james franco candy 2 James Franco cross dresses for Candy magazineJames Franco sure does make a very alluring woman.

Franco appears in drag — wearing black leather gloves, a tailored suit, gold choker necklace and matching earrings and his hair pulled back into a psuedo-chignon — on the cover of Candy magazine.

]]>Pushing the sexual envelope is nothing new for Franco, who most recently gave an intriguing interview to The Advocate, and has done an art show of male genitals and a student film of himself wearing a penis on his nose while running through the Louvre. According to Jezebel,  the actor, who has played many gay roles and directed movies about gay men, insists he’s not gay. Even his girlfriend Ahna O’Reilly says he’s not gay. Or rather, if he is, it’s news to her, which is slightly different. Here’s Franco’s statement about the new magazine: “Candy is a magazine for everybody. A space for individual freedom, and a publication that pushes people to take on the persona of what they always wanted to be.” Follow Zap2it and Elizadish on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news
