James Franco an American actor and filmmaker was suspected to be gay due to his portrayal of gay characters in his movies.

Even after dating models Agnes Deyn and actress Sienna Miller everyone seemed extremely curious about his sexuality. Also, he came under fire for suspected flirting with a 17-year-old school girl.

Again in a new interview, his sexuality came under discussion and while conversing with New York Magazine actor Franco described himself as “a Little gay”.

Franco acknowledged with People-

"There is a bit of overfocusing on my sexuality, both by the straight press and the gay press, and so the first question is why do they care?"

For the same statement, he explained-

"Well, because I'm a celebrity, so I guess they care who I'm having sex with."

He  added-

"It's where my allegiance lies, where my sensibilities lie, how I define myself. Yeah, I'm a little gay, and there's a gay James."

Franco seems disgusted about the media and public’s curiosity regarding his sexuality. Maybe gay characters of him in most of his movies have compelled the audiences to think about his sexual orientation. However, he does not want the public meddling in his life.

Franco’s perception towards LGBT community and straight community is the little bit different than regular people as he states “I am a figure who can show the straight community that many of their definitions are outdated and boring. And I can also show the gay community that many of the things about themselves that they are giving up to join the straight community are valuable and beautiful."

Relatively James wrote a book Straight James/ Gay James.

Currently in Twitter Franco is seen promoting his new movie King Cobra, which is rated 8.6 and acclaimed possibly the best film ever made about the business end of America’s gay porn industry.
