The Los Angeles-born ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ actress, Julienne Davis was once a Democrat, much like most everyone else in Hollywood, but since she now came out as a conservative, she has received insults and death threats.
In a new op-ed on Fox News, Davis stated that about a year ago, I made one of the more risky decisions of my life – one that I knew could hurt my career as an actress. I decided to come out of the conservative closet and admit to my peers that I was a conservative in Hollywood.
“Members of the Hollywood left don’t want to listen, discuss, or even see a dissenting viewpoint that challenges their own comfortable echo chamber. It’s ironic that an industry that constantly talks about diversity is so judgmental, hateful and utterly rigid in its groupthink, “Davis said.
Davis said that she was faced with two options.
“Option 1: I could start apologizing to all my Hollywood liberal friends and associates who’d been shocked by my writing and tell them: ‘I didn’t really mean it … it was a paid gig and I was simply doing it for the work,’” Davis wrote.
“Option 2: I could have the courage of my convictions and continue down the conservative path,” she explained.
“So, being the person I am, I chose the second option. I refused to be a coward and be untrue to myself. I believed my path to be the more honest albeit more painful option, “said Davis.
That's just a lie. People can find your dumb pages easily. But they can't get their time back from visiting them. Stop lying.

And now as a result, she has received insults, death threats and lost longtime friends and acting jobs after publicly proclaiming her conservative beliefs.
“Since then I haven’t fared well. My ‘unfriendings’ on social media have been many – from acquaintances and close working associates to good friends – including even my best friend,” Davis wrote.
The model and singer said she was inundated with “very public insults from Hollywood peers on social media and elsewhere have been numerous,” and has “been attacked with obscenities, called a racist, and had one person tell me he hoped I would die.”
While blocking out the criticism aimed at her, Davis said she “noticed a particular upsurge in unfriendings immediately after the Charlottesville incident.”
“And of course, I know why: The media of choice for the left – including CNN, MSNBC, HuffPost, the New York Times and the Washington Post – all reported the incident in such a way as if to make it appear that all Trump supporters are Nazis,” she wrote.
The actress said she is “truly grateful for” her “more liberal friends who haven’t ditched me over politics.”
Davis is looking forward to furthering her career in Hollywood, admitting that “it will be interesting.” With no plan to “back down and lie to get ahead,” she’s “ready to have to take my career into my own hands in trying to find producers and funding for my own screenplay to get my film cast, shot, produced and distributed.”
“As one very high-up industry (and closeted conservative) person said to me recently: “Get back in that closet if you want to get that film made,” she wrote.
“Thanks for the tip, but there’s no going back. Wish me luck,” Davis concluded.
On why she became a conservative, Davis on her Facebook page explained, “For me it was 911. The truth of the Islamic ideology…. and it was onward from there. For another, it was Bill Clinton and his lies.”
