Glitter Lining

The Da Vinci Code secret is out: critics hate it

Have I ever mentioned how much I love Ian McKellen? His presence in a movie, or even on the panel of Real Time with Bill Maher, always makes it better. Now it turns out he can do the same thing for an article:
Ian McKellen, an openly gay actor who plays Leigh Teabing in The Da Vinci Code, sought to make light of the controversy.

"I'm very happy to believe that Jesus was married," he said. "I know the Catholic Church has problems with gay people and I thought this would be absolute proof that Jesus was not gay."

In the midst of all the carping from Opus Dei and others, isn't that just the perfect response?
