It is a widely known fact that Steven Spielberg is not a Republican. However, the Oscar-winning director recently praised New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on his response to Hurricane Sandy and embracing President Obama regardless of their political differences.
“Gov. Chris Christie was a hero for me,” Spielberg told The Hollywood Reporter. “He was able to put party politics aside for the greater good. And the fact that he would, right at the end of the election cycle, tell the truth about his gratitude — he was my hero.”
