Hollywood has long been considered an overwhelmingly liberal community, but given Clint Eastwood’s “surprise” blockbuster appearance in support of GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney this week – are the tables starting to turn?
“God bless Clint Eastwood for coming and supporting Romney. It shows that he is interested in the outcome of America,” Oscar-winning producer Gerald Molen, who’s latest project is the controversial documentary “2016: Obama’s America,” told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “There are those of us who are trying to educate our Democratic friends in Hollywood as fast as we can.”
Eastwood, arguably one of the biggest actor/directors of our time, addressed the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Thursday evening to great anticipation, applause and laughter given the surprisingly bizarre nature of his speech – talking to an empty chair. Other big names that performed and/or attended the RNC this week included Journey, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Taylor Hicks, Kid Rock, Dave Navarro, 3 Doors Down, Zac Brown, and Sara Evans.
