Actor Dave Franco believes people
watching him in several gay roles will come away thinking he's gay.
But the 27-year-old Franco says in an
interview with Michigan gay weekly Between
The Lines that he's just “trying to blur the lines.”
In one of the videos, titled Go F*ck
Yourself, Franco's character meets himself in a bar after his
girlfriend, in the course of breaking up with him, tells him to “go
fuck yourself.” Following a day of fun and frolic at the beach,
the men are seen in bed together.

“It's not like I'm doing these videos
because I'm trying to shock or confuse people,” Franco said. “I'm
generally drawn toward material that's just different and unique and
is gonna maybe surprise people a bit.”
“I have gay friends and of course I'm
comfortable enough with my sexuality that I'm open to doing videos
like that. I know a huge audience is going to think that I am gay.
I'm just trying to blur the lines, I guess. I'm not consciously
trying to do that, but it's not something I think about. Like with
my friends who are gay, it's not like that's the first thing I
associate with them. They're just another friend, and they just
happen to like guys.”
Franco, the younger brother of James
Franco, stars in the upcoming zombie comedy film Warm Bodies.
