Has Tim Robbins turned conservative?
Actor Tim Robbins is making heads turn again.
Not only has the outspoken liberal managed to separate from longtime girlfriend Susan Sarandon without much fanfare, but according to the Daily Beast, Robbins has donated $5,000 to various Republicans in the House and Senate, including Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).
"Former GOP congressman J.D. Hayworth of Arizona, who lost in 2006 despite Robbins' $500 donation, was baffled and surprised. ... 'Maybe because I covered the Durham Bulls as a sports broadcaster in the late 1970s and early '80s? Maybe because I used to frequently rent Bob Roberts back in the '90s?' Hayworth wondered, mentioning two of Robbins' starring vehicles. 'All I can say is, 'Thank you!' I hope he enjoyed the Christmas card.'"
