Anthony Hopkins on Why He Doesn’t Talk About Politics: ‘Actors Are Pretty Stupid’

 

“People ask me questions about present situations in life, and I say, ‘I don’t know, I’m just an actor,'” Hopkins told Pitt. ” I don’t have any opinions. Actors are pretty stupid. My opinion is not worth anything. There’s no controversy for me, so don’t engage me in it, because I’m not going to participate.”

 

“Sadly, the new generation of Hollywood stars has a different opinion. Take Mark Ruffalo, the millionaire actor who recently endorsed Bernie Sanders. This multi-millionaire (who’s reportedly worth $30 million) wrote on Twitter that “it’s time for an economic revolution. Capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”The general reaction to Ruffalo’s tweet was one of amusement: the only person who didn’t understand that it was slightly ironic that he was blasting the very system that made him rich and famous was Ruffalo himself. Everybody else was laughing at him.”

“Let’s hope that Hopkins’ words carry some weight with other movie stars — especially with those who think they have to use their fame to spread and defend their outrageous communist views. Please. Just shut up. Nobody’s interested in your political views. OK? Thanks.”
