green Goblin II character he played in the Spider-man films. Unless the scenes involved sechsual activity, you're just changing a dialect and your mannerisms. That's not acting, that's mimicking. I'm not g-bashing, just telling it like it is.
Wll CNN I guess you hooked me in a small way. Shame on you for the story headline link as, James Franco: "Maybe I'm gay". I thought, "what bull", so I read the story. That's the last thing he says and you're totally taking it out of contexet with your headline.
Not with the mustache you're not ;)
I'd still do him.
of course he's straight. Hollywood doesn't allow gay actors to play gay rolls.
not that there's anything wrong with that
It would seem more likely that he plays gay men in movies because he fits the stereotypical gay "look". It makes him more believable as a gay man to the general public. So in a sense, we put him in gay roles and then accuse him of being gay. or He is gay and thinks this is kinda funny.
Only James Franco himself would know if he is gay or not. He can show himself as the most macho or the most effeminate however the truth resides in the mind, not in what he says or displays. It's nobody's business to know whether he is gay or not except you're in a relationship with him of course.
Man, you do just one dude and......
That's good news for the gays.
Dang....I thought he was a straight uber villian who had a predisposition for self mutilation. Now I am so confused!
Maybe he just has a gay agent.
Why is this news?
he's gayer than a 3 dollar bill...!!!
Gay or not I would so totally do James Franco! Plus, he seems like he is a nice guy, very chill. stop hatin' ppl! and let him be! :) peace!
who cares what side of the street he walks on? what's up with his mustache?my 13 year old has more of one than he does!
who cares who is gay or not anymore america is the new Sodom anyhow,it was better when you were in the closet.
"May be I'm gay" is all ready being used by Tosh.0. He needs to find something new.
whether he is or isn't, Ahna O'Reilly, is HOT !!!!
Maybe he is, or maybe he is.
2 Timothy 3:4 AMP
[They will be] treacherous [betrayers], rash, [and] inflated with self-conceit. [They will be] lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God.
Maybe I'm gay? Uh..no. you are gay and you need Jesus Christ.
He can set you free from your self destructing ways and give you peace and hope. Theirs no hope in a gay lifestyle, just depression, about 80 "partners" then eventually A.I.D.S. oh yeah, then hell. Be gay if you like those things. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
i was gay. why else do you think i hung out w/ all those apostles. plus...we were all wearing robes so i mean talk about easy access. last supper? more like LAST RAVE, oh yeah, raise the roof boyfriend! you want to serve me? get me an appletini and some comfortable sandals that compliment a decent pedicure.
We will see who laughs longer...
hey wretch...maybe you should grab a dictionary before you serve the lord. it's "REFER" you six-toed, possum dodging, straw chewing, narrow-minded idiot.
And everyone will hate you because you are my followers. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
I'll give you credit though,, the "you six-toed, possum dodging, straw chewing, narrow-minded idiot." comment actually made me laugh out loud!
wretch, nobody hates you. we laugh at you b/c you're ignorant. your spelling (outside of what you can parrot from the bible) shows us that. what do you have? a year of high school maybe? it's kind of the way one watches little children make mistakes b/c they don't know any better. only problem here is that, unlike so many children, it's doubtful you'll become any smarter/less ignorant.
you want to talk about hate? read your original post. like most bible thumpers, you're a hypocrite and cherry pick which portions of that book apply to you.
sorry possum-boy...you'll be the last one in heaven since you can't accept your fellow man for who they are.
pick up a science book and stay away from sharp objects and firearms. b/c i don't hate you, i don't want you to hurt yourself or others either.
come on, show me something that proves you can think for yourself. i bet you can't. sad. you also have my pity as well as my laughter.
Franco eats his own poop
most of u r gays
Who freaking cares !
James, you can be anything you want to be... I love you, regardless.
His mustache says "put it here" to me butt maybe I'm gay?
Loser twit.....You are such a freak...
Idiots, can't they tell he was being sarcastic?
He's good when he plays straight characters too. Maybe he's just a good actor! In which case, we may never find out whether he's gay...unless he marries, and only then by the gender of his spouse. In any case, it's really none of our business what he's like off-screen.
Yet another misleading CNN headline. It's not even an exact quote, despite the quotation marks. Such fine journalism.
He's just saying that for the publicity.
What does it matter if someone is gay or not!!!! The person is the same person, either way!!!!!
Me thinks you protest too much...
Are you referring to James? I don't hear him protesting. I hear him answering the questions of the media. If the population would lose it's fascination with all things gay, the press would stop asking. Then he could stop "protesting."
What a waste of sperm you are
Way to mislead people into clicking on your pointless story CNN
All that matters is that he's happy and has continued success as an incredibly talented actor. In this day and age, it's wonderful to see celebrities being honest with themselves and their fans.
Demodogg.com. Great site to get your music and band noticed by record producers!
So... does that mean that gays & lesbians that play straight people in TV/Movies are really straight??? Funny, I thought they were called actors.
Don't care one way or another. Just wish he'd stay OFF General Hospital. He's very boring and annoying. Thank goodness for the FF button!
He's not gay, but his boyfriend is :)
But seriously folks.....who gives a crap but the idiots out there.
If James Franco is gay, does that mean he can finally shave that pathetic excuse for a mustache?
This just in.....Michael Jackson liked to sleep and play "rubba rubba" with little boys...unless the "adult alarm" sounded. Suprising, I know. Wacko is rotting in hell right now.
HAHAHAHA (my deliciously evil laugh)
I guess as long as the sun still shines and the earth is still spinning, James Franco is who he is! Wait....maybe he's not gay! And that's one to grow on!
Well quit looking in the mirror already!!
Every man in America can be gay for all I care....I certainly won't mind being the only straight one left.
Say it ain't so! Well if it is.... Please give me the change to try to change you back to straight... MmmmMmmm....
Hate the mustache.
Love the actor.
Disappointed he's making a movie about lightly talented Sal Mineo.
Listen! So many male stars whom people once thought were totally Straight have come out as Gay. So, what's the big problem? Surely, many, many more are due to come out and shock ya. And just look at the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" former policy. It's been Repealed because they're all getting the message that there's nothing wrong with that orientation even for servicemen and women! And look at all the Gay Marriage states now in the U.S.A. So, what's your problem! Can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen!
insult our intelligence. You're CNN, not TMZ.
Lookin' in the mirror again, dearie?! HAHAHAHAHA!!
Who the hell is James Franco???
he's a gay actor
todd you cracked me up!
Why all the anger? Trying to prove something? A person who truly knows what he or she is doesn't have to go around making sarcastic, derogatory comments about others just to prove he or she is different. That is, unless it hits too close to home!
Shhhh!! Don't tell the Conservatives! They are just looking for something like this to spend all their time on instead of fixing the real problems this country faces. This is JUST what they would consider a Top Priority issue to spend month after month tackling. One-track mind you know and little else.
Hah, he slept with tons of girls while at UCLA. Not gay...
This just in...Wesley Snipes announces...."Maybe I'm black." Wow...who knew?
Do you realize how incredibly lucky you are that they don't have a minimum IQ requirement here for comments from people like you?
Why don't women need a watch?
Because there is a clock on the stove!
I admit I didn't even read this post ("Maybe I'm gay") I'm so damn tired of James Franco. This guy and his people stuff him down our throats. No matter where you turn, he's there...endless features in magazines, now–hosting the Oscars. There's no escaping him. He plays a character on some show called Franco (how daring!) Please, enough already. My prediction: he'll try his luck at being the male Lady Gaga...meats suits, you name it. Enough
He's Kidding... Duh! ilike it
Congratulations! I'm happy, too!
He had some excellent points and seems to have an insightful/postmodern view....yet CNN chose the headline to be the quote with the least substance (and very likely said sarcastically)- way to contribute to the very issue he's talking about being frustrated with, CNN
gay oh no who would thunk it lol,with all those good looks n charm.....not
Definately gay.....just sayin
We are all a little gay!What bearing does his preference have on us?Yall be jive!
maybe I'm straight
cute! he's got a great sense of humor
im sorry but when he smiles with that mustache he almost looks like baba booey
shut the .... up u stupid gays if everyone were gay then how long do u actually think the world would last
If all the world was gay, there'd probably be fewer wars. There wouldn't be so many males trying to prove to themselves how "macho" they would like to be.
Nah we arent going to shut up, not for you or anyone else...If the whole world were gay it would be much more peaceful, less wars, more love, more art, more green....
really? ever heard of IVF? lol oh the wonders of modern science. now if only we could do smthg about all the idiots running around....
Heh-heh, I wouldn't worry too much about this. James Franco is a master of having fun with the media (he's been on enough magazine covers during the past year to convince me of that), so just take his comments with a grain of salt and return his wink with one of your own. :)
And if he is gay, SO WHAT?
i want to eat his hair
because now my wife will be sad and I'll have to comfort her : )
NO WERE ALL NOT A LITTLE GAY, but we've seen men before date woman and are still gay. Rock Hudson for one.
You sound real gay 4 saying that bull sh......, real men dont talk like that.....i'm just saying.....
I would smoke his cigar.
Why the are u guys hating on michael jackson! He really was the King Of Pop! If all u guys do is hate You should go to hell. See don't like it do u yeah u go to hell cuz ur gay who cares!!!! If he's gay he's gay who cares its his choice and u are childish for making a big fuss over a sarcastic comment!!! I thought it was pretty funny. Also gay people can be some of the nicest people. I'm straight but i know alot of nice gay people and no one makes fun of them. U all just have very small brains.
he's gross either way
First,one must know who this person is. Then, one must care about who he is.
It is amazing how someone from obscurity can make a couple of "movies" (if one can call them that), and suddenly they're hot stuff.
What a pitiful culture!
The important question... Have you ever lit your own fart?
I am lighting my own farts now. And I just burned my ass.
He is losing his touch with reality. Just spin the totem already
Tupac was gay. Eazy E was gay. And I'm pretty sure Kelsy Grammer is gay, just like most of you. Sick.
Yes, you are here to anger us. But I bet you anger yourself as well. It must be a hard life to go around condemning others as sick, when you so desperately wish you were free to be like them.
Apparently you have
National dept? Where would I find that department? Learn to spell or stay off your keyboard.
Wrong is wrong and that behavior is WRONG. Lust of flesh isn't nothing new. But to suggest it being anything right about it is wrong. Sin is sin.Like it or not.
Posting mean things about people on the Internet is also wrong, but you do that. Judge not, lest you be judged. And I judge you as a meanie. Plus, you are kind of sad.
He must have had the desire to hold one in his mouth( he must be gay)
He's a bit gay...
Does the color yellow make him sad?
not with that hideous mustache he's gay... no way
Don't know about gay, but you do look stoned in that picture, James.
Look at that moustache. He's totally gay.
He isn't gay. I used to work on the set of the Jay Leno show and I am pretty sure he was messing around with Barbara Mandrell.
He gave me head at lagoon lounge in Bakersfield in 1997 so I think he is def bi atleast
Lagoon Lounge? Bakersfield? '97? Head? No man that was me, sorry about that. I lost my contact and hi-jinks ensued.
Well franco I wonder what would make you think that?????
But the pro gay lobby has been teaching me that being gay is something one is born with. I'm so confused. Maybe I am gay too.
I have heard from an expert that its to complicated to say your born gay ,thier are aparently other things like influence, and many other factors . Please don't ask for his name like most of us my memory for names is short at best . You may find him by doing a search on the computer .
This is the most misleading header ever. If he's obviously kidding about being gay, and the main point of what he was saying is that there's a lot of good things to be found in the gay community, why would you start your article in the most misleading way possible? Shame, CNN.
I have enough to worry about with out trying to figure out if he is gay or not , lets move on and let him woory about it.
the bible is crying right now. there is therapy to reverse this. lets not make bad choices. we all must go to heaven.
I wonder if there's therapy for bigots like you.
Sadly people don't recognize good sarcasm when they see it
it was a pretty ggod day. not nearly as cruddy as most. we sure hope yours really was happy. if your reading this you are alive and you rock :)
He was AMAZING in "james dean"...really early in his career, and so good! I think his response was funny and smart!
"Oh, He's going to hell"
I'm actually impressed by the lack of "oh he's going to hell" comments...James is truly a talented and real person, funny as heck too! Check him out on funnyordie, you will die laughing!!!! (James Franco acting class)
Well honey if your gay your gay,dont let anyone put you down and make you feel different about yourself,I Still Love You,and you are an wonder actor,so continue being you and do nt worry about what everyone else says
Really? There are people in the world who really, truly, actually still think that way?
Simply curious: Are you retarded.
Also, i doubt Franco is gay, but congrats to him on a great performance in 127 Hours. I would have been actually been proud of CNN if they had posted an article on THAT instead.
Thats who runs america gays and republicans why is anyone shocked
And don't forget the liberal media, the cabal corporations, jews, NRA and the Masons – they run the country too!
Wish people would stop worrying who is gay. Who is sleeping with each other. All the other trash on every t.v. in this nation. WORRY ABOUT OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN!!Do YOU or ANY one REALLY care
Well put. Live and let live
Who cares if you gay. why Rock Hudson he was gay but he was a good actor. just be urself as long as u are happy.
And this idiot is hosting the Academy Awards this year? I saw him on Letterman and he is one of the most incredibly BORING people I have ever seen on TV. What WERE they thinking when they picked him? Easy call not to watch that program this year!
Well put Mr.Franco
Guess all the strait prople want is to stone all the gays to make them self look like christians I bet allthose christians never look at the dirt under their on beds
Shirley, I understand your confusion, and you're probably not reading this, but some Christians give others a bad name by being hypocritical. Also, don't take me wrong and think that I'm trying to diss you, because I'm not dissing anyone, but Christians never claim to be perfect human beings.
Silly child, I am the kingdom of heaven.
mr. franco, don't make statements like that if it is not true. The way the media and people are these days, anyone who makes a statement like that, even in jest, will have the media and everyone else hounding you for a definate yes or no answer. Even if you answer no, nobody will believe you because everyone will just believe what they want to believe anyway.
I'm just saying, inorder to avoid all this unwanted attention just don't say things like that if it is not true.
Um... did you read it? He didn't say he IS gay. Or is not gay, for that matter. He said "maybe I'm just gay".
Mostly because it doesn't matter. "Maybe" isn't much of a statement at all. Relax, Marc. Really. It's not his fault the word "gay" makes people freak out. I don't think the replies to this article are going to even be seen by him. It's really fine.
gays will never enter the kingdom of heaven
And you think that all the people preaching hate are going there?
And neither will you, in spite of your silly name, because heaven doesn't exist. So what?
DAMN YOU! You ruined the no religious comments streak. Jerk
Judge not. Meaning the way you judge people is the way you'll be Juded in heaven. Maybe u or I will be left out.
'Cause that's not where the party is!!'
We go to risd, aren't we all gay?
E5150: I would be happy if all close-minded haters would be deported to Antartica. We all have the right to choose how we live our lives and just because you do not agree with it, it does not give you the right to be disrespectful, hateful, and rude to anyone else. I am not gay, but wish they were treated equally, because they are.
Did you read your post before you pushed the button? Honestly, talk about disrespectful and rude.....
......not that there's anything wrong with that!
Just wanted to say if he's gay I'm glad he haPpy I go around being gay and happy all day
You are what you are and it is what it is. Enjoy your life. You only have one life to live so live it to it's fullest.
OMG, how many cliches and euphemisms can u fit in one reply?
To "My Name is Mud"- You made me laugh SO hard with your comment about all the cliches, etc., that the tea I'm drinking came out my nose. Good job!
all of u are dumb u all love him bcause u keep talking about him so all of u are gay wow
wot kind a engish u b speaking, ids dat a new language ya got dere?
If you are happy, why not be it? Don't give damn abt what else says abt you. You do so well for your life, just be yourself and be the happiest guy in the world. I've been it for so many years and have had a beautiful and happy life and home with my loved one for going to be 38 years in March. So, be yourself and happy!
He's definitely not gay... That was a sarcastic remark.
I heard that Jan Michael Vincent was gay at one time.
ummm apparently you do, since you took the time to read the article and make a comment!
James your GAY!! jus admit it! so we can all move on!
He can do me any day!
I have information on Jeff in NJ.
What... he lives in NJ?
Best response to an irrelevant question I've ever heard. Good for you.
I think the key phrase was there are a lot of other reasons, which means that was also one.
Who cares! This guy is a fab actor. My God, he can play anything. Here's a thought. Do you think that characters who are gay, might just happen to have some interesting stories to tell? I just think he likes to laugh at himself, and takes roles that are incredible to do.
All I can say, if you are my dear...you have made many women sad, and quite a few men quite happy.
banasy: 'Maybe I don't care'
if he should play any gay character.., it should be james dean... yeah he played him before, but not as the real james dean, who was gay... perfect role for him
I agree. He would be great in a biopic of James Dean!
Gosh I hope so. My fantasy come true. He is so hot!
"Rebel WithOUT a Cause"- It's a fluffy article out of nothing news worthy or related, but it still should be proof read.
"[James Franco] the '127 Hours' star – is also planning a biopic about gay 'Rebel With a Cause' actor Sal Mineo."
No proofreading required in this case. The movie Franco mentioned is a biopic of Sal Mineo, a "Rebel" costar. Hence, a "Rebel With a Cause." Two different things entirely.
One thing about it. He does have nice hair.
He has very nice eyes. And it seems he's got at least 50 IQ points on 99% of Hollywood. He and Johnny Depp are great actors who are also genuinely beautiful. I'm sure I'm not by a long shot the only straight guy who thinks so, though fewer, alas, would probably be willing to publicly SAY so. When and if straight men can openly admire the looks of other men as unabashedly as many straight women openly admire the looks of other women, well, it won't exactly be the promised land, but it'll be a lot better than the uptight society we live in now.
there are alot of very successful and happy gay people. it shouldnt matter if you are or arent. you are you :)
Yea Yea he's gay! I do declare. Frankly Scarlet, I don't give a damn.
if you are dont worry about it. people are people. some folks will treat you bad, but they probabbly would anyhow. As long as your happy you shouldnt even worry about it.
Another cnn headline!!
If he's gay I will cry.
If he is gay, I am happy!
Why? Because being gay is so horrible? It's not (although some people still try to make it horrible for gays). Or is it because you thought you were going to date him? Probably not.
I think Cheats was being funny.. like Girls who say the best guys are either married or Gay. Dont take what she said seriously.
Yeah, what MikeMazzla said. People are sooooo touchy.
I'm not gay, but I'm unabashed about saying I have had a man crush on James Franco ever since I saw him in 'Milk'. Just the way it is, ya know?
Then you are the hottest gay for me!
interesting and unique articles
Sounds hot to me.
Babiyaga is a lovely name. Seriously. I am not being sarcastic. I have no sense of humor in that sense. Zmei gorynych – koschei bessm....
How is that Hut treating you?
Well James, maybe you should come sleep with me and find out for sure.
You do or you wouldn't fake indifference.
I don't give a hoot, and that's not false indifference. Just because I don't care doesn't mean I'm lying.
And maybe the sky is blue.
I think we're all a little gay...
That was funny, Franco! He has a sense of humor, why can't the rest of you? If he were really gay, he wouldn't be saying stuff like, "You know what, maybe I’m just gay.” For the love of god, can't we just get past all this gay stuff? Who the hell cares who's sleeping with whom? As long as they are not bothering me or mine, they should be free to love who they want.
Indeed. Seems trivial. Oh and did I mention trite?
So now that he's gotten this off his chest...he's feeling gay. He's also singing.."I feel pretty...I feel witty..I feel pretty & witty & bright."
Don't worry James...I think I'm gay as well. rraawwwrr
hahaha, now THERE's a name I haven't seen since 1986. Airwolf and The Mechanic. Jan Michael Vincent lol... where's that guy now, dead?
Maybe this article is gay.
@Shane who said "As long as they are not bothering me or mine..." after he makes all these pro-gay comments. How condescending can you be? Bothering you? Sorry idiot, but gay people aren't below you like you're clearly implying. Nice try faking the tolerance.
if you're the person I think you are, we know for a fact that YOU are. And the sky is not always blue, in fact it's not blue at all it just appears to us blue.
why can't all of us just be happy and gay?
Maybe he is just a man comfortable with all of his emotions, with nothing to prove. The under 30s population are far more secure than those of us 50, 60 and older who have bought into macho nonsense.
I'm not dead, but I think I'm gay too.
I'm straight... but I'd do him.
"as long as they are not bothering me and mine"???????? we gays say the same thing about you straight people. You are not as cool as you are trying to make yourself out to be. We really have no desire to bother YOU people. Give us our legal rights, end violent gay bashing and extend common respect ....stop bothering me and mine in the gay community, okay captain Mcstraight pants?
To Pat and @Shane: Lighten up!
I was gay once.
why is it when some plays a murderer no one suspects him of being a murderer in real life? jake who ever played a gay guy in that cowboy movie..is he gay too?
Maybe who cares
Hi, I am from Statesboro GA. Do you still come over to Scarboro at all? My niece helped you in the emergency room several years ago. I saw you many years ago when you were here filming "Buster and Billy". I lived and grew up about 1.5 miles from the old school where alot of the filming was done. I stood right behind you but was too shy to ask for an autograph. Always enjoyed your acting and you were good on the eyes also. Lots of water has run under the bridge from those days.
@Debra Bunch..... Uh, who the heck are you talking to??? James Franco? You DO know that he didn't write this article, right? And you don't actually think he's going to find this article AND your comment, do you? And if your niece told you the name of a patient she helped in an emergency then she broke the law. Ever heard of the HIPAA/privacy rules? So anyway, whenever you read an online article about a celebrity do you always post a comment to him/her?
To Pat and @Shane... STHU, why be so hateful. I'm sure he meant no disrespect, but you had to flip it into something it's not. Live and let live was my interpretation.
It goes to show that saying anything regarding gays offends them. If you don't agree with every little thing they say, you're automatically a hater, or a closet case because you are in denial. In other words, it's all about them. Yuck.
You tell 'em, James! Tell those nosy sacks of putrefying feces to go eff themselves and mind their own business.
either way- i still love you. how can one not? :)
Who is this guy, and why should I care?
Hey Debra Bunch! Oh, dear me. I'll never forget that trip to the emergency room...and your neice was such an angel. I hook up with some young buddies of mine in Scarboro 4 or 5 times a year and we spend the night beating on the bongos. Golly, I sure wish you would have asked me for my autograph all those years back. Then, like now...I've always been a collector of aquaintences and would have loved to have added yours to me pile. xxoo, JMV
I used to be Gay, but then I got a job.....
I know u r but, what am I?
Heck, I used to be Gay, but then I got a job.....
