“I just realized when I got asked that question that it was the last thing I wanted to do. Plus, I kind of felt like I just got past all this bile in my own life, and then you’re going to just jump back into this ugliness? I mean, talk about long knives. It’s horrendous way to live. You know, your family and blah blah blah. I guess I lost a little bit of that idealism. I don’t know. So, no, the answer is: I don’t want to run for office.” — Ben Affleck, shooting down his political aspirations after realizing it’s a terrible way to live your life. [GQ]
