Actor James Franco has a strange mind, that much isn’t a secret, but there is no way this can’t be described as odd, even for him, as he conducted an interview on himself for FourTwoNine magazine.
For the interview Franco goes by “SJ’ for Straight James and “GJ” for Gay James and begins by addressing a “public persona that is all waked out and hard to pin down, or annoying, or whatever,” and then jumps right into the gay/straight issue.
“OK, so good place to start. Let’s get substantial: are you f–king gay or what?,” Straight James asks. “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,” GJ responds.
“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.”
In the interview Gay James continues to explain why he continues to have such a “confusing” outward persona, “I like my queer public persona. I like that it’s hard to define me and that people always have to guess about me. They don’t know what the hell is up with me, and that’s great. Not that I do what I do to confuse people, but as long as they are confused, I get time to play.”
In the lengthy interviews the “two” Francos touch upon all of his upcoming projects which include True Story, I Am Michael and Everything Will Be Fine, all slated for this spring.
