Skip to comments.James Caan Refuses to Be the Typical 'Hollywood Liberal'

Veteran actor James Caan let people in on a little secret last week. After 46 successful years among Hollywoods most outspoken liberal stars, hes speaking up about breaking the mold.
I'm an ultra conservative, he said at Moet & Chandons 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 doesnt 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."

I already liked him before, and now I like him even better.
I think his acting style where he speaks so softly you can hardly hear him is annoying. Ok once it was cute but he keeps doing it.
A piece of advice, James. Stay away from Hollywood toll plazas!
Wow! A Hollywood actor with class!
Like Halley’s comet,you see one every 70-something years.
New York ones, too.
Is anybody else imagining that shirt front with brains all over it?
He was great in THIEF
I liked him before and couldn’t exactly say why. Maybe it was the feeling that he was a real man and not a pretend man. This coming out confirms it.
Still, it gets old when now that certain Hollywierdos get long in the tooth then they suddenly “see the light” and come out of the closet as really being conservatives all along.
I far as I’m concerned it’s nothing more than realizing that nobody watches them anymore and the spotlight is on the so-called “hot movie stars”.
This way the new found Hollywood conservatives can regain some following with conservative movie fans.
Heck ...Most of the loudmouth Hollywood rif-raf are former parking valets or were manicurists before making films; they were/are drug addicts, drunks, spouse abusers, sex addicts, etc. .... THAT'S how ‘clever’ they are!! Yup...we sure need advice on politics from THEM!!
James Caan forever; Ed Harris never. There has to be a good story or two about Mr. Caan if he is an ‘ultra-conservative’.
He was best in “Way of the Gun” and “A Bridge Too Far”
I liked him in Misery
I like him more too,I just hope he knows that he won’t be receiving the normal amount of scripts to read from here on!
He claims he´s conservative, but clams-up on one of the most significant social issues of the day. Hmmm....
