Jan 7 (THAINDIAN NEWS) With questions abounding on whether or now James Franco is gay, many are beginning to wonder about his five year relationship with Ahna O Reilly. Although they have been romantically linked for quite some time, rumors are flying which suggest that she is merely a “cover” for Franco.

Although Franco has played many “gay” characters, such as in the films, ‘Milk’, where he played the part of gay activist Scott Smith, ‘Howl’,in which he played the part of Allen Ginsberg, and ‘the Broken Tower’, where he was poet Hart Crane, there is not much evidence which would explain why the gay rumors are being spread. When asked whether or not her “long time lover” wants to be gay, Ahana replied, “If eh does, it’s new to me!”

Franco seems to think it is funny that people are so adamantly interested in other people’s sexuality, and responded to ‘Entertainment Weekly’, “Part of what I’m interested in is how these people who were living anti-normative lifestyles contended with opposition. Or, you know what, maybe I’m just gay.” He also feels that it it not such a cut and dry subject. “It’s funny because the way that kind of stuff is talked about on blogs is so black-and-white. It’s all cut-and-dry identity politics. ‘Is he straight or is he gay?’ Or, ‘This is your third gay movie - come out already!’ And all based on, gay or straight, based on the idea that your object of affection decides your sexuality.”
