all right well she’s a Hollywood actress who shared the big screen with the likes of Tom Cruise you are very very lucky you know that well actress Julian Davis breaking the Hollywood mold the liberal mold revealing that she’s a conservative in a new opinion piece she writes this the written and very public insults from Hollywood peers on social media and elsewhere have been numerous members of the Hollywood left don’t want to listen discuss or even see a dissenting viewpoint the challenges their own comfortable echo chamber it’s ironic that an industry that constantly talks about diversity is so judgmental hateful and utterly rigid in its group think end quote actress Julian Davis joins us right now thank you so much for joining us we appreciate it fully outed here on Fox and Friends evidence field of which you’ve done already I’m a bit overwhelmed actually I didn’t expect this response in any way shape or form so yeah it’s

it’s really overwhelming what what does it mean to be a conservative today how would you define conservatism in your mind for me I I believe in freedom I believe in capitalism I believe that I believe in the autonomy of the individual that the individual and their own self-respect their own way for them to build themself up and make their own life I think that’s really important rather than depending on the state we hear that we hear the that’s a great description by the way we hear the description of Hollywood as well as this sort of completely liberal town you’re affirming that that’s exactly what it is why were you so fed up why did you feel to do that it’s actually not just liberal it’s very very progressive yeah it’s not just liberals so how hard was that I mean because you’ve been in Hollywood for years and years I mean you go to parties you know you’re on the set of a movie you know filming a movie do you just try to be part of the conversations and agree with people and kind of hold yourself back um yeah oftentimes I would just kind of bite my lip you know and just not say anything or I would say yeah you know and I try and play the fence for four years I played the fence and I just I got to the point where I just thought you know what no I’m not going to live in fear anymore what’s wrong with something permanent you mentioned self-determination you said you mentioned self-determination is sort of the foundation of your conservative

beliefs it seems like that that Hollywood would champion that there’s so many stories of people getting on a bus moving from Kansas to move out to Hollywood to try to make it on their own exactly I think that the thing that Hollywood is sort of like a microcosm of what’s happening all over the country today we are not accepting of all views and Hollywood of all places should be accepting of all views I don’t understand why why this is happening and that’s why I mean you know people are going to call me a pariah or think of me as a pariah in Hollywood but I’m just glad that at least somebody even though it’s just little old me can speak up and I just I just feel like I’m speaking up for a lot of people that are afraid to speak up you very much are you’re not a pariah here for sure briefly it at the end is anyone else come to you you know privately instead I’m with you yes so they’re out there there’s thousands of people have come to me and said that and I believe Hollywood I don’t feel like I’m in a few yes of you nobody you want to hate you you’re not going to get them yeah you know what I would never do that to them because the thing is is that a lot of these people are they’re right in the middle of the Hollywood machine they’re working for a network or a studio and to do that I mean they would get fired yes amazing believable thing isn’t there’s a lot of really a lot of the really big actors or directors or producers or whatever that are conservative and they’re making a lot of money for

the studios and networks of course those people aren’t going to get fired well I’m kind of like the little guy in Hollywood the little guy that if we spoke up we’re expendable and they would much rather not have one of us and have one of their own and that’s the problem because you think you know there’s a lot of conservatives out there or maybe people that have a slightly dissenting belief that have a lot to offer artistically you know they’re talented they they they have great ideas they’ve got integrity they work hard and and those people are just going to be shut down yeah well thank you for facing your fears and being true to yourself and sharing your story with us this morning Julia feeling I know it’s not easy you’ve done a great thing feel that it’s a thank you we appreciate that a great thing Hollywood should be a voice for all different types of people Julianne so thank you so much for writing in Abed so taller
