Actors Whose Movies Americans Avoid Because Of Political Beliefs
If you know a certain actor or actress has a certain political belief, does that influence whether or not you’ll watch one of their movies? If you answered yes, you’re not the only one. Plenty of Americans skip films that feature actors whose political beliefs differ from their own.
The Hollywood Reports discovered that 52% of Republicans and 36% of Democrats say they avoid seeing movies with certain actors because they don’t agree with their political beliefs. For Democrats, that list of actors includes Mel Gibson, Jon Voight, Charlton Heston and Arnold Schwarzenegger. As for Republicans, they tend to avoid films starring Sean Penn, Whoopi Goldberg, Jane Fonda and Oprah Winfrey. How about you? Any actors you avoid for political reaons?
