Ugh! As IF we needed more of a reason to love Chris Pine!
The Jack Ryan star has spoken out against Russia's anti-gay laws and called them "archaic," while also urging the U.S. to protest the laws during the Olympics.
Just in case you live under a rock, the law he's talking about is the one aimed against the "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors," which was placed into effect by Vladimir Putin.
It was supposed to be called the law against "homosexual propaganda," and it officially criminalizes all public acts that show support for "nontraditional relationships."
But, Chris is insistent the United States do MORE to show our outrage at the laws than just by sending openly gay, former Olympians to cover the events.
"[They're] clearly awful, archaic, hostile nonsense. I think we should do more than just send gay Olympians there. What's happening there in terms of gay rights or the lack of it is extraordinary and awful. It's not like the Bay of Pigs where nuclear war is going to start at the drop of a hat."
Could he be any MORE perfect? Ugh!
And, hello, such a great point! We should be doing EVERYTHING that we can think of and then some to combat those AWFUL laws!
Keep it up, Chris!
