In 2017, "Fraiser" star Kelsey Grammer said that being a self-proclaimed Republican in the acting industry is like having "a target on your back."
He said that knowledge didn't dissuade him from the party, but it did prevent him from dipping his toes into a political career.
"I don't think [I would go into politics], it's just too nasty now. I think you could always rise above it, but just stop thinking it's really right for me," Grammer told Kirsty Young during a 2017 episode of BBC Radio 4's "Deserted Island Discs".

Candace Cameron Bure followed in Elisabeth Hasselbeck's footsteps in 2015 when she took the hot seat as a Republican co-host on ABC's The View. The actress left the company after two seasons.
"That was a super tough job," she told Good Housekeeping (via Entertainment Tonight) in 2020, referring to her time on the talk show. "It's helped me a lot to grow, but it's been the toughest job I've had ... You always feel like you're struggling to speak your mind."
Though she is adamant about her beliefs, Bure said the Republican Party is far from perfect.
"Everyone is there for themselves, not for the country," the Fuller House actress said of the 2016 Republican presidential nominee in an interview with Fox News ahead of the 2016 election. "I'm disappointed in my party."
In October 2021, she posted a TikTok about being a "conservative in Hollywood," which apparently got shut down.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was the Republican governor of California.

Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger first launched his political career in 2003 when he became Republican governor of California. The 'Terminator' actor served two consecutive terms.
But while Schwarzenegger is an outspoken Republican, he doesn't necessarily support President Trump's policies.
In March 2018, entertainer Deadline said that President Trump was not doing California any favors.
"I'm so happy he only made one trip," Schwarzenegger said. "Look, I mean the fact that he doesn't want us to write off our state taxes is a direct attack on Californians. So I don't think he was good for California. I don't think he cares about California and I don't think California cares about him."
Elisabeth Hasselbeck has shared her views for years.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck wasn't afraid to speak her conservative mind during her stint on The View from 2003 to 2013.
After many political arguments with co-hosts Joy Baher and Rosie O'Donnell, the former season 2 Survivor alumna left the show to join Fox and Friends.
She returned to The View in August 2022.
Caitlyn Jenner has since said she is withdrawing her support for President Trump.

Caitlyn Jenner stirred the pot when the transgender rights advocate showed her support for Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
Though the former Olympian still considers herself a Republican, Jenner wrote an article for The Washington Post in 2018 to retract her belief that the President would support and advocate for the LGBTQ community.
"The reality is that the trans community is being relentlessly attacked by this President," Jenner wrote. "My hope in him - in her - was misplaced, and I cannot support anyone who works against our community. I don't support Trump. I have to learn from my mistakes and move forward.”
She has previously attempted to run for governor of California and now writes for Fox News.
James Woods has pledged his support to President Trump.

After showing his support for 2016 nominee Ted Cruz and swearing allegiance to Donald Trump, James Woods retired from acting in 2017.
The 'Casino' actor said in 2017 that he was blacklisted by Hollywood for being a Republican.

You might recognize Stacey Dash from her portrayal of Dionne in the '90s cult classic Clueless, but since the actress came out as conservative, she's said finding work hasn't been easy.
"You will only be tolerated if you fit your liberal profile," Dash told The Guardian in 2018. “I was blacklisted. I don't even come to auditions."
In March 2018, the Fox News contributor decided she was "done talking" and announced her convention campaign in Southern California, but pulled out less than a month later.
In March 2021, she apologized for supporting Trump after the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol.
Melissa Joan Hart said she felt it was easier to discuss her views now that she was in a new environment.

Not all conservative celebrities feel ostracized for expressing their Republican views.
In a 2013 interview with Fox News, actress Melissa Joan Hart said that back when she voted for Republican Bob Dole, her co-stars weren't exactly supportive.
However, these days she says she feels comfortable speaking her mind and genuinely enjoys hearing the political views of others.
"I'm pretty much surrounded by Republicans at work these days," Hart told Fox News. "It made it a little bit easier, but I love talking to my Democrat friends about how they see things."
Joy Villa has worn several fashions that express her political views.

At the 2017 Grammy Awards, the singer-songwriter walked the red carpet in a red, white and blue mermaid dress that featured President Trump's campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" on the front.
Designed by Andre Sorian, the dress sent Villa's message loud and clear: She supports President Trump.
"America is the greatest country on earth and @realDonaldTrump will go down in history as the GREATEST leader in world history," Villa posted on her social media accounts. “The one who brokered peace when no other peace could broker, forging a friendship with the Middle East, North Korea and soon Russia! #trumpworldpeace"
This wasn't the last time Villa wore her politics on the red carpet. She also wore a dress supporting Trump's reelection campaign to the 2020 Grammy Awards.
"I'm a socialite and a new Republican," Villa wrote in a 2018 op-ed for USA Today.

Kristy Swanson doesn't shy away from her conservative views and regularly defends her party on social media.
In August 2017, Chelsea Handler took to Twitter to challenge President Trump for his response to the tragic events of the Charlottesville attack, and Swanson was quick to launch a rebuttal.
When a fan responded, shocked by the actress' political stance, Swanson said she's always been a "proud Republican."
She has also been vocal about her support for President Trump. In December 2019, she tweeted: "Love our President, he is the BEST! @realDonaldTrump“.
Jon Voight has been a loyal Republican for years.

In 2016, The Telegraph dubbed Fantastic Beasts actor Jon Voight as Hollywood's "Republican-In-Chief."
According to the publication, Voight announced back in 2007 that he was a Conservative and has been loyal to the party ever since.
He has also regularly endorsed President Trump.
“He is an answer to our problems. We have to get behind him," Voight told Breitbart in 2016. “Republicans must unite behind this man. We need someone to go in and kind of reconstruct us, get us back to where we were, to who we need to be."
