That was never, ever in any way a part of my intention. This was something that was an intensely personal decision and intensely thought-out. I gave it a lot of thought and attention. It has nothing to do with marketability or visibility. I mean, I'd rather be doing it in association with a movie that I have a significant impact in bringing to bear and bringing to life than at any other time to just generate attention for me myself. I'm making a lot of declarations this week - as a producer, as an actor, as someone who's interested in human rights and wants to help advance those conversations. So I dismiss that idea completely.When VanAirsdale attempted a follow up question, Quinto responded, "I don't really understand that line of questioning." I feel the awkwardness in the room just writing about this, so I'm going to stop. You can read the rest at Movieline.
