‘Sopranos’ Star Suggests Hollywood Celebrities Are Getting Paid to Support Biden

“The Sopranos” actress Drea de Matteo has suggested that Hollywood stars and other celebrities are being paid to publicly support President Joe Biden and the Democrats.

During a Monday interview on Fox News’s “Jesse Watters Primetime,” Matteo claimed that Hollywood is full of “quiet” Trump supporters.

She argues that actors throwing their weight behind Biden are being paid to do so.

Matteo appeared on the show to discuss the recent lineup of Hollywood stars that have come forward to speak about their support of Biden in this upcoming election.

Host Jesse Watters played a montage of the actors who claim to support Biden.

Watters then asked the actress if there were supporters of Trump in the deep-blue entertainment industry.

“Hello there, first of all. And I think there is a lot of them. I think there are a lot of — that was a hard intro to watch. I’m sorry,” Matteo laughed.

“Was it Jack Black’s legs?” Watters teased.

“No, it’s the Italian, man,” Matteo said.

“We’re talking about Fauci, we’re talking about De Niro.

“I am mortified right now by my people.

“I don’t know understand what we’re doing here.

“Anyhow, yes. There are a lot of quiet Trump supporters.

“There are a lot of Kennedy supporters.

“And wow, I wonder how much the actors got paid to endorse Biden at this point.

“I’m curious, because that seems — I wonder if De Niro got paid a locations fee because he had to travel to the courtroom to do that.”

“Is that how it works? Do you guys get paid?” Watters asked.

“I mean, can you just maybe not give them cash like Bob Menedez or slip them a gold bar, but can you just kinda make it like a silent deal like, ‘Oh, we’ll give you this next role or you know we’ll get you a book deal.’

“Is it something like that, or an appearance fee?”

“I don’t know,” Matteo responded.

“I don’t really maneuver inside that industry. I never have.

“First of all, ‘Sopranos,’ we were the outcast, even though we were critically acclaimed, we still were outcasts.

“So I’m still an outcast, here I am.

“They’re going to take me out into the woods and shoot me for not endorsing Biden,” she joked.


Within the last month, various high-profile celebrities have come forward online and at fundraisers to garner supporters behind the president as November grows closer.

Biden recently held a fundraiser within Hollywood, where entertainment stars such as George Clooney and Julia Roberts helped the president raise $30 million-plus, according to The Associated Press.

While Hollywood has been known to lean towards the support of Biden, Trump has begun to pull from other Democrat strongholds such as the Silicon Valley investors.

Just this month, Craft Ventures co-founder David Sacks held a fundraiser for the 45th president in San Francisco.

During the event, Sacks raised $12 million for Trump’s campaign.

Sacks described the fundraiser as a “total love fest.”
