During an interview with the Daily Beast, the 33-year-old actress admitted that she moved away from the church, which held strong views about pre-marital sex and gays, as she was in love with a "drag queen" guy, and believed he "couldn't go to hell" as he was "amazing", MVP Entertainment India reported.
Alba has previously also spoken out on behalf of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in 2006 and echoed similar sentiments of her being bothered by the church's stance on these two issues, as well as the Bible, which lacked reference to strong female role-models.
'Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill for', starring Alba, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Eva Green, Josh Brolin etc, is set to release in Indian theaters on September 5.
