Actor Chris Pine slams Russia’s anti-gay law for being "awful, archaic, hostile"

If you don’t love him yet, maybe you will now.

The Associated Press (via Philstar.com) reports that actor Chris Pine says "the U.S. should have done more in the run-up to the 2014v Winter Olympics in Sochi to protest Russia’s anti-gay legislation, which he calls ’clearly awful, archaic, hostile nonsense.’"

In an interview while promoting his film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, the 33-year-old actor said,  ’’What’s happening there in terms of gay rights or the lack of it is extraordinary and awful."

The report noted: "The Russian law on ’propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors’ was signed into law by President Vladimir Putin last year. Originally titled the law on ’homosexual propaganda,’ the bill criminalizes public expression of support for nontraditional relationships."

 

The report also added that "the U.S. is sending openly gay former Olympic athletes Billie Jean King, Brian Boitano and Caitlin Cahow to the opening ceremony of the Sochi Olympics, which start on February 7."
