Kelsey Grammer doesn’t think being a conservative in Hollywood has interfered with his success at all.
During an interview with Stephen Colbert on Thursday night, the 60-year-old actor said he hasn’t gotten the cold shoulder because of his political views.
“Honestly if you’re good at what you do, that’s not going to exist, and I’ve had pretty reasonable success with my career,” Grammer said.
“I think there’s a predilection towards you know, dismissing someone who doesn’t think they way you do. That’s kind of common ground I guess. I guess that happens to a lot of people.” (RELATED: This Huge Country Star Just Revealed The Republican She’s Supporting For President)
“But no, I haven’t been shunned in any way, especially in Broadway. It’s funny, the Broadway community kind of sees past all that. Tolerance actually does exist on Broadway.”Grammer added that he’s supporting Dr. Ben Carson for president. (RELATED: Kanye West Just Called This Republican Candidate ‘Brilliant’)
“I honestly like Ben Carson,” he said. “I like him a lot. He’s the only guy who isn’t really part of the deal, you know?”
