James Franco appears on the cover of Attitude magazine’s April 2013 issue. Inside, he didn’t hold anything back.
The actor addressed rumors about his sexuality. He explained, “One of the things that’s very much part of my public image is the question of my sexuality. It’s not something that bothers me in the slightest. It hasn’t gone away and I get asked about it from all sides. It’s partly my doing and partly not my doing.”
He continued, “I think that the people I have known who are performers who haven’t publicly come out didn’t because they’re afraid it’ll hurt their careers. And they’re afraid they won’t be able to play straight roles anymore. If there’s somebody that was well respected and very secure with their career, I could see it happening in a very positive way.”
