Luke Evans plays cocky villain Gaston in Disney’s new live-action “Beauty and the Beast.”
And while speaking about what it was like to portray the infamous Disney bad guy, Evans seemingly low-key compared his villainy to President Donald Trump.
“He’s a bigoted, chauvinistic, self-absorbed man who, once he’s told ‘no,’ is driven by jealousy and revenge to fuel the fear of quite an idiotic group of villagers to go kill something they’ve never seen before. I mean, it resonates massively to what’s happening in the political climate throughout the world now,” Evans told Entertainment Weekly.
Hm… who could he possibly be referring to who is a “bigoted, chauvinistic, self-absorbed man” who goes crazy by hearing the word “no?” We have a guess. And about that “idiotic group of villagers” … well, you get the idea.
Disney’s live-action version of “Beauty and the Beast,” starring Evans, Emma Watson, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor and Emma Thompson hits theaters March 17.
