  • I don't put any stock in what Hollywood LIBERALS think about politics, the environment or other social issues. ACTORS are ENTERTAINERS...they play "make believe!" Their job is to be convincing, to portray a character in a certain way--they way they or a director WANTS the character to be portrayed.

    ANYONE can be an actor...it's not like they are a chosen species with a special gift that makes them experts in anything but acting.

  • And not ANYONE can be an actor. It does take talent. Some people just DON'T have it.

  • I haven't seen it...we don't have HBO, but I'm sure it'll be out on DVD soon enough, but honestly if the liberals in Hollywood put it out....it's probably not accurate nor something I want to see.

  • Ditto on the land of make believe, Anything to keep a wrinkly actor relevant.

  • i haven't seen it and i don't quite understand how being an actor nullifies your opinions and beliefs on current events or politics.
