Franco In a new interview where Franco's "gay" personality interviews his straight one, the actor claims that his sexuality depends on how someone chooses to define the term "gay". "Well, I like to think that I’m gay in my art and straight in my life," he told Four Two Nine magazine. "Although, I’m also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse, and then you could say I’m straight." "So I guess it depends on how you define gay. If it means whom you have sex with, I guess I’m straight. In the twenties and thirties, they used to define homosexuality by how you acted and not by whom you slept with." "Sailors would fuck guys all the time, but as long as they behaved in masculine ways, they weren't considered gay," he added.
