After a Celebrity Roasting filled with gay jokes and a career that has been riddled with gay rumours, James Franco has come out admitting that he wishes he was gay.

“I was like, ‘Great! Bring on the gay jokes!’ because these aren’t insults at all,” he told the Beast. “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 has starred in several gay themed movies, such as Milk, where he played Harvey Milk’s partner, and Kink and Leather Bar, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year.
