This weekend's Conservative Theatre Festival and the contentions of its founder that the theater world leans too far left offers an opportunity to revisit the oft-decried-by-the-right "liberal Hollywood elite," and to recall that there are some conservatives among the entertainment industry's "elite" as well.

This weekend's Conservative Theatre Festival and the contentions of its founder that the theater world leans too far left offers an opportunity to revisit the oft-decried-by-the-right "liberal Hollywood elite," and to recall that there are some conservatives among the entertainment industry's "elite" as well.

While their reasons for leaning right and the extent to which they attempt to leverage their status to advance political and/or social causes vary, here is a brief rundown of some conservative celebs.

Dwayne Johnson

"The Rock" has spoken at the Republican National Convention and is a registered Republican, although he holds some liberal social views. He's a moderate-right Republican in the mold of Arnold Schwarzenegger, and might just join Arnold in seeking public office at some point.

Patricia Heaton

Former "Everybody Loves Raymond" star and currently the mom on TV's "The Middle," Heaton is a longtime outspoken Republican, campaigning for John McCain and Mitt Romney. While she was open about her disdain for Donald Trump, she remains supportive of conservative positions on abortion, Israel/Palestine and embryonic stem cell research.

Vince Vaughn

The comic actor has not gone out of his way to declare his political affiliation, but a 2015 Playboy interview revealed strong Libertarian leanings, including an opposition to gun control.

Chuck Norris

Yeah, you pretty much knew this one.

Sarah Michelle Gellar

"Buffy" is a registered Republican and a member of the Hollywood Congress of Republicans. That said, she told multiple media outlets she voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Gary Sinise

Sinise is mostly publicly linked with his support for the military and veterans, and has been openly critical of the Obama Administration in its foreign policy dealings.

Clint Eastwood

The former nonpartisan mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, infamously delivered a speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention, addressing an empty chair that was supposed to represent President Barack Obama. Liberal on civil rights, he is probably best described as Libertarian.

Tamera Mowry

The former child actress and current co-host of talk show "The Real" is a born-again Christian and is married to Fox News correspondent Adam Housley.

Victoria Jackson

The former "Saturday Night Live" cast member has supported Republican candidates, including Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann. She called President Obama a communist and told Politico her values include "pro-life, less government, strong military."
