Add Clint Eastwood to the growing line of Republicans throwing their weight behind an amicus brief filed with the Supreme Court in support of gay marriage, reports Breitbart. The empty-chair whisperer and longtime Libertarian/Republican is perhaps the biggest name yet to sign the brief, and he hasn't exactly been shy in the past about his views: He told GQ in 2011 that he doesn't "give a f*** about who wants to get married to anybody else" and that instead of "all this bullsh** about 'sanctity,'" we should "just give everybody the chance to have the life they want." CNN notes that last year he told Ellen DeGeneres that his attitude is "part of the Libertarian idea: Leave everybody alone." (More Clint Eastwood stories.)
