WATCH: George Clooney Speaks Out for LGBT Rights After Globes Win

Following his Best Actor win at the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night, George Clooney seized another opportunity to stomp for equality and dissed Mitt Romney's presidential bid.

After accepting his award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his performance in The Descendants, Clooney answered questions from journalists gathered backstage. One asked the actor, who'll soon star in a one-night only reading of Dustin Lance Black's play 8 as Prop. 8 attorney David Boies, his opinion of Mitt Romney and his antigay record.

"Well, I'm not much concerned until there's an actual nominee," Clooney answered. "But 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. So I think that at some point, it's certainly not the wedge issue it was in 2004, so that's a good sign. So those are important things to me, I think."
