James Franco gets glam on the cover of 'Candy'

James Franco's acting may be subtle, but his makeup? Not so much.

The former "Freaks and Geeks" star sports lipstick, lashes and a whole lot more on the Fall-Winter cover of Candy magazine, described as "“the first transversal style magazine.”

The 32-year-old actor shot the cover - in which he wears blue eye shadow, heavy mascara, bright red lips, earrings and a choker while seductively smoking a cigarette - with celeb shutterbug Terry Richardson.

The photo shoot just might spark more rumors about Franco's sexuality, which he recently addressed in the Advocate magazine.

"Everyone thinks I'm a stoner, and some people think I'm gay because I've played these gay roles," says the star, who portrayed bisexual actor James Dean in a TNT biopic, Harvey Milk's lover in "Milk" and plays gay poet Allen Ginsberg in the upcoming film "Howl."

"That's what people think, but it's not true," says Franco. "I don't smoke pot. I'm not gay..."

    I love Franco. He's a babe and did I mention he's a babe!..I think he looks gorgeous. When I saw the cover I was saying..."wow...she looks amazing". When I realized it was FRANCO, I was in awe. Some women don't look as good as FRANCO in drag. Love this cover!

    I'm just an ignorant troll that serves no useful purpose in life. I was abused as a child and feel the only way to get attention is to be a whiney little girl on these blogs. Just ignore me because I really am stupid and don't deserve anything in life.

    as always , something like this will get misunderstood by the ignorant. He's an actor. Doing a CONCEPT photoshoot as a character is a fun acting gig. You have to create a character using the body language. Ofcourse the clothes and the make up inspire you and work up your imagination to be able to do pull it off. Great Job Franco!

      It's 'he'. It's very rude to call someone a 'he/she' unless they specifically tell you to.
