Anti-Arnie lobby swells

Los Angeles, Sept. 7 (AFP): Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks, Cybill Sheperd and Sylvester Stallone are the latest stars in Hollywood’s constellation who say they don’t want to see fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger move to the California governor’s mansion.

“No, I won’t vote for Arnold,” said Ford in Berlin, where he was promoting his latest movie with girlfriend Calista Flockhart.

Hanks was furious when he heard rumours, later denied, that a powerful actors agency planned to support Schwarzenegger’s candidacy. “Tom was furious when (a misleading) article in the Los Angeles Times appeared on Tuesday, saying Creative Artists Agency would help Arnold in his bid for governor,” the New York Post said.

For Sheperd, star of the popular television series Moonlighting, if the muscle-bound Austrian-born action hero were to win the October 7 recall election, “that would be the worst tragedy in the history of California”.

“I think that we are the laughing stock of the world, with Arnold Schwarzenegger running (for) governor,” sheperd told Access Hollywood.

Stallone warned his colleague against politics.
