A Kiss is Just a Kiss?

Apparently not according to James Franco, who can't stopping talking about having to kiss Sean Penn in the upcoming Gus Van Sant biopic, Milk. He plays slain civil rights leader Harvey Milk's lover, and of course Penn plays Milk. Andy Towle has some choice words for Franco regarding his obsession with explaining the kiss and other close encounters:

So as not to risk disillusioning the movie's built-in audience, perhaps one of these times Franco could talk about how it really allowed him to tap into that gay side of himself that wanted, really wanted to just make love to Sean Penn with all his soul. Or perhaps one of the stock answers that it's just acting and he wanted to treat the story about the nation's first gay elected official with respect. Or, he could just shut up.
