Just for the record: James Franco isn’t gay. Instead the big sceen actor says he’s just often “inspired” to direct or play gay.

But once and for all, James tells The Advocate:

“Everyone thinks I’m a stoner, and some people think I’m gay because I’ve played these gay roles. That’s what people think, but it’s not true. I don’t smoke pot. I’m not gay. But on another level, there’s something in me that is able to play roles like that in a way that’s convincing.”

As for whether James perhaps secretly wants to be gay? His girlfriend, actress Ahna O’Reilly, laughs when The Advocate writer phones her and asks. “If he does, it’s news to me!” she says, adding that James’ interest in sexuality is less about homosexuality and more about boyhood, masculinity, and journeys of self-discovery.
