(Photo: Splash News Online) Fantastic Four star Chris Evans has recently become a vocal advocate of gay marriage, saying it's 'appalling' that homosexuals in this country aren't allowed to get married.

The 27 year-old Evans' indignation was probably ignited after the passing of Proposition 8, which reversed early rulings granting the gay community the right to wed in California.

The actor, whose signature line as the Human Torch is "Flame On!", has a younger brother Scott who is openly gay. Chris believes that politicians will eventually have to change America's laws regarding same-sex marriage.

"It's mindboggling and appalling that human beings are being denied civil rights in this country," said Evans. "But time will heal all. I have to believe that in 10 years we won't be having this conversation. We'll be having another one, because we'll always find someone to persecute."

In addition to both Fantastic Four films, Evans has appeared in Sunshine, The Nanny Diaries, and Street Kings.
