  • James Franco is not gay, says James Franco. And James Franco is not a stoner, says James Franco. In an interview with The Advocate, a magazine for gay gays, James Franco was asked if he's gay, and if he would say so if he were. "Sure, I'd tell you if I was," he said. "I guess the reason I wouldn't is because I'd be worried that it would hurt my career. I suppose that's the reason one wouldn't do that, right? But no, that wouldn't be something that would deter me. I'm going to do projects that I want to do. 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." [NY Mag/Vulture]
