But it always makes me laugh when people ask actors opinions on things, because our job is exactly the opposite—it’s to give the opinion of the writers. I didn’t become a politician, and I didn’t become a CEO of a charity. I became an actor. I can assume one argument, but if I’d played another character, I could’ve assumed the other side of the argument.
That’s some real talk. Also one of the tertiary reasons that I don’t watch broadcast news anymore. How many times have I seen an anchor asking an entertainer about their opinions on politics or foreign policy or global events? Their opinion does matter or carry weight.
