James Caan Refuses to Be the Typical 'Hollywood Liberal'
FoxNews ^ | 8/11/10 | Hollie McKay

Posted on 08/11/2010 7:21:43 AM PDT by MissTed

Veteran actor James Caan let people in on a little secret last week. After 46 successful years among Hollywood’s most outspoken liberal stars, he’s speaking up about breaking the mold.

“I'm an ultra conservative,” he said at Moet & Chandon’s 6th Annual Hollyshorts Film Festival Opening Night Celebration in Los Angeles.

“I'm not a G** damn Hollywood liberal, I'm not,” he said, adding he only watches Fox News.

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."

Same here. And Kathy Bates. She could play crazy really well.

Still a very poignant movie about the individual.

He claims he´s conservative, but clams-up on one of the most significant social issues of the day. Hmmm....

I understand his position. I'm also conservative on all but a very few issues, one of which is gay marriage. I really don't give a crap if a couple of poofters want to marry each other.
What it will do, is enrich a bunch of lawyers when they split up.

For all you know this isn’t the first time he’s spoken out but just the first time he’s been quoted...that you are aware of.

Rollerball . . . the original . . . the good version.

I liked him best in The Killer Elite with Robert Duval, another great Hollywood conservative.

Yes, Misery was a good movie. He played the conservative in that one and of course, Kathy Bates played the typical liberal.

Rollerball. The corporations try to stifle the individual, and the individual wins.

We do, even here in CA where we had our popular vote stolen by a homo judge.

But, yes, by all means it´s your right not to care as your country sinks evermore deeply into oblivion. Enjoy.

This way the new found Hollywood conservatives can regain some following with conservative movie fans.

I think older actor's careers are what they are. They've accomplished all they're going to so it's ok for them to speak the truth. I think these younger actors who keep spouting leftist trash and devilish nonsense are trying to stay on everyone's 'A' lists.
