Campaigning for a political candidate is not about the money. That would be selling oneself and one’s generation short. If any entertainer comes out tomorrow and starts campaigning for a candidate, I would not assume that they were paid for it because it would be shameful to know that they were paid.

“If one is supporting a candidate, it should be about what the candidate can offer the masses, not what one is paid. I don’t have to be paid to support any politician.”

Well now you have it! If the actress is not in a movie set acting she is producing seeing that she is also a filmmaker.
