Sex in the City's Mario Cantone
has said Kirk Cameron can kiss his ass.
The 52-year-old Cantone, known for
playing Anthony Marentino in the HBO dramedy Sex and the City,
opened his visit with the women of ABC's The View by
addressing Cameron's recent anti-gay remarks.
“I've been away,” Cantone announced
as he joined the women on the show's sofa. “I was in Key West with
Kirk Cameron. Yes, that's where I was.”
Cantone, who last year married his
partner of 20 years, musical theater director Jerry Dixon, at
a ceremony officiated by pastor Jay Bakker, the son of
televangelist Jim Bakker and Tammy Faye Bakker Messner, was poking
fun at remarks Cameron made during an interview on CNN's Piers
Cameron, 41, told
Piers Morgan the being gay is “unnatural” and “ultimately
destructive” to society, and that he would not be supportive if one
of his six sons told him he was gay.
“I love how he actually said, 'You
know my gay friends are supportive of me,'” Cantone continued.
“Why would you want gay friends when you feel that way? And why
would gay friends want to be friends with you?”
“Kiss my ass, Kirk Cameron,” he
roared to a thunderous applause. (The video is embedded in the right
