While James Franco was in Miami last weekend to accept an Ally award at the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, he apparently took some time out to celebrate his 35th birthday. So just how does a hyper, quasi-genius, unfailingly quirky, handsome stoner commemorate the ol' three-five?
With a cake topped with anal beads, a strap-on, leather whip, and a ball gag, of course.
Franco tweeted the above photo yesterday, saying "Miami bday" by way of vague explanation. Given Franco's recent birthday (April 19) and that the cake says James along the strap-on's straps, we're going to assume it's his. (There's no telling who Cassandra is, though.)

The cake's probably just an extension of the celebration for Interior. Leather Bar, Franco's MGLFF film that fictionally fills in the backstory behind the 1980s gay film Cruising. But that doesn't make it a less auspicious start to another new year of being James Franco. In fact, it pretty much guarantees that Franco's 36th birthday will be a pretty big letdown. When you're diving fork-first into dildo-shaped fondant, there's really no way to, uh, top that.
We have to wonder who had the questionable honor of sharing that cake -- if anyone did at all. The anal beads alone, tasty as they may have been, probably thinned out the dessert line. Hey, maybe this is just a smart maneuver by a guy who really likes cake.
