Famous Republicans

Despite the common belief that Hollywood stars are all Democrats, there are actually quite a few names that say otherwise. These celebs believe in conservative family values and tax deductions. Here are some of the most famous Republicans.

Sarah Michelle Gellar









Sarah Michelle Gellar is a registered Republican, but the actress hasn’t spoken openly about her beliefs. What she has done is actively give to charities, including breast cancer research, CARE, and Habitat for Humanity. She’s said: “My mother taught me a long time ago that even when you have nothing, there’s ways to give back.”

Vince Vaughn

Premiere Of DreamWorks Pictures' "Delivery Man" - Arrivals








The Wedding Crashers star was an outspoken supporter of Ron Paul’s presidential candidacy both in 2008 and 2012. Vaughn wrote a glowing blurb for Paul’s latest book, End the Fed, in which the actor said: “Everyone must read this book — Congressmen and college students, Democrats and Republicans — all Americans.”

Tim Allen









Tim is a genuine Republican, both on and off screen. In his TV show Last Man Standing, his character, Mike Baxter, is a Conservative Republican who supports Mitt Romney and openly slams Obama. Tim Allen helped raise funds for Republican Presidential candidate John McCain in the 2008 election as well as other candidates over the years.

Lindsay Lohan









While it’s unclear what party Lindsay Lohan belongs to, she’s definitely leaning GOP. When asked who she’d be voting for during the last elections, Lohan told E! News, “I just think employment is really important right now. So, as of now, Mitt Romney.”

Jessica Simpson









Texas-born Jessica Simpson is a Republican, though she’s wary about mixing her career and political beliefs. She infamously turned down an invite from President Bush to a 2006 GOP fundraiser, saying it would politicize her charitable work with Operation Smile. Her father, though, reaffirmed she was a big Bush supporter. “We are huge fans of him and of his family, his girls,” Simpson said. “Jessica loves the heck out of him.”

Mel Gibson








Mel Gibson has been described as “ultraconservative.” He has told Playboy Bill Clinton was a “low-level opportunist,” spoken out against stem-cell research, and had that infamous anti-Semitic rant.

Bruce Willis








Bruce Willis has supported George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and was a speaker at the 2000 Republican Convention. But don’t try to label him. He told a reporter in 2006: “I’m sick of answering this f***ing question. I’m a Republican only as far as I want a smaller government, I want less government intrusion. I want them to be fiscally responsible and I want these goddamn lobbyists out of Washington. Do that and I’ll say I’m a Republican… I hate the government, OK?”

Joan Rivers









TV personality legend Joan Rivers has explicitly said she’s a Republican (back in 2002.) When Time Out Chicago asked her why she voted for Obama, she said: “I am for anyone that will give me lower taxes, stop all this stupid spending. Whoever promises me that gets this chicken’s vote.”

Sylvester Stallone









Sylvester Stallone is an openly strong supporter of the Republican party. He attended Bush’s inauguration and has been awarded with a certificate from then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger for filming Rocky Balboa in Los Angeles rather than a cheaper, overseas location.

Robert Downey Jr.









Another A-List Hollywood star to add to the growing list of Republican Celebrities is Robert Downey Jr. Downey is a registered Republican who spoke at the 2008 Republican National Convention and also endorsed US Senator John McCain for President.
