Clint Eastwood isn’t exactly for gay marriage, but he isn’t exactly against it either. The Hollywood legend told Ellen Degeneres yesterday that who you marry should be none of the government’s business.
“It’s a part of the libertarian idea: Leave everybody alone!”
The actor-director went on to say that the United States is facing some serious problems right now and that politicians are wasting too much time discussing gay marriage.
“The condition of society right now with the high unemployment rates, and the tremendous debt increasing, and the government spending, you’d think there’d be a lot to think about, except worrying about what gay marriage is about.”
Eastwood’s comments on Ellen reiterate the actor’s belief about gay marriage. In 2011, the actor told GQ that he doesn’t “give a f**k” if a gay couple wants to get married.
“These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage? I don’t give a f*** about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of. They go on and on with all this bulls*** about “sanctity” — don’t give me that sanctity crap! Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want.”
Here’s the video from Ellen.
