While politicians have now become synonymous with scandals, outrageous statements and endless speeches, a few decades ago they were quite revered. In the course of the last few decades, the line between politician and celebrity has become blurred with more and more people from the entertainment industry taking to politics. When an actor decides to make a foray into politics, not a lot needs to change. As Reagan himself once commented, “Why can’t politicians be actors?” Reciting long speeches, touring, ‘mingling’ with the commoners, avoiding controversy and maintaining an appealing personality- an actor is already adept at all this. Sure, there are some who have genuine political beliefs, but jumping on to the political bandwagon is certainly not an easy task. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and look at actors who also made it as successful politicians.
