Ben Affleck's Top 10 Gayest Moments
Discussing gay marriage at a Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Caucus meeting during the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston, Affleck said, "I have enough trouble figuring out how to get married that I don’t need the federal or state government telling me what to do.”
That same year he said, "I don't think the government should be involved in any way in people's bedrooms or lives. With so much hatred and unpleasantness in the world, why would you want to get in the way of people who love each other marrying each other? Anybody who wants to be able to get married to anybody else should be able to. It's not my business." A portion of this quote was recently recirculated by Freedom to Marry in celebrating Oscar-nominated supporters of marriage equality.
