Actors you were bummed to find out were Republican...
Robert Downey, Jr.
Can't believe he went all Pro Bush...
[I have to admit this actually surprised me as well. Even more of a surprise than finding out that Richard Feynman was also a Republican.]
Tom Selleck. I thought he would be too smart for it.
[I figured Selleck for a conservative...which is why Rosie O'Donnell went nuts on him.]
Jimmy Stewart. From all his movies you got the idea that he was an empathetic humanist. He was a solid repub though.
[No surprise there. I already knew this about Jimmy.]
If he were alive today, I think he wouldn't still be a republcian.
[Somehow I can't picture Jimmy Stewart hanging out with the ACORN crowd.]
William Holden and Barbara Stanwyck... were two more old school republican, Eisenhower types
[William Holden was Best Man at Ronald Reagan's wedding. Barbara Stanwyck? She was the wife of Robert Taylor who testified in Congress about the Reds in Hollywood.]
Bruce Willis, Dennis Hopper
[And Willis had the sense to ditch that airhead Demi Moore.]
wow, would not have expected Dennis Hopper that is sad
[May we send you a consolation card?]
Patricia Heaton. I absolutely despise her since I found out she's a Republican. Especially after I read some of the comments she has made. Blech!!! That's the only one that bothers me. Don't have any negative feelings about the others I know of who are Republican.
[Send her to The Hague for political Thought Crimes.]
I can't watch her anymore. She is a good comedic actress. However, once I know something like that, it just destroys my image of them.
[Is Playboy Playmate Petra Verkaik a Republican? Somehow I don't think her politics would be my main concern if I ever happen to bump into her.]
Robert Duvall. he's a REAL asshole, too. smug, arrogant, uber macho prick. so that makes it easier to loathe him, unlike Downey, who I've always liked a lot can't believe he swings that way must've been all the drugs
[Was Gabby Hayes a Republican? That knowledge would greatly influence how I perceive Roy Rogers movies.]
What??? Robert Downey Jr.?? Is that true? I had not heard that. My wife will be crushed when she hears this -- he is one of her favorite actors.
[Your wife will have to retire her bong pipe.]
[Kind of hard to think of Dirty Harry as a kneejerk liberal.]
Stallone. Who coulda guessed?
[Easy to guess that when you watch the Rocky Balboa movies.]
[No surprise there. And I've been a big fan of his since watching him in "True West." A great play.]
[No surprise now but years ago I sort of had him pegged for a liberal.]
[Jesus was a Republican. Remember that.]
Mary Tyler Moore told Parade last year how much she loves Bill O'Reilly and said she'd campaign for McCain/Palin if asked
[FUn Fact: Morey Amsterdam from the Dick Van Dycke show was a big supporter of Ronald Reagan.]
Adam Sandler shattered my illusions.
[Another Republican. I loved him as Dave Buzznik in "Anger Management." Was Dr. Buddy Rydell also a Republican?]
[Bob Hope must have rubbed off on her.]
Here is a list of them: MEATLOAF? And, Cindy Williams of Lavern & Shirley
[I never thought about it before but Meatloaf's political leanings surprises me as well.]
R. Lee Ermey is a Republican?!
[How could you possibly think that Sgt. Hartman would be a liberal Democrat?]
Micky Dolenz of the Monkees. He apparently appeared as a headline act at a teabag event in Texas. Bummer.
Drew Carey. Majorly bummed about that
[Then I better not tell you about Lou Costello.]
