Jon Voight believe’s he’s backing the winning candidate.
The 80-year-old actor was on hand at the premiere of his daughter Angelina Jolie’s new movie “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” late last month where he stopped to speak with The Hollywood Reporter.
“It’s wonderful for me to spend time with Angie. Any five minutes I get, I’m always appreciative, so this is great that I could come and hang out with her a little bit — and the kids, too,” Voight said.
“I’m a father and a fan,” he added of his daughter. “Like all really fine actors, Angie has got her own unique approach and, you know, set of understandings. She’s very strong about that. When she comes to a set, she’s so totally comfortable. She knows what she wants.”
Voight also spoke about being a conservative in Hollywood and the request THR received by actors Debra Messing and Eric McCormack to publish a list of all the attendees at a Donald Trump fundraiser in Beverly Hills last month.
”The left was so concerned about the Hollywood Ten during the ‘50s but they are not at all concerned with the black list today and people losing jobs,” he said.
“They are very outspoken about it and they attack anybody who is for Trump or who is for the Republican party,” Voight continued. “The Democratic party has been undermined and overtaken, and I wish it could recoup itself and that there could be people who would stand up for the Democratic party that we have known and we have counted on and there are not anybody in that group who is standing up and protecting it. They are falling in.”
Asked about Trump’s chances for re-election in 2020, Voight offered, “Donald Trump is going to win the presidency once again and this is going to be proven to be nonsense just as the two years with [the Mueller Report] and millions of dollars wasted and has taken those people in the House who are Democrats away from doing the business of the people.”
