Actress Busy Philipps says she's frequently asked about the inside of James Franco's mouth.

Franco played Philipps' love interest on Freaks and Geeks.

Philipps told gay glossy The Advocate that the questions about the inside of Franco's mouth are “universal.”

“Everybody asks me questions about the inside of James Franco's mouth,” said Philipps, who currently co-stars on the ABC comedy Cougar Town. “What's unfortunate is that I've never been one of those girls had sexy affairs with my costars. It usually just starts and ends with the on-set make-out sesh. I was only 19, but I remember that Franco and I had a really good time making out. I loved that relationship because Kim and Daniel were so passionate that they just had to stick their tongues down each others' throats.”

The 33-year-old Philipps also said she hopes for a gay character on Cougar Town.

“[A]nd I want them to be my character's best friend,” she said of the possibility. “I will want every scene with them.”

“I'm so happy that network television on the whole is embracing more gay characters now than it did when we had Jack on Dawson's Creek, which was a huge deal at the time. I love that we've chipped away at the celluloid closet and have wonderful programs that feature gay and lesbian characters in really rich, fully developed ways,” she added.
