Michael Sheen Has Confidence in Obama


FROST/NIXON star MICHAEL SHEEN is certain President BARACK OBAMA will lead the world to great things – because the Democrat is a “breath of fresh air”.

Obama was sworn in as the 44th president of the United States at a ceremony attended by millions in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday (20Jan09).

The Welsh actor was unable to attend the ceremony and had to watch the momentous event on television at home in England – but it didn’t quell his excitement at the “historic” appointment.

He tells FanBolt, “I think between the people on offer, I would have voted for Obama. People talk about historic occasions and that kind of stuff and I go ‘Yeah, I get it’, but this really is – it’s the first time I’ve thought it really is historic.

“The world seems to be a very crucial point in its history and things have gotten extreme and gone over the edge a bit and the idea that there’s a man who might be able to pull things back with common sense.”

And Sheen is convinced Obama is more than up to the leadership job.

He adds, “Obviously everyone is hopeful about that so it’s a really, really historic moment not just because of the race issue but because of where the world is at and it seems wherever he goes he is the cleverest man in the room, so it’s a breath of fresh air. It’s really a great moment.”

  1. I think a list of celebrities that don’t support Obama would be shorter. They always support the Democrats. This is really not all that surprising.
