Better late than never, Zachary Quinto!
The Hitman: Agent 47 has—for whatever reason—not necessarily always been the biggest fan of the Kardashians. But thanks to Caitlyn Jenner, Quinto is finally coming around!
How do we know this? Well, in an interview with InStyle conducted prior to the Supreme Court's historic June 26 decision to legalize gay marriage in all 50 states, Quinto was asked if he would "move on to another cause" when marriage-equality was achieved in the United States. "The battle for acceptance, against bigoted hatred, is not yet over," he answered poignantly. "That said, I do think the gay-rights movement is evolving into a transgender-equality movement."
Caitlyn Jenner, of course, became the de facto face of the transgender community with her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair on June 1. Since then, the 65-year-old Olympian has been vocal about wanting to help others to understand and accept transgender men and women, and Kim, Khloé, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian have all shown great support for Caitlyn, too!
Naturally, when Quinto mentioned the transgender-equality movement, Caitlyn came to mind. And because her family is such a big part of her journey, InStyle wanted to know if the Star Trek hunk was "a fan of the Kardashians."
His surprising answer? "If you had asked me that a few months ago, I would have been dismissive," Quinto admitted. "But I have a lot of admiration for Caitlyn Jenner. And to the extent the family is reflective of it— I can't believe I'm saying this—I have more of an appreciation."
