Actress Christina Ricci has slammed American PRESIDENT George W Bush's move to outlaw gay marriage - branding it "offensive and disgusting".

Ricci, who played Charlize Theron's lesbian lover in acclaimed movie MONSTER, believes love and marriage should not be interfered with by politics.

She says, "It's offensive and disgusting that somebody's pursuit of happiness, love and marriage has become such a huge political debate."

Her actor boyfriend Adam Goldberg adds that the controversial issue has inspired them to vote "even more Democratic that we usually vote".
