Kurt Russell Believes Actors Should 'Step Away from Saying Anything' Political

Kurt Russell is talking about politics in Hollywood.

During a new interview, the 69-year-old actor says he thinks that actors should stay out of politics.

“I’ve always been someone who felt we are court jesters. That’s what we do,” Kurt shared with The New York Times.

“As far as I’m concerned, you should step away from saying anything so that you can still be seen by the audience in any character,” Kurt added.

Kurt did mention that there’s “no reason entertainers can’t learn just as much as anybody else about a subject, whatever it is.”

“But I think that what’s sad about it is that they lose their status as a court jester,” Kurt admitted. “And I’m a court jester. That’s what I was born to do.”

Kurt‘s longtime love Goldie Hawn was also part of the interview, and to her, she feels that celebrities voicing their political opinions is a “personal choice.”

If you didn’t know, all of these celebrities have run for political office over the years.
