Chris Pine: U.S. Not Doing Enough to Protest Russia's Anti-Gay Laws

Pine

Chris Pine, who is promoting a new film about a terror attack in the U.S. that originates in Russia, criticized the anti-gay law there and the U.S. response to it, in a recent interview, the AP reports:

Chris Pine says the U.S. should have done more in the run-up to the Sochi Olympics to protest Russia's anti-gay legislation, which he calls "clearly awful, archaic, hostile nonsense."

"I think we should do more than just send gay Olympians there," the 33-year-old actor said in an interview while promoting his film "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit." ''What's happening there in terms of gay rights or the lack of it is extraordinary and awful."

Obama announced last month that out athletes Billie Jean King, Brian Boitano and Caitlin Cahow would be in the official delegation to the Sochi Games.

Streep will play the plum role of the vain and charismatic Witch while Depp will play a hungry and sexy variation of a fairy tale wolf. Sources say that Gyllenhaal and Pine would play the musical’s two princes, Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince, brothers who are pompous and self-absorbed.
