Why do the West dislike Russia? List of stars and reasons for their dislike
You obviously know them, and even admire them: these are your favorite actors or musicians, whose roles and tracks you simply adore! But they don't like you... Yes, among celebrities there are those who not very fond of Russia. And now we are talking about certain customs and customs, as well as about the inhabitants of the country ... Fans are sure that it is better for art workers to stay out of politics and not express their negative thoughts in public, because there are fans of their work in every country! And how painful and unpleasant it is for them to hear such statements from an idol ... But - absolutely every opinion has the right to exist! You just need to take it for granted: there are those who love Russia (and there are quite a lot of such celebrities), and there are those who hate ... And this, in general, is normal: in Russia, too, there are media personalities who cannot stand the West ! So - less words, more to the point: this is the top celebritywho will never visit our country under any pretext! Let's start...
Movie Legend Ace Ventura: Pet Detective - famous actor Jim carrey very much loved by the Russian public! Many adore this man for his expressive facial expressions alone ... But here he Kerry is biased towards Russia. At the beginning 2018 year, he deleted his Facebook account and renounced his shares ... Thus, Kerry protested with regards to "Russian interference" in the US elections! As the artist put it, Russia interferes with America moving in the right direction...
It is worth noting that Jim did not say anything bad about the Russians themselves. Apparently, he was angered exclusively by the political side of the issue ...
Tom Waits - a famous American singer and songwriter, composer, as well as an actor ... However - his hostility to Russia exists to this day, and its roots go back to the distant past ... “I have always hated communism, and I am not going to come to the countries of the former USSR!" — said the artist in one of his interviews. In another interview, Waits called the Russians "terrible people" ... The artist's producer adds: "We each have our own phobia. Some are afraid of closed rooms, some are afraid of the dark, and Waits is afraid of the Russians!”
Legendary crime drama star "The Shawshank Redemption", grey-haired Freeman, apparently, also dislikes our country ... So, in 2016 - right before the presidential elections in America - the artist made an announcement: Russia allegedly attacked the States and is at war with them! BUT Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin Morgan even called him a "KGB spy"!
Charming Katy Perry also treats Russia rather strangely… Once she said that she would not visit our country “under any pretext!” But... when, after this statement, the sales of her records fell sharply in Russia, Perry changed her mind and nevertheless visited our the capital... The singer apologized for her remarks, and also added that she made hasty conclusions about Russia. But, apparently, the lesson did not benefit the artist ... A few years later, the singer visited the Jimmy Kimmel show: when she was offered to spin the globe to choose the country she would go to during her next trip, Perry shouted with a grin: “God, please , but not Russia! If it was a joke, it was rather inappropriate ... The host laughed awkwardly, but the Russian fans were very offended by this incident. Record sales are dropping again...
This blonde beauty is famous from movies X-Men, The Hunger Games, Mom!… We also overlooked the thriller "Red Sparrow", in which Lawrence stubbornly refused to act ... And all because she had to play Russian spy. And no, this role was not just an excuse to "damage" ... Later, Jennifer made a statement:
“I didn’t want to have anything to do with Russia!”
And this is not the only time when the actress expressed her contempt towards our country ... At a press conference dedicated to the film "Mom!", Lawrence simply refused to talk to Russian journalists. At her request, they were simply politely escorted out of the building...
Though Ian McKellen became a star "Lord of the Rings", a film that is very loved in Russia, the artist himself dislikes our country ... In particular, all because of the limited rights of minorities ... “For me personally, such laws are unacceptable!” McKellen said. As for the opponents of various communities, the actor called them "disgusting" and "inhuman".
Mark Ruffalo followed McKellen's example and declared that Russian laws seem to him "inhuman!" Here is what the actor said in his interview:
“Why does Russia not understand that only evil breeds? Love will save the world in any of its manifestations ... "
Generally Ruffalo considers our country “backward”: as the artist put it, Russia still has to “evolve for a long time ...”
Like the previous heroes of the article, Cher unhappy with minority rights in Russia… Because of this, she even refused to participate in the opening olympic games 2014 in Sochi!
“Until Russia learns to adequately relate to the choice of a person, I will not perform in this country, and even more so love it ...,” the singer said.
