    Does getting them off pirate bay torrents count?

    lol. Good luck. Might as well just stop watching movies.

    Edit: Don't mean to be negative, just... I don't see how you could possibly do this... There are so many actors in movies... Or maybe you just mean the stars of the movies? But what about other key players in production, what if it's directed by an anti-gun director? Or produced with a production company that has primarily anti-gun shareholders? Etc. etc. I can't imagine doing that much research every time I want to watch a silly movie...

    I find the idea of idea of elevating actors to such an important status as to change my life based on their political/social views ridiculous.
    The masses may treat them as gods but I cannot abide it. I don't give two squirts what any of them think and certainly won't be altering what I choose for entertainment based on it.

    I don't worry about the cashiers views at Food Lion. Should I stop shopping there because she might be anti gun?

    Actors should just do their job, they are not box office hits because of their political views. People should stop giving them credibility for anything other than acting.

    There are some actors who have been so public, vocal and IMO outrageous in their politicals that I cannot separate a character they play from what they said. They've essentially been type cast in my mind to the point that I can't buy into any character they play. Obviously I don't watch their movies. Others I choose not to pay to see their movies as I don't want to fund their positions through buying their product.

    Your Food Lion cashier? Is he/she an actor? If not, start your own thread. This one is specific of actors.

    Gee that time of the month?

    The point is that their job has nothing to do with their political opinion. If you can't see that it is not my problem. If you don't like the post report it.

    That triangle does not do anything ... haven't you heard? Its like the "walk" button on electric poles at intersections.

    Also, hardly reportable ... if you are willing to watch major actors' movies who hate the 2nd amendment, that's up to you. I won't. Many others will not either ~ just trying to get information out. What's the objection to that? You may also click the small triangle. click click clicky all you wanty.

    You are free to do what you wish, as the rest of us. If you don't like my posts you have two choices, report and complain, or just "bugger off".

    yeah, if you're going to avoid all actors that don't support the 2nd Amendment that's going to leave you with about 5 actors to watch. Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis are the only two I can think off off the top of my head.

    And even then they're all going to be in movies with actors that don't support our rights. So like Wolf said, you have to separate their personal views from their work.
