Asked her thoughts on the Republican vice presidential candidate, who is anti-abortion and an advocate of abstinence-only education, despite having a pregnant, unwed, 17-year-old daughter, Meg Ryan didn’t hold back her disapproval.
“I was watching her speak at the convention and I was mostly struck by how people of equal intelligence can believe utterly different things,” she said at a press junket promoting her latest movie, “The Women.” “I don’t agree with her policies. I’m a person who’s going to vote for Obama.”
“It’s amazing that a woman has come that far,” she added. “But from what I know about her, her policies are not things I agree with.”
Jada Pinkett Smith, Ryan’s co-star, summed up her stance by showing her love for another woman.
“I’m voting for Michelle,” she said, referring, of course, to Democratic candidate Barack Obama’s wife.
