So after finally sitting down and looking at James Franco‘s resume, someone finally figured out that James plays gay. A lot. And occasionally he plays a character who has sex with Japanese body pillows. Anyway, James Franco took the time to give an eloquent, thought-out response to the question of why he likes playing boys who like boys.
“There are lots of other reasons to be interested in gay characters than wanting myself to go out and have sex with guys,” he says.
“And there are also lots of other aspects about these characters that I’m interested in, in addition to their sexuality. […] Part of what I’m interested in is how these people who were living anti-normative lifestyles contended with opposition. Or, you know what, maybe I’m just gay.” SOURCE
Yeah, feel free to raise your hand if you just jumped straight to the last part. Fuck passionate displays of empathy through the art of acting because JAMES FRANCO IS ON THE OTHER TEAM, BITCHES! Gays: 1, Straights: Actually, still doing pretty well for themselves. Fuck.
