Robert Duvall

The Lonesome Dove (above) and Godfather icon was a longtime conservative, though he said in a 2014 interview that he would “probably vote Independent next time” and expressed his opinion that “the Republican Party is a mess.”

He added: “I think it was Jack Kerouac who said something like, ‘Don’t run down my country. My people are immigrants, so I believe in this country with all its faults. To me, it’s a big country that’s made mistakes.'”

But he’s not fan of the far left, either: “Some of the bleeding-heart left-wing, extreme left-wing, are actually different from liberals.”

And he criticized Democrats’ record on race during the Civil Rights Era, saying “all the atrocities in the South were committed by the Democratic Party.” He also said, however: “I believe in a woman’s choice.”
