George Clooney has suggested that Mitt Romney is on the wrong side of gay rights.

After Sunday's Golden Globes, Clooney was asked by a reporter, “What's your opinion on Mitt Romney since he appears to be the frontrunner for the Republicans and he's been pretty anti-gay?”

Clooney said he wasn't too concerned about a specific candidate until “there's an actual nominee,” then added: “I think it's the wrong side of history. I think everyone sort of understands it might be the last leg of the civil rights movement. I do believe that.”

“It certainly is not the wedge issue it was in 2004,” Clooney said. “And that's a good sign.”

The 50-year-old Clooney will play lead attorney David Boies in the Los Angeles reading of the play 8.

8, which was written by Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, is based on the trial over the constitutionality of California's gay marriage ban, Proposition 8.

Joining Clooney at the March 3 reading will be Jamie Lee Curtis, Matt Bomer, Martin Sheen, Jane Lynch and George Takei, to name a few.
