This list of conservative actors includes well known righties 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 alphabetically by first name, but you can sort by any column. 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.
