James Franco liked the moustache he sported in Milk, femalefirst.co.uk reports. The Pineapple Express star portrays Scott Smith in the movie and says he was surprised to find he didn’t detest his facial hair or costumes as much as he expected to.
He said: “I thought I was going to hate the moustache but I grew to kind of like it and the clothes aren’t too far from what people wear today.”
The actor shares love scenes with Sean Penn, who plays Harvey Milk — California’s first openly gay elected official, who was assassinated — but insists he wasn’t worried by the homosexual encounters.
He added to BBC Newsbeat: “Intimate scenes like that, whether it’s with an actress or an actor, there’s not a lot of discussion that goes on, you just kind of do it. So we just kind of did it.”
