5.) James Caan
Who knows how many Hollywood celebrities are closet conservatives? After announcing his “ultra-conservatism” to the world at a film festival last month, legendary and likable tough guy James Caan exemplified why we may never know.
Caan, who was at the event promoting his involvement with the online platform Openfilm.com, also added that he doesn’t think Hollywood actors need to comment on every single political issue. When Pop Tarts questioned him on California courts deeming Proposition 8, which bans same sex marriage, “unconstitutional,” he preferred to keep his lips sealed.
“I don’t want to comment on that. I’ll let those other geniuses do that – all those actors who like to find a stage to push their agendas,” he said. “They don’t have political science degrees… I certainly don’t. I’ll leave it to Sean Penn or Barbara Streisand to comment on that.”
Indeed, while there are certainly outspoken conservatives in Hollywood, none seem as intent on leveraging their bully pulpit to promote their personal politics quite like those on the Left.
