James Franco is on the defense for the banned Australian film I Want Your Love, which is a drama that features elicit homosexual scenes.

In a YouTube video, the star of upcoming film Oz The Great and Powerful, addresses that the ban is a "disappointment."

"This is just such a disappointment to me and seems really silly. I don't know why in this day and age something like this, a film that's using sex not for titillation but to talk about being human, is being banned," he said in his video.

The classification board of Australia won't even let producers screen the film for the upcoming queer film festivals in Melbourne and in Brisbane, because the material is too risqué, according to The Guardian. The Melbourne Queer Film Festival takes place in mid-March and the Brisbane Queer Film Festival takes place in April.

Travis Mathew directed the film I Want Your Love and has collaborated with James Franco for a film that was in the Sundance festival, Interior. Leather. Bar.

Franco hopes that the ban is reconsidered and added in his video that the ban was embarrassing.

According to Belfast Telegraph, I Want Your Love was screened at Outfest, and at the Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival.
