James Franco felt uncomfortable with gay scene in movieDecember 1st, 2008 - 10:00 pm ICT by IANS
London, Dec 1 (IANS) “Spiderman” star James Franco’s kiss with Sean Penn in Harvey Milk’s biopic “Milk” has left him feeling uncomfortable as Penn wanted to act out a full-on love scene.According to contactmusic.com, Franco, who plays San Francisco politician Milk’s gay lover Scott Smith in the Gus Van Sant film, knew he’d have to do intimate scenes with Penn but was shocked when the director told him that Penn wanted to take it further.
“In the original script I read, there was only one real kissing scene. A month after Gus asked me to do it, they sent me another script, and on Page 5 there was a full-on love scene. And I was like, ‘Gus, what the heck?’ He says, ‘Well, it was Sean’s idea’,” he said.
