Oscar host James Franco on gay marriage...

Busy dude James Franco is a nominee for Best Actor at next week's Oscars, and is also co-hosting the big show with Anne Hathaway.

Besides a bunch of movies this year, Franco published a book of stories, took university classes, had his first art exhibit, continued his stint as a Gucci fragrance spokesperson, and had a recurring role on General Hospital as a serial killer named Franco. Whew. Long list.

While promoting his film Howl at the Sundance Film Festival last year, Franco, who co-starred in 2008's Milk, voiced his support for gay marriage:

"Like I said before when Milk was coming out, I hope we'll get to a time soon where we'll look back and say, I can't believe that we were discriminating against this whole group of people and saying, 'You don't have the same rights as everybody else.' I hope that the time comes very, very soon, when we can all look back and say that was ridiculous."

Well said, Mr Franco!
