Chris Pine Blasts Russia's Antigay Law, Criticizes U.S. Response

Chris Pine criticized Russia for passing homophobic legislation banning "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations" while promoting his latest film,Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, reports the Associated Press.
The 33-year-old actor and LGBT ally called the antigay law "clearly awful, archaic, hostile nonsense," and said he believes the U.S. should have taken a stronger stance against Russia’s antigay policies in the months leading up to the 2014 Winter Games, which are scheduled to begin next month in Sochi.

"I think we should do more than just send gay Olympians there," Pine told the AP. ''What's happening there in terms of gay rights or the lack of it is extraordinary and awful."
