Franco asked himself, “Are you gay or what?” There he replied to his own question as “Well, I like to think that I’m gay in my art and straight in life. Although I’m also a gay in my life up to the point of intercourse, and then you could say I am straight.”

He also clarified his view a bit by saying, “So I guess it depends on how you define gay. If it means to whom you have sex with, I guess I’m straight.
