Washington, Oct 7 (ANI): Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore has revealed that she burst into tears when US Presidential candidate discussed gay issues.

Barrymore said that she ended up crying after listening to Obamas speech about the difficulties faced by a gay person in the present scenario.

“When I heard him speak about a gay person never having to sit outside the hospital room with their loved one sick inside, I burst into tears because so many people I care about are homosexual and it was profound to have someone be sensitive to that,” US magazine quoted Barrymore, as telling Harper’’s Bazaar.

“That’’s the kind of world I want to live in, where we”re not holding our own principles in judgment above someone or against someone, she added.

Barrymore, who has endorsed Barack in the Harper Bazaars issue, seems to be pretty affected by the Democrats speech.

“It’’s the first time I”ve really admitted I”m a Democrat, she said.

“Mc Cain is a good person, and he does care, but he has voted against things that are shocking as far as people’’s liberties and economic choices, she added. (ANI)
