Barack Obama makes Drew Barrymore Cry

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 Obama's 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 judgement above someone or against someone," she added.

Barrymore, who has endorsed Barack in the Harper Bazaar's issue, seems to be pretty affected by the Democrat's speech.

"It's the first time I've really admitted I'm a Democrat," she said.

"McCain 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.
