One of the stars of upcoming film The A-Team has said that acting is “kinda gay”.

Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, the Ultimate Fighting champion, told the Los Angeles Times that it “makes you soft”.

“Acting is kind of gay. It makes you soft,” he said.

“You got all these people combing your hair and putting a coat over your shoulders when you’re cold. I don’t want a coat over my shoulders! I’m a tough-ass motherf**ker!”

Jackson also complained about the Canadian filming location used for the picture, comparing it to legendary gay destination San Francisco.

“Vancouver strikes me as a San Francisco kind of place,” he added.

“And I don’t want motherf**kers getting ideas about me.

“I feel in my heart I’m the toughest motherf**ker on the planet. And I don’t want nothing changing my train of thought. If you don’t believe that when we step inside the [Ultimate Fighting Championship ring], it shows.”
