James Franco‘s recent Comedy Central Roast was filled with gay jokes and quips. The actor took it all in stride and even told the Daily Beast that he wasn’t offended by all the gay jabs.
He shared, “If that’s what they were going to make fun of me for, I was like, ‘Great! Bring on the gay jokes!’ because these aren’t insults at all. I don’t even care if people think I’m gay, so it was like, ‘Awesome!’ I mean, I wish I was … I wish I was gay.”
Franco continued, “My relationship with my public image over the past four or five years has just become weirder and weirder, because I look at it and it’s me, and it’s not me, so if other people want to use that for their own purposes or needs, I’m fine with it.”
The media recently romantically linked Franco to his Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson, but he has since dismissed that rumor.
