Actor Rupert Everett has received a barrage of "hate mail" and "death threats" after he made a series of controversial comments about gay parents.

The openly homosexual star came under fire from campaign groups after he stated that children "need a father and a mother," adding, "(I) can't think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads."
He subsequently clarified his remarks, insisting he is not "against" same-sex couples having kids, but he has now revealed that he has since received a number of nasty messages.

Everett tells British newspaper the Daily Telegraph, "I've now had all this hate mail and there have been death threats, too... All the queens out there now have it in for me. I'm loathed by them. I'm having to take evasive action."
