James Franco's 'gay' admission : Actor sets the record straight about his sexuality

So, is James Franco gay or what? Rumors about the “127 Hours” actor have swirled for years. He has an offbeat persona that people can’t seem to pinpoint, and his openness with sexuality has led some to believe he’s gay.

The actor addresses his sexuality in a bizarre interview for Four Two Nine magazine between “Straight James Franco” and “Gay James Franco.”

“Let’s get substantial: are you f**king gay or what?” he asked himself, to which he 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. In the twenties and thirties, they used to define homosexuality by how you acted and not by whom you slept with. Sailors would f**k guys all the time, but as long as they behaved in masculine ways, they weren’t considered gay.”
