A good article from the Post re: James Franco doing promotional interviews for MILK...

Wasn't it really difficult to kiss another man? Implied: Without throwing up, seeing as you're so obviously straight? What were you thinking as you kissed? Did you rehearse it? What was it liiiiiike?
Underlying the questions (and the answers) is this notion that a gay kissing scene must be the worst Hollywood job hazard that a male actor could face, including stunt work, extreme weather or sitting through five hours of special-effects makeup every day. We live comfortably, if strangely, in a pseudo-Sapphic era in which seemingly every college woman with a
MySpace page has kissed another girl for the camera; but for men who kiss men, it's still the final frontier.

I wonder if anyone interviews T.R. Knight from "Grey's Anatomy" and Neil Patrick Harris from "How I Met your Mother" and asks them how offensive it must be to kiss a woman???
