James Franco on “homophobic scoop”

Actor and director James Franco, whose sexuality has always been subject to speculation, has responded to a report on gossip site Gawker that he was living with his friend and co-star Scott Haze.

"Theirs is the kind of relationship — somewhat ambiguous, seemingly gay, probably romantic — that almost always sends the New York Times into a bizarre moral panic," the site wrote.

In response, Franco posted a screenshot of the headline on Instagram (pictured below) with the caption: GAWKER — always getting the cutting edge, homophobic scoop!!! Go se CHILD OF GOD in theatres and see me direct my live-in boyfriend, SCOTT HAZE!!! Love you SCOTT!!!"
