6. Kurt Russell

Russell, star of movies like GrindhouseOverboardEscape From New York and its sequel,Escape from L.A, is also a libertarian. In 1996, he told the Toronto Sun, “I was brought up as a Republican. But when I realized that at the end of the day there wasn’t much difference between a Democrat and Republican, I became a libertarian.”

When Bill O’Reilly asked Russell about his politics, Russell responded, “Limited constitutional government. I believe in that. Freedom, freedom, freedom. And we’re living in a very interesting time right now for Libertarians because this American experiment is having a difficult time in terms of freedom.”
