James Franco goes for seductive makeover

The 32-year-old star, who plays mountaineer Aron Ralston in Danny Boyle's '127 Hours', is unrecognisable in his new dolled up avatar for transvestite magazine Candy, the Daily Mail reported.

Franco is seen wearing heavy eyeshadow, fake eyelashes and lipstick as he is shot in dresses as well as T-shirts and jeans for the pictures taken by renowned photographer Terry Richardson.

The shots, which feature in the Fall/Winter edition of the new magazine, come just weeks after Franco came forward to shoot down rumours about his sexuality.
Franco, who played Sean Penn's gay lover in 'Milk', found himself the centre of speculation about whether he is gay or not.

The actor says, "I'm not gay" but admits that he prefers starring in homosexual love stories because they are "more interesting".

"In this history of cinema, there are so many heterosexual love stories. It's so hammered, so done." he told Advocate magazine.

"It's just not that interesting to me. It's more interesting to me to play roles and relationships that haven't been portrayed as often."
