PARK CITY, Utah -- If Juan Pablo Galavis is looking for forgiveness after his anti-gay comments, he need look no further than Lance Bass.
"I don't hate him at all," Bass said. "I still think he's cute."
Galavis, star of ABC's "The Bachelor," apologized last week after telling a journalist that he didn't think a gay or bisexual bachelor would set a good example for kids. He also said gays were more "pervert, in a sense."
Galavis, who grew up in Venezuela and lives in Miami, later said he respects gay people and blamed a language barrier for his use of the word "pervert."
Bass, who is gay, says he has a massive crush on Galavis.
"Of course it's disappointing, because you don't want someone who (you) actually love to have those thoughts," said the former 'N Sync singer.
