Actors You May Not Have Realized Are Republican

Updated December 2, 2020 3.3m views142 items

List RulesThe below actors must have shown public support for Republican candidates or conservative causes.

This list of conservative actors includes well known right-wingers as well as a few surprises. It includes photos & biographical info - and contains current and historic famous actors who are Republicans. What actors are Republicans? More than you might think, considering Hollywood's reputation for being liberal. Obvious Republican actors, like Clint Eastwood, are on this list, but there are also a few surprises– like Vince Vaughn and Adam Sandler. Republican actors are, of course, entitled to their own beliefs like anyone else, but many fans may be surprised that their favorite funny actors are also involved in politics.

This list of Republican actors in Hollywood are listed by which stars you might find most surprising. This list includes both right wing movie stars who have declared themselves to be full-fledged conservatives, as well as actors who have at one point publicly supported a Republican candidate or candidates. All conservative movie stars and actors who have donated to the Republican party are also included here.

If you've ever wondered about the political views of Kevin James, Kurt Russell, or Adam Sandler, than you might want to check out this list. Some of these Republican actors and actresses might be some of your favorite stars!

For a full list of all Republican celebrities, including singers, writers, and TV personalities, see this list of Republican celebrities, and for a full list of all Hollywood conservatives, see Conservatives in Hollywood.
