James Franco is ''pretty bad in the romance department''.

The 'Spring Breakers' star insists he's not very good with relationships because he can't seem to master sweeping a potential partner off their feet with a ''grand gesture''.

He said: ''I've been pretty bad in the romance department.

''I think I'm a caring guy, but the grand gestures I'm not great at. I need to put more work into it.''

Whilst James is a little unlucky in love, his brother Dave is set to wed Alison Brie next year and James is greatly looking forward to it.

He added to Entertainment Tonight: ''He's supposed to get married in February. I think he's so casual about it.''

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old actor previously admitted he is ''a little gay''.

He said: ''There is a bit of overfocusing on my sexuality ... and so the first question is why do they care? Well, because I'm a celebrity, so I guess they care who I'm having sex with. But if your definition of gay and straight is who I sleep with, then I guess you could say I'm a gay c**k tease. It's where my allegiance lies, where my sensibilities lie, how I define myself. Yeah, I'm a little gay, and there's a gay James.''

Meanwhile, Chris O'Dowd - who appeared alongside James in the Broadway production 'Of Mice and Men' - previously admitted he thinks it is James' ''handsome'' looks that get him into trouble.

He said: ''James is great. I think he's genuinely trying to do interesting things. Not everybody is. He takes a lot of flak for it, which I've never really understood. If he wasn't so handsome, I think he'd be celebrated much more.''
