He's a nice-looking guy but could do with a bit of hair on his chest. In any case, I like how he doesn't allow others to put him into a box.

I hopw he stops stealing gay parts from gay actors.
We are constantly told that gay actors can't come out as it will cost them roles.
Yet straight guys like France steal the only roles a gay actor can openly play.
James Franco is part of the problem of homophobia in Hollywood.

It's nice to see a Hollywood guy with his 'no make-up' face on. Makes you realize that so much of it is lighting and slap.

I started reading Towleroad for news...not skin and gossip. I hate to say it, but I think I'm about over this site.

Most openly gay men are very poor actors. That is because they feel the need to act like an effeminate stereotype. They are also told by the executives to act effeminate because it brings in the laughs.

I think his "no makeup" face is even hotter.

So since he's straight (?) who are his girlfriends? I read the Daily Mail Online all the time and never see him linked with any women.
Bitchy . . . Bitchy . . . Bitchy . . .
It is amazing how many bitchy queens that there are! You apparently have not heard of "If you can not say ANYTHING nice, then do not say anything at all! [sigh]

@Marym are you serious?! You are blaming James Franco for Hollywood's homophobia? Seriously? He is one of the most accepting allies we have in Hollywood (not to mention a phenomenal actor).
Did you maybe think he is getting gay roles because his talent as an actor allows him to portray multi-faceted characters that don't necessarily reflect his own personality? Oh no… I guess he's maliciously "stealing" the homos' acting gigs.

Looks like Jimmy could spend a little more time on the pec deck but otherwise he's a very decent example of homo sapiens. As for T'road's balance, I like having a little news, a little eye candy, a little well-founded rumor. At least it's not all chick chat like Today and GMA.

He looked very hot in As I Lay Dying.

I LIKE HIM!
Sexy you bet. And his intelligence goes without saying. James Franco is an EXCELLENT actor and that he is a strong supporter of gay rights also is self evident. Does he have "bedhead" ? Of course, but which of us does not look much worse when we get up? Maybe he gets gay roles from gay actors because he CAN act and has proven his talent again and again. Does it somehow empower you to put him down? Shame on you . . .

@ALIAS Do you feel personally "insulted" for the less then positive comments or did I touch a nerve when I said "bitchy queen"? GOOD!

I like this site for the news..the skin..the gossip..when did the gays stop liking skin? When we started getting more rights?? Are we supposed to acclimate now into the str8 world?? Jeez..
I think I preferred the 'alternative' life style..at least I could be honest about myself..

Posted by: m | Nov 18, 2013 10:06:06 AM

I always jokingly ask on his Google+ page, whenever he posts, whether or not he banged Jay Baruchel whenever they're in the same movie or working on the same project.
So, James, did you just bang Jay Baruchel when you took the selfie? ;)~
