Sarah Michelle Gellar is Voting for Hillary Clinton Despite Republican Past

Sarah Michelle Gellar speaks to the crowd during the #BlogHer 16 Experts Among Us Conference on Friday (August 5) at the JW Marriott at L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The 39-year-old Cruel Intentions actress, who has been reported to lean Republican in her political views in the past, announced at the event that she’s voting for Hillary Clinton in the election.

“I am incredibly honored that my daughter lives in a time where she sees that a woman can possibly be President. I think that’s really important for daughters to understand that. Look it’s hard, both parties buy my products, you know what I mean?” Sarah said (via SheKnows.com). “That being said, I’m with her. I have known that family for a very long time. I believe that, you know, that there’s a lot of change that can be made and like I said, I’m incredibly proud to be able to look at my 7-year-old daughter and when she says, ‘Mommy, one day can I be president?’ I can honestly say to her, ‘Yeah, there’s a chance that you could,’ which is not something that my mother could say to me when I was that age. I think it’s all about shattering that glass ceiling and understanding that, ya know, we can change the world. Women can, men can, but we all have to work together as a team to do that.”

    Good for her! Here’s hoping many more Republicans follow suit.

    Funny democrates are going republican while this one is an idiot and voting for a female criminal..

  • Cruizin1960

    Just another “gender” voter. So disappointed with women who vote for this lying threat to our national security solely because she is a woman and it’s historic. Leaning Republican is not Republican. If she were a Republican, she would be voting Libertarian or Republican and #NeverHillary

    did you ACTUALLY call Buffy “the Cruel Intentions” actress?

    That’s like calling Carrie Fisher “the best friend from When Harry Met Sally.”
