Bedhead covered some quotes from Angie Harmon’s More Magazine cover profile several days ago – go here to see. Some additional quotes have been released and OMG, Angie Harmon is a broken record about her Republican politics and how everyone hates her because she’s a Republican. Angie notably went off about her politics shortly after Pres. Obama was first elected. She gave a two-part interview to Fox News about how everyone who criticizes Obama gets labeled a “racist” and how she’s been passed over for jobs in liberal Hollywood because of her conservative politics. I think the whole “passed over for jobs” thing is particularly weird considering one of the most celebrated and beloved people in Hollywood is Clint Eastwood, a conservative Republican who has actually held public office as a Republican (and who yelled at a chair during last year’s RNC). Anyway, here are some new thoughts from Angie:
Her politics: “I’m a liberal Republican…we actually exist. Call it naïveté or stupidity, but I didn’t know that unless you are a Democrat, you aren’t allowed to talk politics in Hollywood.”
Her early start in modeling: “I loved every moment of it,” she said. “I’m in Azzedine Alaïa’s factory and doing fittings [talking to] Giorgio Armani — he was so interesting. I do wonder now if Karl [Lagerfeld] or Giorgio would remember me, because they’ve seen so many faces since mine.”
On therapy: “I believe in therapy. I don’t believe in staying in it for life. When you have an issue, you go talk to someone, get your issue taken care of, then you go live your life, and you’re armed with the tools to do it correctly.”
“I didn’t know that unless you are a Democrat, you aren’t allowed to talk politics in Hollywood.” She says to More Magazine, after breaking the chains of liberal discrimination against attractive women in Hollywood, all so she can promote her popular TV show on a cable station founded by noted liberal Ted Turner. Those dastardly liberals! But here’s what I really think is going on: Angie is like the Olivia Wilde of the Republican party. Those of us who followed Olivia Wilde’s involvement in Democratic politics know exactly what that means. It’s not that we don’t like Angie’s particular politics. It’s that it’s annoying when an actor doing mediocre work gets on their high horse and deigns to tell us what we should think about liberal or conservative politics.
