Shawshank Me: Tim Robbins Supports Conservatives?!

Screen Shot 2013-01-31 at 9.35.13 AMTim Robbins has opened up publicly about why he contributed money to some conservatives since 2006, including tea-party favorite Michele Bachmann and J.D. Hayworth.

“I don’t vilify all Republicans, I don’t believe all Republicans are evil, I believe there are lots of good people who just believe differently,” Robbins said last week before an audience, where he was interviewed by liberal comedian Marc Maron, according to The Washington Times.

Robbins ans his former partner and ‘Bull Durham” co-star Susan Sarandon were among Hollywood’s most committed liberals and activists.

Robbins opposed the Gulf War, backed Ralph Nader’s 2000 campaign for president and routinely satirized the right.

But in 2006 he contributed to 10 Republicans, according to Federal Election Commission records. He didn’t deny it and never discussed them.

As part of the LATalks Live series last week, he did.

“One thing I will say is that I’m really SICK of divisiveness,” Robbins said. “I’ve been all over this country and was really vilified during the [Iraq] War for having the stupid assumption that maybe we should find the weapons of mass destruction before starting a war. … Basically, places like Fox [News Channel] said I can’t go anywhere because people are so pissed off at me for being against the war. When in fact, the opposite was true.
