Vince Vaughn es republicano

Vince Vaughn es uno de los rostros más reconocibles del Hollywood actual, con variedad de webs de fans dedicadas a él. Este joven actor nacido en 1970 dio sus primeros pasos en series como Playa de China y dio el salto al cine con la “independiente” Swingers, donde Spielberg se fijó en él para participar en El Mundo Perdido. A partir de ahí la carrera de Vaughn no ha parado, alternando papeles serios como en Psicosis o La Celda, con comedias gamberras rodadas junto a un grupo de amigos que se ha dado el llamar el “Frat Pack” (reedición del “Rat Pack” de Sinatra”). Así, los Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell y Vince Vaughn, entre otros, han producido películas tan divertidas como Zoolander, Starsky y Hutch, Aquellas Juergas Universitarias o Dodgeball. Si bien no acostumbra a inmiscuirse en asuntos políticos, Vaughn ha defendido en el extranjero la política exterior de su país, y es bien conocido que simpatiza y vota a la derecha de los EEUU.

I don't know if he's Republican or not but actor Vince Vaughn (he played the Norman Bates role in the "Psycho" remake a couple of years ago) is a Bush supporter.
My sister lives in Hollywood and when she encountered Vince at a party, he asked her who she was going to vote for. She's taken a lot of heat for supporting Bush and figured he would give her a hard time but she stood her ground. When she said, "Bush" he grinned and said "Good girl!".

However, that attitude didn't quite cut it when he and Wilson tried to get into a private soiree at the Four Seasons, where they stayed while filming in Washington, D.C. "It was for Young Republicans from Texas or something," Wilson says. "Vince actually is a Republican and they didn't believe him. They saw me and said, 'Come on in.' But to Vince, they said, 'We know YOU'RE not a Republican.' "
Vaughn later made up for any hassle by snagging an invite to the White House, getting a private tour and meeting President Bush. No crashing required.

"I'd say one in three conversations wound up the same way, basically that 'America is the devil.' So I'd ask folks to think about the Marshall Plan a bit and get back to me," says Vaughn, 32, referring to the Allied blueprint for the reconstruction of Europe after World War II. "In the end, though, I just had to tell people, 'I'm not having this discussion anymore.'"
But if you're heading overseas, be prepared to have it. Again and again. If the past 100 years were widely considered the American Century, this new one is fast shaping up as the Anti-American Century. [...]
During Vaughn's stay in England, he found himself criticized on all those levels. Like a boxer countering each blow, he shot back with the best responses he could.
