Check out the reasons the conservative actor turns down most of the interviews he’s offered these days.
Actor James Woods is more outspoken than ever about his conservative political and cultural beliefs. He’s earned nearly 700,000 followers on Twitter thanks to his sharp and constant commentary about the news — and about the Left.
Surprisingly, the actor doesn’t often take his opinions beyond social media. He doesn’t pop up in many interviews or throw himself at the press. It appears this is for a very good reason.
A writer at Independent Journal Review recently attempted to interview Woods to get the artist’s opinion about Johnny Depp’s assassination “joke” — and Woods politely declined. He explained why he generally avoids the press these days — even press of which he approves.
“Well, I’m deeply flattered, but turn down hundreds of requests to do interviews. I’m a big fan of IJR, but I must graciously decline. I find that Twitter makes it impossible for the sleaze liberal press to take my words out of context. If I were to do an IJR interview, surely CNN and NYT would misrepresent my thoughts and words. As honorable as IJR may be, they can’t stop others from engaging in malicious behavior. Sadly, free speech is dead in liberal America,” wrote Woods to the reporter who requested the interview.
