About a year ago I made one of the more risky decisions of my life one that I knew could hurt my career as an actress. I decided to come out of the conservative closet and admit to my peers that I was a conservative in Hollywood.
Yes, hard as it is for some to believe, not everyone in the entertainment industry on the Left Coast is a left-winger.
An acquaintance had asked me to write for a right-of-center political magazine. I realized I would be outing myself by doing it, but I ended up writing a few dozen articles with a right-leaning libertarian slant that were well received.
Sadly, the magazine closed and I was faced with two options.
Option 1: I could start apologizing to all my Hollywood liberal friends and associates whod been shocked by my writing and tell them: I didnt really mean it it was a paid gig and I was simply doing it for the work.
Option 2: I could have the courage of my convictions and continue down the conservative path.
The first option may have brought me liberal forgiveness. Lets be honest, many of us in Hollywood whore ourselves out for work, a pay check and another credit for our resumes.
But I knew if I took Option 1 that I would have to never speak or post anything that even squeaked of conservatism again. I would have to nod and agree with all the constant comments and wild accusations against President Trump the racist, the misogynist, the one who is trying to destroy the world. Sigh.

“Since then I havent fared well. My unfriendings on social media have been many from acquaintances and close working associates to good friends including even my best friend. It is interesting to note that all of them just stopped calling and quietly ghosted me, and then later unfriended me.”
What tolerant “friends” she had in Hollywood.
How could anyone believe that those who would “unfriend” them because of their political preferences were really friends to begin with........
Nice-looking lady, but if a part in “Eyes Wide Shut” is her claim to fame, perhaps it’s not too late for her to start a career as an actuary.
Do you know how hard it is to pass those actuary tests?
Yes. I used to work in a life insurance company. However, just because the lady appeared in a cruddy movie doesn’t mean she isn’t intelligent.
Yeah I agree.
Good for her.
I like Her writing as Well!
If she referred to herself as an "actress" rather than an "actor", that alone could sink her career.
That role was her earliest I see on imdb, and she was clothing free.
Well, Jenna Jameson supports Trump.
A huge fan of Stanley Kubrick’s work, but I never saw “Eyes Wide Shut”, mostly because I find Tom Cruise intensely annoying. Doesn’t sound like I missed much.
Who is this actress? Have I seen her in anything?
Seems like most actresses these days have done nude or mostly-nude roles.
My post had nothing to do with her intelligence, only that to become an actuary is quite difficult.
EWS was like an old man from the 1950s idea of art porn. It was laughable. Kubrick was ahead of his time with 2001 and A Clockwork Orange. By the late ‘90’s, he was a man behind the times.
I understand. I was just pointing out that it’s not impossible she could make an actuary if she exerted herself.
