Hollywood is still in a tizzy - days later - over President Obama’s announcement Wednesday that he supports same-sex marriages.
After his historic proclamation, celebs from the right and the left continue to weigh in on his controversial position.
The cast of the new film “Battleship” certainly had something to say about it Thursday night at the Los Angeles premiere of the film.
Star Brooklyn Decker said on the red carpet that she's "very proud and excited" about Obama's announcement. "I think it was a huge accomplishment for Americans, and I think it’s about time," she added.
Actress Malin Akerman (who isn't in the movie) echoed Decker’s sentiments.
“I think it’s great when a president stands up and says what he means,” she said. “I just feel like there is a lot of sort of wishy-washy comments in politics, and I think he took a stand, and I respect him for that.”
“Battleship” director Peter Berg, however, was a little more skeptical about the motivation behind the announcement.
“Two things: I’m all for it,” Berg said. “I think that ... 80% of what we hear from our president from now until the election is about votes. So somebody added up the numbers and said there’s however many male and female homosexuals in the United States, and they have however many parents."
To be clear, he continued, "I’m for them, and I’m for the marriage, but it’s all numbers now. So anything that happens, I'm like, ‘Oh, that must be a smart move.’ Somebody is looking at votes. That’s what I think.”
Elsewhere, round one between Bristol Palin and JWoww of “Jersey Shore” may have gone to MTV's reality star.
"Bristol should keep her uneducated, ignorant mouth shut,” the 26-year-old said of the 21-year-old mom. “If you're living in the past you wouldn't have a kid without marriage. Hypocrite. It's 2012!"
She wasn't done there, though. "My best friend will get married one day and not just have civil union with his man," Ms. Woww added. "Stop hating people."
