Chris Evans 'heartbroken' by marriage inequality
The Avengers actor Chris Evans has said he is ’embarrassed’ and ‘heartbroken’ by marriage inequality.
The actor, who reprises his role of Captain America for the forthcoming film The Avengers, spoke about marriage inequality in an interview with Playboy magazine – to promote the launch of his new movie.
When Evans was asked whether he was a supporter of gay marriage the actor told Playboy Magazine‘Are you kidding me? It’s insane that civil rights are being denied people in this day and age. It’s embarrassing, and it’s heartbreaking. It goes without saying that I’m completely in support of gay marriage. In 10 years we’ll be ashamed that this was an issue.‘
