I didn’t know that about Debra

And for Clint Eastwood, I think I had heard that he leaned right, and Million dollar baby was about fighting, though there might have been that in there.

Excerpt of interview by Bill O'Reilly with actress Patricia Heaton -- The O'Reilly Factor, October 1, 2002

O'REILLY: All right. A couple of interesting things in your book, and we -- put it this way, ladies and gentlemen. If we have somebody on here, the book's not going to be a dog. If the book's bad, we're not going to have them on here.

So you are pro-life in a town...

HEATON: That's right.

O'REILLY: ... that is almost 100 percent pro-choice. How does that impact on you?

HEATON: Well, you know, I'm a chairman of Feminists for Life, and so I think that, because of that, we have an interesting stand that most people don't -- haven't heard before, which is being pro-life can be a feminist issue.

The early feminists were pro-life. And really abortion is a huge disservice to women, and it hasn't been presented that way. So -- so it's a -- there's a sort of an in for me because of that take on it.

O'REILLY: Do you take any heat from your peers out there?

HEATON: I did. I mean, I did originally. I vote Republican because of my pro-life stance, and, of course, that was a real hot-button issue when Bill Clinton was first elected.

I mean, people really -- I wore a Quayle-Bush button, and literally people would stop and look at the button the and look at me and give me dirty looks and, you know, say nasty things to me.

I think, since 9/11, a lot of that has calmed down a little bit.
