Ellen DeGeneres is just joking when she’s telling Clint Eastwood, on her most recent show, that he had such a quiet summer that his name barely made headlines. Below is a video of some of the topics they tackled in that interview.
The actor and director is now promoting a new movie but, because of his recent appearance at the Republican National Convention, he’s also forced to talk politics whether he likes it or not.
Eastwood, as must already be known, caused quite a ruckus with his unscripted speech at the Convention, where he yelled at an empty chair / conversed with an invisible Obama.
Speaking about politics, the Hollywood icon reveals that he’s not on the same page as Presidential candidate Mitt Romney as far as the gay marriage issue is concerned.
As he sees it, there are much more serious issues to focus on right now than fight on whether two people of the same gender have the right to marry or not.
“The condition of society right now, with the high unemployment rates and the tremendous debt we're increasing and the government spending, we'd think there'd be [many more worthy issues] to think about [rather] that worrying about gay marriage,” Eastwood says.
He also believes that the US would function much better if everybody just left everybody else alone and not interfere.
“You're socially liberal, leave everybody alone, but you believe in fiscal responsibility and you believe in government staying out of your life,” he says.
If Sodom and Gommorah was a reality then the topic about same sex marriage is very serious. How can two people of the same sex consumate this holy matrimony in any way which does not seem as a perversion. This is lust between two lovers not a bride and groom as two beloved people. Passion is diffrent than love although a very real and strong feeling love is good and passion is not good. Same sex marriage is impossible it contradicts the meaning of marriage. In the rules of pinochle you need a marriage for trump only a King and Queen of the same suit applys to the rule. If rules such as a ruler a yard stick driving on the road rules are not applied then the rule is only a desire to return to chaos.
Well,,Eastwood is my favorite actor(especially westerns,,Hang Em High by far being my favorite)and I do go along with him when he states::Leave everybody alone to a certain degree of course. As far as Gay Marriage is concerned,NO I don't agree but it's their buisness of what they do!!
