Is actor gay or not?

The actor tells Four Two Nine magazine that he is "gay in his art".

James Franco has finally addressed the rumors surrounding his sexuality and he admits that he is "gay in his art".

The 36-year-old actor mysteriously cleared up the question that has long been asked about his personal life in an interview with himself for the March issue of Four Two Nine, the quarterly arts and culture magazine.

Playing the personas 'Straight James' and 'Gay James', one of the first questions Straight James asked was: "Are you f****** gay or what?”

His gay alter-ego replied: "Well, 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.”


The star then went on to confuse the issue, as he so often does, saying: "In the twenties and thirties, they used to define homosexuality by how you acted and not by whom you slept with.

"Sailors would f*** guys all the time, but as long as they behaved in masculine ways, they weren't considered gay.”

When asked if he expresses his true personality via social media, he said: "No. It's always felt frivolous to me, meaning I think I have a silly attitude, generally speaking, when I post things. I don't take it that seriously.

"On the other hand, it is very serious because one of the main currencies of our age is attention, and so that little number that says how many people are following me actually equates into money, and a certain type of power."

Rumours of his homosexuality have been fuelled by his roles in gay-themed movies, such as 'Milk', and the pictures he posts on social media.


The This Is The End celebrity wrapped his bizarre interview by kissing himself, of course, in the mirror.
