Is Hollywood softening its opinion on Sarah Palin?
Over the weekend, the former Alaska governor got a surprising show of support from actor Ashton Kutcher, who trashed the media for digging through thousands of emails Palin sent when she was in office.
"As much as I'm not a fan of Sarah Palin I find sifting through her emails repulsive and over reaching media," Kutcher said on Twitter.
The message was re-tweeted by his wife, actress Demi Moore, who added, "So agree!"
Their messages came as Palin got a boost from another potentially surprising source: David Mamet, the famously testy playwright, screenwriter and film director who confessed he's "crazy about" the ex-governor.
In an interview with the Financial Times (and re-printed in Slate), Mamet, who announced during the 2008 election that he was no longer a "brain dead liberal," trashed President Obama, calling his record "abysmal." Asked whom he would prefer as president, Mamet was mum on every single GOP candidate named, except for Palin.
"I am crazy about her," he confessed. "Would she make a good candidate for president? I don't know, but she seems to have succeeded at everything she puts her hand to."
He cited Palin's rise from a PTA parent to governor of Alaska. "That's someone who knows how to work," he says.
