James Franco's admission that he lives with friend Scott Haze has again sent the rumour mill into overdrive with suggestions the actor is gay.

An article originally published in the New York Times described Franco and friend Scott Haze as being "so close that describing them merely as friends would be a disservice,"mentioning they were sharing an apartment in Brooklyn together for the summer.

Gossip site Gawker jumped on this information publishing an article titled 'James Franco is Living with a Man joking that Haze who currently stars in Child of God, directed by Franco, was also adept at playing another role: Franco's live-in-boyfriend.

It was this comment which prompted the actor to respond in jest via his Instagram account saying:

"GAWKER - always getting the cutting edge, homophobic scoop!!! Go see CHILD OF GOD in theaters and see me direct my live-in boyfriend, SCOTT HAZE!!! Love you SCOTT!!!!"

Just hours later the actor posted another photo joking he had married Lana Del Rey.
