In his new book of poems, Hollywood actor James Franco asks himself, “Are you f**king gay or what?”

Franco's various gay roles and support for the LGBT community have led to questions about his own sexuality.

Instead of denying the rumors, Franco has fanned them.

In an interview with earlier this year, Franco said that he's gay “up to the point of intercourse” and added that he enjoys his “queer public persona.”

A new tantalizing twist in Franco's campaign to convince us that he's warming up to the possibility can be found in his upcoming poetry book, Straight James / Gay James.

Straight James / Gay James, actor James Franco's new chapbook of poems, explores the facets of his public and private personas,” the book's description reads. “Straight James / Gay James is a poetic bildungsroman – raw, candid, and uninhibited. James Franco writes about life as an actor, sexuality, questions of identity, gender, family, Gucci, Lana Del Rey, James Dean, and Hollywood. His poetic style varies from the imagistic to the prosaic. The chapbook also contains an interview of 'Gay James' conducted by 'Straight James.' Yes, Straight James asks the question: Let's get substantial: are you fucking gay or what?”
