Endangered Species -- The Hollywood Conservative

"I have a really interesting political point of view, and it’s not always something I say too loud at dinner tables here, but you can’t go from a $2,000-a-night suite at La Mirage to a penitentiary and really understand it and come out a liberal. You can’t. I wouldn’t wish that experience on anyone else, but it was very, very, very educational for me and has informed my proclivities and politics every since."

Robert Downey Jr.'s life has made him realize that personal responsibility matters. Is that why he is now a conservative? I agree with The Weekly Standard Blog that it is just nice to see him getting it together. I remember seeing Chaplin and thinking he was one of the most talented actors of his generation, maybe he can regain his Hollywood prestige.
