Elle Magazine interview

17 Nov, 2008

Franco gives interview to Elle about how he prepared to play a gay man in Milk. 

You mean, how did I prepare to kiss Sean Penn? As far as the kissing and intimacy, no, Sean and I did not make out during rehearsals or anything like that. I just knew I had to be relaxed and natural or it was going to be ridiculous. So I guess, when you’re actually kissing, you try not to think about it too much. There was one shot where, I don’t know how long it actually turned out to be in the movie, but the shot took about a minute to film. We had to kiss for a minute, which is a very long time on-screen.
