Actor/musician tells LifeZette of industry’s blatant political blacklist — ‘this is a reality we deal with’
Many celebrities enjoy using their platform of fame and stardom to lecture the public about social and political issues — and by and large, the media praise them for those opinions.
That’s as long as the viewpoints match the same liberal perspectives of those doing the praising.
The script is flipped for conservatives in Hollywood. Being outspoken about right-of-center issues is a risky proposition that can seriously impact a person’s career. Consider briefly the names of some avowed conservative performers: Clint Eastwood, Bruce Willis, James Woods, Jon Voight and Gary Sinise. There are others, of course, but these are players with long-established careers who, once entrenched, found enough security to occasionally put out their opinions.
