James Franco celebrates birthday with S&M-themed cake topped with dildo and anal beads

Other decorations atop the kinky confection include a cat o'nine tails and a ball gag

James Franco celebrated turning 35 on Monday (April 29) with a very special birthday cake.

A picture of the bespoke cake appears above. It has a distinctive S&M theme and comes topped with a dildo, a cat o’nine tails, a ball gag and a set of anal beads – all of which are presumably edible.

The actor shared the picture of the kinky confection with his 397,000 Twitter followers on Monday, but did not reveal which part of the cake he ate first or what it tasted like. Franco also declined to comment on the moistness of the sponge.

The cake was presumably baked in honour of Franco’s recent work on Interior. Leather. Bar., his indie film following a fictional attempt to recreate 40 minutes of deleted sex scenes from a notorious ’80s gay porn movie called Cruising. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch the trailer.

In related news, Franco will soon be seen playing Hugh Hefner in Lovelace, a biopic of ’70s porn actress Linda Lovelace starring Amanda Seyfried. The film opens in US cinemas on June 28, but the UK release date has yet to be confirmed.
