    Bill Hader beliefs politics

    Bill Hader – His Politics

    We couldn’t find anything that Bill has said about which political side he leans to. We did find out one thing: he doesn’t like President Donald Trump.

    In a 2019 interview Hader looked back on some of the characters he played on SNL, and how he wouldn’t have done them the same today. The comedian said that the current culture has changed. When asked why that happened, Hader gave the answer, “Having a racist misogynist as a president.”

    Asked to explain himself further, Hader commented, “You have a guy in office who would walk over someone dying in the street if they were African-American, or Hispanic, or a woman. I think people are sick of that and hurt by it. And by telling jokes that hurt people’s feelings, in a weird way you’re aligning yourself with the president, who is the worst insult comic in the world.” (1)


    Bill Hader – Anxiety Attacks

    Bill has said many times that he gets very nervous about his performances. He once told a fan that he performs a mental trick to lower his anxiety:

    “I purposely do something on air that I haven’t planned to get me out of my head. It’s like tricking your brain. It makes me feel like I screwed up so I can except that I screwed up and relax.” (2)

    Bill Hader – Trivia

    • There was a rumor that Bill Hader had once ruined the ending of James Cameron’s movie Titanic to a theater filled with “annoying sorority girls”. Hader actually confirmed that he did do this when he worked in a movie theater in Tempe, Arizona back in 1997. “And I was immediately fired. But it was so…so…SO worth it.” (2)
