Watertown's Eliza Dushku Dishes About Mitt Romney

The presidential candidate served as bishop at Dusku's church when she was young.

Watertown's Eliza Dushku Dishes About Mitt Romney

Actress and Watertown-native Eliza Dushku chatted with New York Magazine about growing up as a Mormon, and her bishop when she was young – Mitt Romney.

Dushku said she is no longer "very Mormon" in the piece that ran in this month's New York Magazine. She said she has problems with the Mormon Church's stand on some issues, including women's rights – an issue over which her mother, Judy Dushku, often clashed with Romney, according to the article.

Dusku said that one of her first crushes, when she was 6, was on the man who would go on to become governor of Massachusetts and the current Republican Presidential nominee-to-be. That ended, however, "when I was old enough to hear what was coming out of his mouth," she said, according to New York Magazine.
