Apatow: Rich People Don’t Care About Others, But Hollywood Liberals Do

Producer Judd Apatow said that “it’s ridiculous that anybody thinks that rich people care about other people” but Hollywood liberals are different on Tuesday’s broadcast of Bloomberg’s “With All Due Respect.”

Apatow was asked by co-host Mark Halperin, (relevant exchange begins around 3:40) “You’ve been outspoken about money in politics being a bad thing. Does that apply to money, big money, from Hollywood liberals in politics?”

Apatow responded, “Well, I just think it’s ridiculous that anybody thinks that rich people care about other people. It’s just as simple as that. Like when the Koch brothers give like a billion dollars for the new election cycle, it isn’t out of a great concern for the masses. So everyone is forced into this game.”

Halperin followed up, “But that applies from your point of view just as much to Hollywood liberals as to the Koch brothers?” Apatow answered, “I think the difference is that Hollywood liberals would be willing to change the entire system if we all would get the money out of it, and I don’t think that conservatives would do it.”
