Today’s daily instalment of ‘What is James Franco up to?’ has him posting a pic on Instagram of the actor sharing a car with Zachary Quinto. He accompanied it with the message, ‘My new lover, SPOCK! @zacharyquinto‘.
The comment is presumably another reaction to the recent Gawker article that took basically no evidence and spun it into proof that Franco was in a gay relationship with his friend Scott Haze. As Gawker’s main evidence was that Franco and Haze took one car home instead of two, there is some logic to the fact that a pic of him in a vehicle with Quinto means they are practically married.
The two are together as they’re currently co-starring in Michael, in which Franco play Michael Glatze, who went from being a prominent gay rights advocate to becoming one of the poster-boys for the ex-gay movement when he found God, renounced his homosexuality and married a woman. Quinto plays one of Glatze’s former lovers.
