Actor James Franco has a cryptic response to those wondering if he’s straight or gay.

“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,” Franco said in an interview with New York Magazine.

“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.”

Franco returned to education in 2006 when he enrolled in UCLA in California as an English major and has subsequently studied and taught a number of other courses, and admits one of the reasons he went back to school was to branch out creatively, reports

“One of the reasons that I went back to school -- and then many schools -- was that when I only had acting, I felt trapped,” Franco told New York Magazine.

“I think that’s how a lot of people feel in a lot of professions. When I went to Yale for my Ph.D. in literature, I had fellow students -- great students, writing incredible papers -- come up to me and say, “I’m so jealous of you. I’m writing this paper. If I get it published, 50 people will read it,” he added.
