Stars And Politics: Which Celebrities Lean To The Right?
Some celebrities are vocal about their politics; others are not. The political leanings of Hollywood stars do not appear to be dictated by either age or gender. Celebrities who reportedly lean to the right range from hot young stars to veteran performers with a long list of award-winning movies to their credit. A Fox News report compiled an extensive list of some of the biggest names in movies, music, and television, pairing with their political party. Some lean left, some lean right, but all reportedly have firm beliefs on the best course of governance for America.
Rizzoli and Isles star Angie Harmon leans right and delivered a speech during the Republican National Convention in 2004.
Rapper 50 Cent allegedly leans to the right and once noted he would vote for President George W. Bush if it weren’t for his felony conviction.
Bo Derek appeared at the Republican National Conventions to support both George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also leans to the right attended the Republican National Convention in support of George W. Bush in 2000.
Stephen Baldwin attended a Tea Party demonstration in 2009 at the US Capitol Building.
Kelsey Grammer campaigned for Senator John McCain when he ran for president in 2008.
Bruce Willis may not be a card-carrying member of the Republican Party but has stated he is a Republican “only as far as” wanting a small and less intrusive government goes, according to interview excerpts republished by Fox News. Perhaps Bruce Willis is more of a Libertarian – fiscally conservative, small government lover, yet socially liberal thinker.
Robert Downey Jr. sounds like he may be a right leaner:
“I have a really interesting political point of view and it’s not always something I say too loud at dinner tables here. But you can’t go from a $2,000-a-night suite at La Mirage to a penitentiary, and really understand it, and come out a liberal.”
The Hills actress Lauren Conrad is a registered Republican, according to Fox News.

Mean Girls actress Lacey Chabert also endorsed John McCain during the 2008 election.
Renowned actor Robert Duvall was a guest at the 2008 Republican National Convention and once supported Rudy Giuliani’s run for the presidency in 2007.
Vince Vaugh and Owen Wilson reportedly got into the Wedding Crashers spirit while filming the hit comedy and tried to sneak into a DC Young Republicans gathering. During an interview with USA Today, Owen Wilson maintained that Vince Vaughn really is a Republican but could not convince the political party hosts of his right-leaning ways.
Funny man Adam Sandler also made contributions to Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign and is a registered Republican.
