Movie Stars Politics and You

This morning came across a gossip piece about actor Robert Duvall and his support of John McCain.
Dennis Hopper is a Republican and since finding that out I do not watch any movie with him in it.

Robert Duvall, Bare-Lipped Pit Bull

Hey, Robert Duvall, tell us how you really feel! The Oscar winner took the stage to introduce Sarah Palin at a $1,500-a-head GOP fundraiser Monday at the Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner — but first he took the opportunity to name names and settle scores.

“It bothers me that certain people in the Republican Party are attacking the McCain-Palin ticket,” he said, according to a pool report. “Like the super-nerd George — what’s his name? George Wills[sic] . . . and Tommy Thompson. The original block of wood.”

He continued: “And on the other side of the aisle, you have some pretty despicable people.” Duvall called out liberal NYT columnist Frank Rich, a former theater critic: “He knew nothing about acting.” Then there was the time he met Gloria Steinem: “She totally ignored the woman standing behind me. Totally ignored her. So much for her feminism.” Duvall was more restrained when it came to Barack Obama: “As far as I’m concerned, we’ve got to keep this guy out of the White House.”

I’ve heard of people not watching Sean Penn movies or Barbra Streisand records because of their liberal politics.

Do you not buy movies or CDs because of a star’s politics?
