Ben Affleck: Maybe Actors Shouldn't Announce Partisan Affiliation, Says He Feels Like a Prop For Democrat Fundraisers Sometimes

Claims he's not a blindly partisan Democrat


Ben Affleck has made it known in Hollywood that he is a Democrat, and he's not sure that's a good thing.

"…You can bifurcate your audience. When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn't like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions," Affleck told Playboy in a recent interview. "That sh-t fogs the mind when you should be paying attention and be swept into the illusion."
