In a New York Times article written last week the story says that James Franco is living with a close friend. I read the article and that line didn’t out him, I don’t think. There is another line in the article which says that and he and fellow actor Scott Haze are so close “that describing them merely as friends would be a disservice.” Does that out him? Two separate New York Times reporters agree that the paper was subtle, but that it did out James Franco. For his part, James took to Instagram and said, yes, it is shocking he lives with a man. Scott Haze is someone that James works with frequently and directed him in the recent movie Child Of God. Here is the New York Times article. Read it and see what you think. Just because a guy lives with another guy and is friends doesn’t mean they are gay. I’m not saying James wouldn’t say try and hump a giraffe if you put it in front of him, but is living with someone of the same sex and a reporter writing about it, outing someone? I know lots of people in LA who have five or six roommates to make ends meet and they all work on projects together. Does this mean they are all sleeping together and I am missing out? Damn.
