If you watch a lot of cable news, then there’s a popular conception that you’re likely familiar with: that Hollywood is full of liberals. No doubt, the liberals outnumber the conservatives in Tinseltown by a pretty wide margin. However, the ranks of the Hollywood republicans are not trim; there are quite a few celebrities who hold red-state beliefs. Given the fact that they might catch some wrath from their left-leaning co-stars and colleagues, though, many of these republican celebrities tend to keep their political beliefs on the down low. But, we’re gifted at Internet sleuthing, and we’ve found 15 republican celebrities that might shock you. Let’s go!
1. Ben Stein
You know, we haven’t seen a lot of Ben Stein lately. Doesn’t Clear Eyes need to start making new commercials? We don’t know what product to use when we do things that make our eyes red and bloodshot. Not saying what those things are, but we think you can imagine. At any rate, Ben Stein is a lifelong republican. Little known fact: before he became the actor you know him as today, he was actually a speechwriter for one Richard Milhous Nixon.
