James Franco was recently spotted out on the town with a hunky man and the two had no problem expressing their love. In candid photos that just surfaced, the couple are seen holding hands after an intimate coffee date. James tenderly cups his manfriend’s cheek and makes out with him in a black car.
So could this finally be it? The proof everyone seems to need about which team James prefers?
Actually, no. The joke’s on us. James purposefully posted the pictures to pull everyone’s collective leg.
"#Jamesfrancotv in love?????? #gawker.com #gay,” the 35-year-old captioned a collection of the PDA-tastic photos. He also posted a photo of him making out with an unidentified woman dedicated to Perez Hilton and a third with the same woman doing a little bit more than making out and referencing Just Jared.
He unveiled the images to his Instagram with the message “Just a Franco afternoon Gawker” scrawled across the coffee date collage. Even more shocking: The preferred medium for the well-known modern Renaissance man appears to be Paint on your standard Windows 98. Nice artistic reference to Perez there, Mr. Franco.
James has long fielded questions about his sexuality, likely a topic of interest because of his onscreen portrayals of several gay men. Indeed, James’s love life was the center of many a joke in his recent Comedy Central roast and led to the actor later telling the Daily Beast, “I wish I was gay.”
Whatever his preferences might be, the signal from James via his latest photos is loud and clear: Leave my love life alone! Message received, Franco. But really, who are you dating?!
