Hollywood star Ed Begley Jr. has come clean and admitted that his climate activism hurt his career over the years.
The actor, who recently made a comeback in the hit TV show “Better Call Saul,” said he went through a long-acting dry spell in the ’90s.
He said he struggled to get work because producers were concerned he would be difficult to work with due to his promotion of green agenda propaganda.
“I gave people the creeps,” he said.
“People were afraid that I was going to point at them exiting their limo or their SUV and go, ‘How can you drive a car?’
“I was like, ‘This is what I do and if you want to do it, I’ll tell you how I did it.’
“The agents said, ‘You’ve got to back off a little bit because, you know, it’s hard to get you a job’.
“Director Joel Schumacher gave me two weeks on ‘Batman Forever’ and Brian Grazer and Ron Howard gave me six weeks on ‘Greedy.’ That’s it.
“Then Chris Guest bailed me out of movie jail with ‘Best in Show’ and I’ve been working ever since.”
“I loved every scene,” he says of working on Better Call Saul.
“Every word I uttered on the five years I did ‘Better Call Saul.’
“I just loved every minute of it, every moment on set.”
He said he survived the lack of work by living cheaply.
“Bills are very low because of all the stuff I did,” he said.
“I grow a lot of my own food.
“I collect my rainwater.
“I have my own electricity.
“I heat my water with the sun.
“All of it makes for a very inexpensive life.
“Just do what you can,” he said of how he would advise people who want to go green.
“Whatever you can afford, do it today.
“You know it’s not all or nothing.
“You do what you can.
“Everybody has to do what they can, what they can afford, what you have time for and there’s a lot that everybody can do now.”
