Affleck Rips Into Right-Wing Politics
    #2018453 - 10/17/03 06:44 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

By no means am I Ben Affleck fan.. other then the Kevin Smith trilogy, that is :smile:  But I mean, come on, even Ben knows.  Have you people no shame?

Article

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - Ben Affleck is getting political.

The Hollywood hunk received the Spirit of Liberty award from the liberal People for the American Way Tuesday night (Oct. 14).

In his acceptance speech, Affleck, 31, attacked President Bush's "dangerous right-wing" policies, claiming they erode civil liberties, according to media sources.

He also discussed fellow celeb Arnold Schwarzenegger's recent election to the governorship in California, comparing what he called "the dawn of the Schwarzenegger era in American politics" to the decline of the Roman Empire.

Affleck was honored for his work on behalf of children's rights and voter registration.

The actor hopes that the recent media attention regarding his relationship to Jennifer Lopez can be put to good use, stating, "I accept the award in the hope that the absurd amount of publicity I received lately ... might be directed at something more significant."

Other stars attending the People For The American Way event included Harrison Ford, Bruce Willis and the Dixie Chicks.

Affleck appears next opposite Uma Thurman in John Woo's "Paycheck," opening Christmas Day.

Exactly. Unless he's for the drug war.
