James Franco Personal Life
Among the most frequently asked questions about Franco from his adoring fans is: “Is James Franco gay?” – and Franco himself does little to quash the rumors. Indeed he’s been quoted as saying “I like to think I’m gay in my art and straight in my life.” He’s quipped once “maybe I am gay.”
The truth may never be revealed as the constant speculation fuels the endless rumors around who Franco will attract next. His support of the LGBT community adds further to the belief that Franco may at the very least be bi-sexual. Nevertheless, he’s been known to date high profile women, including Marla Sokoloff and Ahna O’Reilly.

Still, Franco is a genius when it comes to acting. He catapulted to fame in James Dean, a breakthrough role, and went on to star in 127 Hours and The Disaster Artist, which were both critically acclaimed.
