He’s sexy enough to play James Dean, funny enough to host “Saturday Night Live,” bad enough to play a classic comic book villain, sophisticated enough to be the face of Gucci pour Homme, and brave enough to go gay — twice. James Franco is more than just a pretty face, he’s the kind of actor that at 30 has already earned the respect and admiration of his peers. Ask anyone, from Tinseltown to his hometown: To know James Franco is to love him. In his latest movie, “Milk,” the story of gay activist and San Francisco city supervisor Harvey Milk, he stars alongside Emile Hirsch and Sean Penn. The flick opened over Thanksgiving weekend, and it already has major Oscar buzz. In it, Franco plays, as he says, “the supporting wife” role, Milk’s lover, Scott Smith. It’s a bold move, but James Franco isn’t your average actor. Here’s what we found out about the man behind all those legends. Keep reading »
Last night, I got to sneak a peak of the movie “Milk”, which opens in theaters on November 26th, and James Franco naked, swimming in a pool. I’m not sure which one was more life changing, the booty or the biopic, but they were both even better than I had dreamed. “Milk,” about the life and times of Harvey Milk, the first gay man elected to public office back in the 1970s, seems unbelievably relevant today with the passing of Prop 8 earlier this month. While the film was shot long before the recent rallies, eerily enough, Milk was largely responsible for stopping California’s Prop 6, which would have made it legal to fire any employee and deny them housing simply because they were gay. The interwoven documentary footage from Milk’s protests look almost identical to that of this past weekend’s Join The Impact nationwide march — same cause, different decade. Keep reading »
With Guy Ritchie and Madonna making their divorce plans official, you know that ho (as always) is going to turn to music to get her through it. Since she’s supposedly has A-rod waiting in the wings, her recovery period will probably only last a couple pop songs. Luckily, Madge won’t even have to search for tunes to express how she feels, since she already sings them! So here is our suggestions for Madonna’s Break Up Playlist featuring songs by Madonna.
“You need so much but not from me/Turn your back in my hour of need/ Something’s wrong but you pretend you don’t see/ I think I interrupt your life/ When you laugh, it cuts me just like a knife/ I’m not your friend, I’m just your little wife.” — ”Till Death Do Us Part” from “Like A Prayer”
This song from 1988 (during her marriage to Sean Penn) is all about a wife wishing her husband loved her more. Sigh, unlike the empowering hit on this record, “Express Yourself,” which encourages a woman with “don’t go for second best, baby!” This song, a mere 2 tracks down, has the woman going back to her blasé husband. Is there still a future for Madonna and Guy? Or will Madonna follow her own advice and “do much better baby on your own?”
Back in February, we got our panties in a bunch over the making of a new movie called Milk. Based on the swinging ’70s life of San Francisco gay activist and politician Harvey Milk, the biopic stars Sean Penn, James Franco, Josh Brolin, and Diego Luna. Needless to say, we can’t wait to see this film, which is practically guaranteed to be an Oscar contender. Sigh, we’ll have to wait for the film to be released on December 5. But today, they threw us a cookie crumb to go with that Milk in the form of the movie’s trailer. We promise you at least one shirtless stud. Both the sexy stars and the dramatic storyline about the fight for basic human rights have got us all fired up!
Our prayers have been answered! The City of Angels is sending us another homoerotic love story. The film, a biopic of influential San Franciscan gay activist and politician Harvey Milk, will feature two straight men: James Dean look alike James Franco and the steamy, newly-single Sean Penn. Those two together sound tastier than dim sum in Chinatown! Although no sex shots from the movie have made their way onto the Internet yet, (Boo! Where are my homo hackers at?) there is evidence of romance in these pics up on Towleroad.com. But really, even in clothing, these two men make us grateful for all the good things they’re doing for gay rightsâ€¦.and our libidos.
