Romney Gains Coveted Jenna Jameson, Clint Eastwood Endorsements

President Obama’s support in Hollywood might be slipping—and at least one of the Valley’s most famous porn stars is now playing for the other team.

Clint Eastwood and Jenna Jameson have both endorsed presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney—in very different venues.


The so-called “queen of porn,” Jameson announced from the stage of a San Francisco strip club that she was supporting Romney, saying, “When you’re rich, you want a Republican in office.” While her taxes may be the only thing Jameson hasn’t put on display, we can assume her comments were an allusion to the belief that Romney won’t require wealthier Americans to pay more money to the government. Ron Jeremy, on the other hand, has said he'd like to see a second Obama term.

For his part, Clint Eastwood endorsed Romney at a $2 million-grossing fundraiser at the actor’s Sun Valley, Idaho, home. Eastwood also suggested he was supporting Romney because he thought the GOP candidate would restore “a decent tax system.”

Eastwood’s Super Bowl ad about Detroit had stirred speculation of an Obama endorsement—but you never know when you’re going to get a plot twist in politics.
