BAffleck122212_12_X17crop230.jpgBen Affleck has admitted to enjoying politics, but the hunky actor isn't running for Senate just yet. The father of three released the following statement:

    “I love Massachusetts and our political process, but I am not running for office. Right now it's a privilege to spend my time working with Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI), supporting our veterans, drawing attention to the great many who go hungry in the U.S. everyday and using filmmaking to entertain and foster discussion about issues like our relationship to Iran.”

Over the weekend, Affleck appeared on CBS' Face The Nation to promote Argo and said he has "a great fondness and admiration for the political process in this country" ... leaving many asking if he'd be seeking a Senate seat in Massachusetts.

Argo is a CIA thriller about an attempted rescue of American diplomatic personnel in Tehran during the 1979 hostage crisis.

Back to daddy duty, Ben.
