He’s kissed Seth Rogen and starred as a gay lover in Milk.

James Franco has now admitted he’s “a little gay” – but is baffled as to why people care about his sexuality.

The 37-year-old also called himself a “gay c*** tease” in a new interview.

Franco, above, told New York Magazine: “There is a bit of overfocusing on my sexuality… and so the first question is why do they care?

“Well, because I’m a celebrity, so I guess they care who I’m having sex with.

“But if your definition of gay and straight is who I sleep with, then I guess you could say I’m a gay c**k tease. It’s where my allegiance lies, where my sensibilities lie, how I define myself.

“Yeah, I’m a little gay, and there’s a gay James.”

Meanwhile, Franco, below playing Harvey Milk’s lover in the 2008 film Milk, also opened up about hosting the 2011 Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway, for which he was universally slammed.

He said: “In the best-case scenario, even if I killed it, it’s not going to help my career because that’s not what my career’s based on. It was an experiment.

“If you go and host the Oscars and they get even an inkling of you trying to subvert it in any way or punk it in any way, people are going to get p****d, and that’s sort of what happened.

“You know, I think one of the things that happens in film, and television, and performance-based things is that people will criticise the performers because they’re the face of the piece. We didn’t write the script for the Oscars.”
