Actress Mila Kunis has always been an outspoken liberal Democrat, but her recent endorsement of Hillary Clinton may have her choosing sides between her man and her hopes of a female president.
In an interview with The Telegraph on Saturday, Kunis claimed her outright support Clinton and continued backing of President Obama’s policies.
“I would love her to have a woman [in the White House], to think, ‘If there’s a woman president, what is there that I can’t do?'” Kunis told the publication. “I’m a Democrat. My husband [actor Ashton Kutcher] is a Democrat. I’m not one of those who voted for Obama and then said, ‘He didn’t do me right so now I’m off the Obama ship.’ I stand by him to this day. He’s implemented health care. It’s not perfect, but it’s beginning the process.”
Kunis may be excited about Clinton and the prospects of raising her daughter with a female president, but the former Secretary of State isn’t a big fan of her husband’s business.
At an economics speech in New York City on Monday, Clinton slammed the corporate policies of Uber, a car service that Kutcher’s venture capitalist firm has invested in for years.
“I’ll crack down on bosses who exploit employees by misclassifying them as contractors or even steal their wages,” Clinton said referring to Uber during the speech.
Kutcher’s firm, A-Grade Investments, has invested in several technology startups including Spotify, Uber, Shazam, Soundcloud, and Airbnb. The actor is especially fond of Uber often defending the company, even in the face of questionable practices like digging up dirt on their critics in the media.
There has been no comment yet by Kutcher on Clinton’s critiques or any word on if he might have to support Bernie Sanders or even a Republican in 2016. But if Clinton keeps attacking Uber she might find herself losing a celebrity endorsement.
