Hottie James Franco attended the premiere of his latest flick, “Milk” on Tuesday. Franco along with his co-stars Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch and Josh Brolin took the opportunity to promote awareness of Proposition 8.
“This film premiere especially is going to generate a lot of attention for Prop 8,” Emile Hirsch told Access. “I think it’s going to be really helpful for [the fight against] Prop 8.”
James Franco echoed Emile’s thoughts, telling Access, “We’re lucky that we have this night. This is a really big night for San Francisco and it’s just great that this is happening right before Prop 8.”
The film is about the life of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man voted into public office in America.
James plays Harvey’s partner Scotty in the film, thinks the actual Harvey would have been proud to see the film premiere in his own neighborhood.
“He’d love it. [Harvey] helped start the gay pride parade here on Castro and he certainly enjoyed a good party and everything that we’re celebrating in this movie,” James said.
Milk hits theaters on November 26th.
