“I was ultimately making a ‘Sesame Street’ argument. You don’t judge a whole group of people based on the actions of a few . . . . I think I’d rather tell the truth and say what I believe in and make people unhappy than sort of pretend to think something else to accommodate them and try to be liked. That’s just the way it goes and I don’t think I’m any great champion of anything, but if they’re going to put me on a show, I’m going to say what I think.” Ben Affleck, on his very public argument with Bill Maher about Islam.
