Washington, Aug 4 (ANI): Hollywood stars Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and their pregnant wives turned up at a Miami fundraiser for presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Barrack Obama on Saturday.
Both the couples attended the orientation at club Set to pledge their support for Obama.
According to reports, the actors also delivered speeches from the stage.
Jennifer Garner gave the first speech supporting Obama, and she was very witty, clever and funny, Peoples Magazine quoted a source as saying.
She was followed by her husband Ben, then Matt Damon. The men gave serious political speeches on how the country needs change, the source said.
Best of friends, Damon and Affleck made it pretty evident that they are supporting Obama over McCain, as he is a deserving candidate and a man of principles, who would head the country towards righteousness.
For a lot of reasons, but mostly because I dont like the path this countrys on and if McCain is elected well be continuing down that same path, Damon said, when asked as to why he was supporting Obama.
The stars seemed to be in jolly good moods, and were friendly to all the guests.
Later, the stars left in a Limo to attend a party at Anthony Kennedy Shrivers Miami Beach home. (ANI)
Superficial celebrities voting for a superficial celebrity.
This is very IMPORTANT what these MAJOR LEADERS have to say!
The impact of this event could be hugh and series!
Time for another McCain ad... Using Ben Affleck and Matt Damon instead of the other two bimbos...
"The men gave serious political speeches on how the country needs change,
The talent level is about the same.
Ben Affleck did direct on of the better movies of last year, Gone Baby Gone. In front of the camera he does not have much talent.
Damon on the other hand is a pretty talented actor. He isn’t on my list of favorite actors, but he is far from being untalented and there are many far worse than him in Hollywood.
Matt... Matt Damon!
What makes these idiots think they’re experts about politics? Because they’re rich? Because they’re famous? Because their “job” involves pretending to be people they’re not?
There was a time when actors were considered to be on the same level as circus freaks. Perhaps a move back toward that attitude would teach these ignorant, loudmouthed morons some well-needed humility.
And to think I used to like Jennifer Garner. She’s not a tough chick, she just plays one on TV.
Aff-leck and Clooney haven’t had successful picture in years and they can’t figure out why.
Sure, he supports their “right” to marry.
He was "Daredevil".
Dumb and Dumber
Now why ain't I surprised Edith?????
“O” Archie we better go and change our registration to Dimorat cause a washed up Ben Aflake says we must vote for Obama.
