“I was thinking if you’re feeling patriotic, you would appreciate free speech and one’s right to think as an individual,” actor tells longtime agent Ken Kaplan
“It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic. I don’t want to represent you anymore.
I mean I could go on a rant but you know what I’d say,” said Kaplan, who Woods described as a “political liberal.”
Kaplan is a partner at the The Gersh Agency. Among his others clients are Hollywood stars like Winona Ryder and Kristen Stewart, according to IMDbPro.
Despite once being a Hollywood A-lister, Woods has seen his career fall off dramatically in his elders years, a development he has attributed to being “blacklisted” for his conservative views.
The actor has also stirred controversy in the past for statements and opinions, like this one in which he appeared to call Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson a “saloon hooker.”
The “Casino” star also revealed he was a Democrat for years until President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, to which he said, “Every single #Democrat without exception stood behind a convicted perjurer.
That was the end.”
